A 22-hour flight to Australia is an epic journey, but when there’s an array of natural and cultural delights to explore on the other side, it’s no surprise an average of 14,000 Brits jet off every week. Wonders like the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru and the wilderness of the Outback are unique to this vast continent, but the vibrancy of outdoorsy cities like Sydney and Melbourne (and some excellent wine) only add to its sun-drenched allure.
Australia will feel like home in no time, but as holidays tend to be at least two weeks long and full of outdoor pursuits, you’re strongly advised to take out travel insurance. Before you buy, check your policy covers all the activities you’re planning - especially the most adrenaline-fuelled!
If you are travelling exclusively to Australia, then select "Worldwide exc. USA, Canada & the Caribbean" under area of travel. Depending on the length of stay, then Single Trip Travel Insurance might be the best option for you.
Are you taking a longer trip to Australia (more than 100 days)? Our Long Stay Travel Insurance may be more relevant.
Are you planning to backpack around Australia? Maybe you're planning to visit another country afterwards, take a look at our Gap Year Travel Insurance policies, which are ideal for backpackers.
Emergency Contact Details: 000 (Standard Emergnecy Services Number) 112 (GSM or GSM derived phones) and 106 for those with hearing and/or visual impairments
Driving as a Tourist: You can use your UK driving license for up to three months in Australia, after that you will need to apply for an Australian driving license.
