Travel with Kit
Travel with Kit travel insurance focuses on flexibility which means you pay for the benefits most important to you.
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
Travel with Kit is an Australian-owned brand that caters to a whole bunch of travellers by allowing you to buy the cover you need. You can customise your policy by selecting a plan and adding any additional cover you might need, such as water sports activities or expensive items such as cameras or surfboards.
