Travel insurance

Australians are travellers. In fact, we're among the busiest jet-setters in the world - and the 9th largest travel spenders. The proof is in the numbers:

  • Australians spent a total of $116.7 billion on travel in 2015. That's almost 10 percent more than the previous year.
  • Of that total, $78.5 billion was spent on domestic trips alone.
  • The number of trips taken by Australians has increased by 8 percent in recent years.

That means for every 100 people, 42 trips are taken!

But many Australians travel without insurance...

Despite a high propensity to travel, more than 3/4 million Australians travel without insurance every year. And that's bad. Travelling, whether for business or pleasure, is exciting - but it's not without its risks.
