Domestic Travel Tips

Cancellation cover
Cancellation cover
Your policy limit for “Cancellation or holiday deferment costs” must be chosen at the time of purchase. You can vary the maximum trip cancellation limit at the time you purchase your policy, and you will be advised of any change in premium.
Travelling with Valuables
Travelling with Valuables
Always be sure to take all reasonable precautions to safeguard all your luggage and personal effects. For example, don't leave them unsupervised in a public place, nor leave them behind or walk away from them.

In instances like this, you can make a claim, but it is highly likely that it would not be approved.

FAQs about Domestic Travel Insurance

I’m not hiring a car, will domestic insurance cover me to drive my own car?
No, unfortunately we can’t cover your car (you’ll need car insurance for that). However, if your travel arrangements are cancelled delayed by a motor vehicle accident, we can cover costs of unused accommodation.
Why are medical expenses not covered in the domestic policy?
Travel Insurance can only cover you for medical expenses incurred overseas. Medical costs in Australia can be covered by Medicare or your private health insurer.
Is there a minimum distance I have to travel away from home to be eligible for domestic cover?
There is no minimum distance on the Australian Travel Plan or Cancellation and Additional Expenses Plan. The trip must start and/or end at your home in Australia during the period of insurance.
