Online Travel Insurance for Australiaonline travel insurance for australia

Travel insurance in Australia is highly recommended !

Travel insurance is an essential part of your planning, and thanks to the internet where travel insurance companies can sell their policies online and have less overheads in staffing offices it becomes more and more affordable too.
Nowadays it is a must to have a good travel insurance, even the cost of minor accidents can quickly run into thousands the way doctors and hospitals charge, and there is always the chance of losing baggage, missed flight connections or going for a swim with your camera, not to mention getting sick due to different climate and circumstances from back home.
Don't think can I afford to have travel insurance? Think can I afford NOT to have travel insurance !

Also note that many hire car companies charge your hefty daily fees of up to $15.- a day to buy out the excess on the car insurance, if you have a good policy your travel insurance will cover this anyway, so you don't need that extra cover and your travel insurance will pay for itself with this saving.
Consider the fact that your bags could disappear during your flight, the 2010 Air Transport Industry Baggage Report which shows that globally 25 million bags a year go missing so 1% of airline passengers will find their luggage hasn't made it to their destination. Not all airlines compensate you for this, but a good travel insurance will
You might think that when flights are delayed or cancelled the airline will look after you but this is not always the case.
Recently I found myself in the situation where Thai Airways cancelled a flight to Bangkok, leaving me stuck in Brisbane.
On previous occasions on other airlines I have always been provided with accommodation if there were delays or cancellations, but Thai Airways denied any requests for accommodation or reimbursements of extra costs, so I would suggest to steer clear of them.
And as a final example of why you should always have a good travel insurance that will cover all eventualities; look at Aussie couple John Kan and Rachel Evans that went on holidays to Canada. Rachel unexpectedly gave birth to a premature baby that had to stay in the neo-natal ward for three months. They left Canada with a one million dollar bill, which they are paying off at $300 a week. They still have 278 years to go at present....

Some of the online travel insurance policies available on the web are restricted to certain nationalities, but WorldNomads insures virtually all nationalities of travellers and you can make your claim or extend online while you're still on the road !

When traveling to Australia, it’s important to look at all types of insurance you might need. The costs of owning a yacht or a home in Australia is also affected by insurance and can change depending on if you’re near the coast.
