Our Verdict

  • Enjoy unlimited cover on overseas medical expenses and trip cancellation costs when you choose a single or group policy with AAMI travel insurance.
  • This brand offers a competitive rate of up to $5,000,000 for personal liability cover. Out of ten brands that our research team compared, this generous limit was second to only World2Care travel insurance.
  • AAMI doesn't provide any cover for coronavirus-related travel expenses, nor does it offer an insurance policy for domestic travellers holidaying in Australia.
