In Australia, an amazing holiday can be found closer than many think. Australia is a big and diverse country with a wide range of sights and experiences to offer. From an endless coastline to seaside resorts, misty mountain retreats, expansive national parks, snow fields and wine growing regions, there’s so much to see here. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), more than 65 million overnight trips are being made by Australians every year.
Whether you plan to travel to see the Blue Mountains, get a taste of Tasmania or dive at the Great Barrier Reef, you should make sure you have domestic travel insurance to provide protection for you and your family specifically for the trip.

What does domestic cover include?
As you’ll be travelling in Australia, your health expenses are already covered by Medicare and/or your private health insurance.
However, even if you’re just holidaying within Australia, there are things can go wrong other than injuries or sickness and it’s better to be prepared for any unexpected situations which could turn a fantastic holiday into a not so fantastic one.
Domestic insurance policies include the benefits that are important to travellers. Our travel insurance provides covers for you in many important areas including:
- Cancellation of your holiday due to unexpected illness and the resultant lost deposits
- Expenses incurred if your travel companion is sick or injured
- Expenses incurred if your trip is delayed
- Skiing and snowboarding
- Loss, theft or accidental damage of luggage and personal items
- Rental car excess for when you hire a car
- Personal liability claims
- Accidental death
