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

    Boomers travel insurance is designed to cover travellers young at heart. They offer policies with no age limits, online medical screening for pre-existing conditions, free cover for dependents up to 25 years old and a range of optional extras for your trip.

    Boomers travel insurance is not currently available via finder. You can visit their website at www.boomerstravelinsurance.com.au 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.
