You can apply for Inbound Travel Insurance if you are entering Australia on a temporary basis, are under 70 years old and have no pre existing medical conditions. You can purchase your policy before you arrive in Australia, or within seven days of arriving, covering you for your travel around Australia and for your return to your home country.
Easy Travel Insurance Inbound Travel Insurance benefits include:
- You are protected from your own providers. Travel insurance can cover policyholders for lost deposits or cancellation fees your travel agent or carrier charges you if you have to change your travel plans because of illness, accident, injury or family emergency.
- Items can easily be lost, stolen or damaged. Even if you take great care with your luggage and possessions, your carrier may lose your bags, you may turn around at the airport and miss your suitcase, or your concierge may tear open a garment bag getting out of a lift. Any of these instances and more could quickly and easily ruin your holiday, but with travel insurance you can be reimbursed for loss and damage, and be paid a benefit to replace items. You’ll also have all the right contacts if you need to track or replace lost passports or travel documents.
- Delays ruin plans. Your luggage may be delayed and you need essential personal items, your flight or transfer may be delayed so you missed connections. Whatever the reason, the ripple effects of a delay while on holiday anywhere can multiply quickly, which is why travel insurance provides a benefit to replace essential items if your baggage is delayed, and pay additional accommodation and travel expenses if you have to rearrange your plans.
- You can be sick or injured anywhere. Medical emergencies, illness, accidents and injury can happen when you’re tucked up safely in your home, so why would you risk travelling anywhere without accident, injury and medical cover through your travel insurance. Travel insurance can pay emergency medical and dental bills, evacuations, repatriation and the associated travel and accommodation costs for a carer.
