Domestic travel insurance is cover designed for any trip taken around Australia. You might think you don't need insurance because you have Medicare, but travel insurance for Australia can cover you for things that your medical healthcare doesn't. Even if you're not going too far, things can still go wrong on trips close to home.
Buying a policy for a long weekend or just a week might seem weird, but you may want to make sure your well-being and your belongings are protected – especially if you're flying or renting a car.
All the things that can go wrong overseas can still happen at home. Our domestic insurance has many of the same benefits that our other policies cover. Overseas medical bills aren’t covered under our Domestic plan.
If you're thinking of hiring a car and taking an Aussie road trip, our domestic insurance can cover some of the car hire excess if your rental vehicle is damaged or stolen.
While Medicare covers hospital stays, doctors' services and outpatient care, the domestic plan also provides cover for medical evacuation by road or air if you need it.
Our Domestic Plan has a reasonable level of cover to make sure you can claim for a number of events when you need to. Each limit has been tailored to the level for a domestic trip and the plan can cover things like lost luggage, travel delay or interruptions to your trip. You can read the details of everything our travel insurance for Australia covers in our PDS.
