Why Get Travel Insurance?

Friends laughing. There are many reasons to get travel insurance for your trip.

Imagine having to blow your study fund on $50,000 of overseas medical bills. Or doing even more shifts to replace your stolen laptop. Staying in for a year to pay off a $3,000 hire car bill. You’d kick yourself.

We know you want to save every dollar.  But without the right travel insurance, you risk losing all your savings on your first big trip.

The cost of medical care overseas may be significant – sometimes as much as $100,000 for a hospital stay. And your private health insurance doesn’t cover you.

Travel insurance is there to provide cover for you in case you get hurt or sick or lose your stuff while you’re away from home (depending on the level of cover chosen). It may also cover damage to a hire car or van, even if you’re under 25.
