When should I buy travel insurance?

When should you buy travel insurance? The short answer is whenever you want! As long as you have purchased your insurance before you depart Australia, that’s all that matters.

Travellers often finalise their insurance in the days before they leave but it’s different for everyone. If you’re looking for the ideal time, a good rule of thumb is to make your selection and purchase as soon as you have booked your flights. There’s no point doing it earlier. Confirmation of your flights is like a green light for the rest of your travel plans; it’s the go-ahead to get cracking on all the little details.

When selecting a coverage option it’s important to consider all the elements and situations you think you may encounter. Now that’s not to say that you won’t be improvising when you’re overseas, we want you to explore and get off the beaten track; it’s just very important that you have a rough idea of your plans.

Having a rough idea will give you the most assurance in selecting the right plan and having all of your bases covered. We have a variety of options and plans for you to choose from, with all areas of activity covered. Whether you’re after a casual stroll or extreme adrenalin rush, we can offer you reliable assistance and peace of mind to take the stress out of the unknown.

It’s great to have the mindset of ‘which one do I need?’ rather than ‘do I even need this?’ We’re travellers at heart and we want to share our passion for adventure with you.

Once you know which insurance you need, it’s an easy process towards confirmation - and then you’re free to set off and explore! Many people look for the cheapest deal, but you can’t really put a price on your safety and wellbeing, can you?

Our website has all the information you need to make an educated decision, and with a range of easy to navigate plans you’re sure to find one that suits your needs. The sooner you book your flights and confirm your insurance, the sooner you can start counting down the days!
