Travel Insurance for the UK

Before you go on your trip, consider travel insurance cover here.

Why should I consider travel insurance in the UK?

Rich history, beautiful countryside and world-famous pubs. It’s little wonder why Aussies love heading over to the UK for everything from a short holiday to extended working holidays. However, with flight cancellations to stolen luggage and even being made to drink warm ale, there’s a lot that wrong on a holiday to the UK. Luckily, we’ve got travel insurance cover available for your trip to the UK.

UK travel insurance FAQs

Do I need a visa to travel to the UK?

If you’re travelling for less than six months as a tourist then no, you generally don't need a visa. Just keep in mind that UK authorities can refuse you visa-free entry if they suspect you are travelling for reasons other than tourism.
If you plan on travelling to the UK for longer than six months – to work, volunteer or get married – you will need to apply for a visa. Applications can be made here.

Am I covered under the Reciprocal Healthcare Agreement?
