Australian seniors are travelling more and need the best travel insurance they can find. Travel Insurance Direct helps provide peace of mind through travel insurance you can trust.

Cover is offered for people under the age of 81 on The Works and Domestic* plans and under the age of 76 on The Basics and Annual Multi Trip plans. 

Our health is often more at risk when we travel, especially in less developed countries with poor quality drinking water and unfamiliar foods. Overseas climates can be quite different too, especially if you’re travelling to the northern hemisphere and going from summer to winter or vice versa.

A few countries have Reciprocal Health Care Agreements with Australia, which means Australian seniors get free limited health care. But for most countries, health care costs definitely aren't free and can be really expensive, which means if you need a doctor, a dentist, an ambulance or even hospital, unless you have travel insurance, you’ll have to pay out of your own pocket.

Why is seniors travel insurance so cheap compared to policies offered by travel agents? Well, travel agents put a lot of effort into trying to sell you travel insurance because they get paid ridiculous commissions of up to 50% of the policy price, and they make a lot of their money from it! When you’ve just spent thousands from your hard earned savings for tickets, hotels, car hire and everything else, they figure a few hundred more for travel insurance won't feel like much.

*Under the Private Health Insurance Act 2007 we are unable to cover medical expenses incurred in Australia.
