Who should buy travel insurance?

You can purchse travel insurance if:

  • You currently reside in Australia 
  • You hold a valid Australian Medicare card (if you are a temporary visitor, then you must be covered in Australia by a private health insurance policy that satisfies the Australian government health insurance requirements for your visa type); 
  • You purchase your policy before you commence your trip or you satisfy all of the requirements for purchasing a policy while you are already overseas; 
  • For temporary visitors, your visa remains valid beyond the period of your return; and 
  • Your trip starts and ends in Australia; and 
  • You are aged 89 years and under. 

For temporary residents of Australia, cover is available, however, only if: 

  • You are a non-permanent resident who holds a valid Medicare card or are covered by an Australian Private Health Insurance policy that satisfies the government health insurance requirements for your visa type; and 
  • You have a home in Australia to which you intend to return; and 
  • Your trip starts and ends in Australia; and 
  • You hold a return ticket to Australia; and 
  • You are aged 89 years and under.

For all travellers on this policy: 

  • In the event of a medical repatriation from overseas, we will return you to Australia. 
  • Medical expenses incurred once you have returned to Australia are not covered on this policy. 
  • It is therefore important that you ensure you have access to long term medical care in Australia

Cover is subject to the policy terms, conditions, limits and exclusions in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).
