What is travel insurance?

Buying travel insurance could be the difference between an amazing trip and an awful one. When you buy travel insurance, you're protecting yourself from the financial risks and potential costs if something goes wrong on your trip. While it’s not mandatory, it may be worthwhile for any holiday you take, even if you're just going away for a weekend. Whether you're off on a business trip or you're zooming up the coast on a mini staycation, we offer cover for domestic trips. There are options available if you’re unable to use your policy due to government restrictions.

What can my travel insurance cover?

If you’re taking some time off for a staycation, our Domestic plan protects you for trips within Australia. It can cover you for car hire excess, lost or stolen valuables and cancelled accommodation.

When considering travel insurance, you’ll be keen to know what it covers.

Our Domestic plan offers cover for loads more scenarios like these, including cancellation, luggage and more.

We don't cover everything though, so it's important you understand the policy exclusions and read the policy wording.

Choose a plan that suits your holiday.

Choosing travel insurance can be confusing, so we've made it easy. We have four plans to choose from, each offering a different level of cover. You'll find loads of information about each one, but the plans on offer range from comprehensive to basic, domestic or international as well as single or multiple trips.

Here’s what people are saying about TID...

"I broke my arm while in France. The emergency helpline provided by TID was effective, efficient and clear in their instructions. The claims process when I returned home was rigorous, but really fair. I pushed back regarding the exchange rate they had applied, and with the proof I shared, they increased the amount of the payment."

"My family and I have been using TID for the past 8 years after having it recommended by a friend. I have always had great service and any claims made (both big and small) have been paid out without too much trouble, including a 10 day hospital stay and operation for my daughter while she was travelling in Germany. Any concerns have always been dealt with quickly and easily."

"I have relied on TID travel insurance for over twenty trips in recent years. The policies represent outstanding value, and both the website and the app are seamless. On the one occasion that I had to lodge a claim, the process was prompt and efficient. Far and away the best provider in Australia."
