Where are you going?
Enter the destination(s) you plan to visit or select them from the list of countries and regions in the dropdown.
Planning a stopover? If you’re in a country for less than 72 hours, you do not need to list it as a destination.
Don’t currently know all the countries you’ll be visiting? You can select a region to obtain cover for all countries within that region, or you can select “Anywhere in the world”. Important: If selecting “Anywhere in the world”, your policy will not provide cover for claims arising in countries that are subject to sanctions. Your safety is paramount, so please read and familiarise yourself with the “Standing Travel Alert for High Risk and Sanctioned Countries” when undertaking worldwide travel – and before making any side trips to neighbouring countries – to ensure you have adequate cover.
Going on a cruise? If your cruise is in inland Australia (e.g. on the Murray River) or in Australian coastal water (e.g. the Kimberley), enter or select “Australia”. If your cruise embarks and disembarks from Australia ports only without any stopover at a port outside of Australia (e.g. a “Sampler Cruise” or cruise from Sydney to Brisbane), enter or select “Domestic Cruise”. If your cruise is overseas (e.g. a European river cruise, a Caribbean cruise, or a cruise from Sydney to Hong Kong), enter or select the country or region you will spend the most time in during your trip.
Want to come to Australia on our Inbound Plan? Select “Australia Inbound”.
When do you depart?
Enter the date you will leave your home to start your trip.
When do you return?
Enter the date you will arrive home based on AEST (considering any time differences/zones and travel times).
Duration of each trip?
Select the maximum trip duration that best suits your needs.
The maximum trip duration you select will apply to each separate trip you take during the 12-month period of your policy.
For cover to apply, you cannot take trips that exceed this maximum duration. If you make a claim related to a trip that exceeds this maximum duration, it may be declined.
The maximum trip duration you select will be shown on your Certificate of Insurance.
Age of each traveller?
Enter the age (as of today) of each adult and child to be included on the policy.
Protect your overseas trip with international travel insurance
Planning an overseas trip? Don’t forget to pack an important item that can help if things go pear shaped while you’re travelling abroad – an international travel insurance policy.
At Cover-More, we provide Australian residents with travel insurance for international trips to help protect against an array of unforeseen complications – from unexpected injury or illness to travel delays, lost luggage, and more.
Whether you are a frequent traveller, seeking the most comprehensive cover or on a budget, you can compare our plans to find the best international travel insurance for you. After all, taking out a policy could save you and your family on overseas medical bills, emergency evacuation costs and/or other unforeseen expenses.
International travel is any travel that takes you out of Australia. This could be for work, a personal holiday, or to visit relatives who live overseas.
It might be an island escape to Fiji, a snowboarding trip to Japan, a backpacking trip through Europe, or a cruise in the South Pacific. Whether you’re taking a short trip or are travelling for an extended period, protecting your trip with international travel insurance for Australians is important.
Why do I need international travel insurance?
It’s important to consider protecting your trip abroad with the right level of travel insurance for you.
From minor mishaps to major emergencies, international travel insurance may help offer financial protection when things go wrong – and could even help get you back home if need be.
Worldwide travel insurance can provide cover for incidents such as:
Overseas emergency medical and dental costs – which can be extremely expensive in many countries
If your luggage is lost, stolen, or delayed
Missed flight connections or travel delays
With international travel insurance you can worry less and travel more, knowing you’ve got protection if something goes wrong.

Why should I consider Cover-More travel insurance?
At Cover-More, we encourage all international travellers to consider taking out worldwide travel insurance as part of their holiday preparation – because you never know what might happen while you’re away.
Our customer Katie-Anne was involved in a car accident while on a trip in the United States of America. Our Cover-More team was there to help in her time of need – liaising with medical staff, paying for hospital bills, and making sure that Katie-Anne and her partner Jacob had the emotional support they needed. We also paid Katie-Anne's overseas medical expenses claim, which ended up totalling over $900,000.
Watch as she shares her heartfelt story:
