Woolworths Comprehensive Travel Insurance provides the highest level of cover for overseas travellers who want to spare no expense.
When you travel, you become more aware of yourself and your surroundings, and will often take greater care in situations that you wouldn’t give a second thought to at home. For example, if you’re eating in a restaurant while travelling, you will more likely keep your bag on the table or in your lap, rather than casually slung over the back of the chair. If you are leaving your hotel room you may hide your cash and travel documents or take them with you, while at home you wouldn’t give that sort of thing a second thought.
While we all take extra care when travelling and we don’t intend to invite trouble or danger, these things can still find us. If you don’t want to take any chances the next time you travel, you will want to consider Woolworths Comprehensive Travel Insurance cover.
