Africa travel insurance FAQs

Is it safe to travel to Africa?

We always advise you check with Smartraveller to see how safe or unsafe a country or a region is before travelling. Whilst crime targeting tourists does exist in Africa for the most part smartraveller issues a green light to the main tourist destinations such as South Africa and Botswana and North African nations such as Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt. Keep in mind we will not cover you under any event in any section of the policy if you travel to a country or region which the Australian government has issued a 'Do Not Travel' warning. The latest travel advice can be found here.

Am I covered if I get sick in Africa?

We can offer cover for emergency medical expenses incurred overseas after a sudden illness or serious injury. If you become unwell during your holiday make sure you contact TIDs 24/7 Emergency Assistance team as soon as possible and they will coordinate your care at the best medical facilities on the ground in Africa.
