Get a deal on Domestic travel insurance Australia
Australians rely on the safety net of Medicare and private health insurance when it comes to medical care in Australia. Often, we fail to take out domestic travel insurance cover. We don’t usually think about non-medical issues that can arise when we're travelling domestically.
One of the largest concerns when travelling in Australia is cancellation. Protection against the loss of non-refundable travel expenses is covered with our domestic travel insurance policy.
Our Domestic travel insurance plans cover
Our Domestic travel insurance includes cover for travel cancellation costs, loss of baggage, car hire excess insurance, accidental death and more – plus, it’s suitable for single travellers and families. So you'll be well protected on your next Australian holiday.
When named on the policy, we cover up to three dependent children and up to two dependent infants FREE when they’re travelling with their parent or grandparent (this excludes any optional cover for pre-existing medical conditions).
Hiring a car or campervan? Avoid expensive car hire excess insurance fees
With our domestic travel insurance, up to $5,000 worth of cover are included as standard for your Rental Vehicle Excess; don't forget that car rental companies charge up to 500% more for rental vehicle excess protection than travel insurance. So don't wait until you pick-up your car to sort your car hire excess reduction. Get a quote for domestic travel insurance and enjoy saving on your next Australian road trip.
If you're also planning trips overseas this year...
If you're travelling within Australia and abroad this year, it may be worth considering an Annual Multi-Trip policy. Our Annual travel insurance plans include cover for domestic trips where you're staying in a third party accommodation for at least two nights and your trip destination is at least 500km away from your home.
