While you never hope to need it, travel insurance can offer peace of mind when travelling overseas and within Australia. Your policy could end up saving you tens of thousands of dollars if the worst were to happen, which helps make your travel insurance worth it.
Cover-More customers Katie-Anne and Jacob racked up medical bills of $900,000when they had a car accident in California. Luckily, their policy covered these expenses so they could focus on what mattered – recovering.
Could you afford to keep travelling without travel insurance if this happened to you?
Unforeseen illnesses, natural disasters and accidents can derail a well-planned holiday at any moment. It’s important to have a travel insurance policy that can protect you from the financial burden if something unfortunate happens.
According to DFAT, the short answer is yes. Things might not go to plan while you’re travelling, unforeseen expenses can quickly add up while you’re overseas, and nothing will dampen a holiday faster than out-of-pocket bills.
One of the most important benefits of comprehensive travel insurance is that it can help protect your financial future against unexpected expenses that arise. Remember the Australian Government will not assist in paying for your medical bills overseas. If you don't have travel insurance, you and your family may have to carry the cost.
