Why do I need travel insurance in Europe?

Rich history, amazing scenery and glorious food are just some of the reasons why Europe is a must-do for travellers. However, with snow storms, terrorist attacks and fast-fingered pickpockets keen to get their hands on your fancy new smartphone, there are a lot of 'what ifs' to consider for a holiday to Europe. We offer cover with travel insurance for Europe. You can choose cover for either one or two countries on one policy, or if you are travelling to multiple countries within Europe, select 'Europe' as your destination when you get a quote.

Can I drive during my trip?

Yes, you can - given you have a valid Australian driver's license of course. Driving is one of the best ways to get around Europe, especially in between countries.
