As much as we all dream of having the perfect overseas holiday, things can go wrong. Your travel plans are cancelled. You arrive on time, but your luggage is delayed—possibly forever. Or your money is stolen, leaving you stranded both physically and financially.
And what if you become sick or injured and need to go to hospital? Your health insurance won’t cover any overseas medical expenses, which means you could face a nasty bill at the end of your treatment.
That’s why you need international travel insurance if you’re heading overseas. It can reimburse you for the clothes you had to buy when your luggage went AWOL, and cover those medical treatments. It can even cover your personal liability expenses if you get into legal trouble.
Naturally, we have domestic travel insurance for your holiday within Australia too. Our beautiful country may be largely secure and safe but many of us are no strangers to theft and delayed trips. Cover to ensure that your trip isn't spoiled by the unforeseen will allow you to relax and to just enjoy the ride!
And while you may think you have the cheapest travel insurance, are you sure it’s the best travel insurance for you?
When it comes to cheap travel insurance in Australia, you need to look at more than just the price. So when you compare travel insurance, make sure you’re getting the cover you need at the price you can afford. And that’s exactly what you could get with Budget Direct’s Simply Smarter Travel Insurance.
