Heading away on holiday should be a relaxing, stress-free time for everybody involved, so why risk the worry of an unexpected medical issue or other travel hiccup?
Whether you're just taking a quick trip over state lines or heading out of Australia, comprehensive domestic and international travel insurance give you added piece of mind in case of a loss-causing event.
For those who are already full members of an Australian health insurance fund, it wouldn't make much sense to head off overseas without preparing similar health cover for while you're away.
A comprehensive travel insurance policy provides cover you for any unexpected international medical and hospital expenses. In addition you can benefit from reimbursement for financial losses caused by loss of luggage or cancelled flights – including if you are the one who has to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances.
If you’re planning a holiday in the future, talk to HICA for your travel insurance needs.
