Why do you need Travel Insurance for Australia?

Travel Insurance for Australia offers coverage covers you for unexpected medical bills while you are on holiday and cancellation costs before you go. This type of insurance offers you support for any related unnecessary complications that could arise when you’re on holiday.

It’s time that you travelled with the UK’s most trusted Travel Insurance provider1.

Comprehensive cover when travelling to Australia

From scuba diving to Sydney, Australia has plenty to offer. It tops many people’s travel wish lists as it promises an abundance of once in a lifetime experiences. Whether you’re travelling to the depths of the outback or switching from city to city – it’s essential that you have comprehensive cover.

While UK residents travelling on a British passport are entitled to subsidised health services from  Medicare Australia for emergency medical treatment, it is limited. The scheme does not cover pre-existing conditions or treatment that does not require prompt attention. If you are not eligible for the scheme emergency health care can be expensive, with an air ambulance costing up to $4898AUS and up to $10,475 AUS for a helicopter. While the scheme is useful, you cannot solely rely on it.

When travelling to Australia, it’s also important to consider any cancellation costs you may incur should your long-haul flight get cancelled. With flights to Sydney costing around £638, it’s worth protecting your travel investment.

At AllClear, we have provided specialist medical travel insurance for over 20 years. Our policies include:
