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 to New York for a long business trip or you're zooming up the coast on a mini staycation, we offer cover for overseas and domestic trips to over 150 countries.

We offer four different types of insurance plans, suitable for all kinds of travellers and budgets. The Annual Multi-Trip plan is perfect for frequent flyers, while budget travel insurance is better for those travelling on a shoestring.

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."
