Australian Unity Travel Insurance

Australian Unity teams up with WorldCare and Allianz to give you 7 different travel insurance options.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

Important:

Travel insurance rules continue to change as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. We’re working hard to keep up and make sure our guides are up to date, however some information may not be accurate during the pandemic. It’s even more important to double-check all details that matter to you before taking out cover. Please know that some policies may not be available through Finder at this time. Here are some helpful tips:
    • If you're buying a policy today, it's unlikely that you'll be covered for any coronavirus-related claims
    • If your travel plans go against government advice, your policy will most likely be voided and you won't be covered
    With over 175 years of experience, Australian Unity is among the country's oldest mutual companies. They have now partnered up with Worldcare to provide travel insurance.

    You can choose from 7 different policy options, from basic to comprehensive, with higher limits for couples and families. You can also get non-medical, domestic and returning residents cover. Find out more below.

    Australian Unity travel insurance is not currently available through Finder. You can visit their website at www.australianunity.com.au/insurance for more information or compare alternative options available below.

    warning Finally, some good news! Domestic travel is picking up, so some insurers have started offering cover again 🦘
    Just remember, you won't be covered for any pandemic related claims if you do take out domestic travel insurance.
    International travel insurance is limited and sometimes unavailable at this point.

      I wish to speak with someone about travel insurance, I did get a quote for the 3 trips I am taking overseas this year but have mislaid those quotes.
      First trip Prague then Phuket in April, 2nd trip to Canada and USA and third trip Singapore and cruise back to Sydney. I was told you do not do annual policies.
      Could someone ring me about the quotes, perhaps you have them in your system?
      I belong to Australian Unity for health insurance.
      Many thanks
