If you’re planning on visiting Australia, travel insurance will cover you for things like medical care, trip cancellation and lost luggage.

Single-trip or annual cover?

Whether to take out a single-trip policy or annual multi-trip cover depends on how many holidays abroad you’re planning in the next 12 months.

If you’re going on holiday more than once, multi-trip might be cheaper. But if Australia’s your only trip abroad this year, a single-trip policy will cost you less.

  1. Natural disasters

    Bushfires are a risk at the height of the Australian summer (November to February). You can find bushfire information on MyFireWatch. Tropical Cyclones are also a threat in some parts of Australia, mainly Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia.

  2. Wildlife

    Australia is home to some of the world’s most dangerous wildlife including spiders, snakes and crocodiles. Medical cover on your travel insurance will cover you for treatment for a bite or sting. If you’re not covered under the reciprocal healthcare arrangements which exist between Australia and the UK, the cost of treatment can be high.
