Most people don’t think about travel insurance for their domestic trips. After all, Medicare works all over Australia, right? And that’s true, it does. But what about the other things travel insurance can cover? Luggage, rental car excess, cancelled accommodation, weather events? That’s where a domestic insurance policy comes in. In a country that gets more than its fair share of natural disasters and wild weather events, you need to be covered for that. Buying a policy for a long weekend or just a week might seem weird, but it'll be worth it – especially if you're flying or renting a car. Plus, it’s really not that expensive!
