What does Domestic Plus travel insurance include?
As you’ll be travelling within Australia, your health expenses are already covered by Medicare or your private health insurance.
However, there are still things that can go wrong other than injuries or sickness, and it’s better to be prepared for any unexpected situations which could turn a dream holiday Down Under into a nightmare.
Our Domestic Plus policy comes with a wide range of benefits so you can embrace the opportunities that are available to you when travelling around Australia including skiing, hiking, diving and driving!
It has all the inclusions we think you might need, such as:
- Cover for cancellation of your holiday due to an unexpected illness or injury
- Expenses incurred if your travel companion is sick or injured
- Expenses incurred if your trip is delayed or you miss a connecting flight
- Cover for skiing and snowboarding
- Cover for the loss, theft or accidental damage of luggage and personal items
- Cover for the Rental Vehicle Excess if you're hiring a car or campervan
- Personal liability insurance
- Accidental death insurance
The Domestic Plus policy can also be further tailored to suit your trip with optional add-ons like the Adventure Pack and High Value Item cover.
