Domestic Travel Insurance
We have three Domestic options available. Choose from a Comprehensive Domestic plan, Domestic Cancellation Plan or cover for Rental Car insurance excess.
Domestic travel insurance provides cover for persons travelling in Australia only. Note that this does not include any medical or hospital cover, it covers you largely for your luggage and the risk of cancellation or disruption of travel. Cover applies from when you leave your home to go directly to the place you depart from your travels, and ends when you return to your home.
The cover for cancellation fees and lost deposits begins from the time the travel insurance policy is issued.
