Travel Insurance to Australia - know before you go

Australia tends to be warm all year-round. The winter period in Australia runs from June to August, but is still quite warm (at least compared to British winters!). Add the beautiful natural scenery to this and we can understand why it’s such a popular tourist destination. Crime rates are similar to that in the UK; make sure that you keep a close eye on your personal belongings in built-up tourist areas. Australia is home to numerous dangerous animal species, so be careful when exploring national parks as it can take a long time for emergency services to reach your location.

Holiday Insurance to Australia - Your Options

If you are travelling exclusively to Australia, then select “Worldwide exc. USA, Canada and the Caribbean” under area of travel. Depending on the length of stay, then Single Trip Travel Insurance may be the best option for you.

Are you travelling to and from Australia multiple times during the year? Then it’s almost always taking out an Annual Multi Trip Travel Insurance policy compared to buying multiple single policies.

“Somewhere I could get travel insurance just for me at last! Many firms require someone over the age of 18 to be travelling with you. I’m 17 and travelling with friends not family so needed my own policy. I was able to select which one suited me best, single trip between £15-£24 depending on how comprehensive you wanted it. Thanks flexicover” Reid, Swansea
