Online Travel Insurance:
Why Insure

The answer to this question is simple 'for peace of mind'. Travelling should be an enjoyable and engaging activity. An opportunity to participate in another countries culture and lifestyle, time to excite your nerve endings and involve yourself heart and soul in bold and daring adventures.

However, there is a stark reality to this exciting pastime and that is 'accidents happen'. Below is an excerpt from an independent source that highlights some sobering thoughts.

For most Australians overseas travel is a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, however, every day consular officers of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade at home and overseas deal with human tragedies involving the death, injury or hospitalisation of Australians abroad. Each year the department handles over 20,000 cases involving Australians in difficulty overseas. This includes over 700 hospitalisations, 600 deaths and 100 evacuations of Australians to another location for medical purposes.

In cases where victims are not covered by travel insurance, such personal tragedies are further compounded by a long-term financial burden. Hospitalisation, medical evacuations, or even the return of the deceased's remains to Australia, can be very expensive. Daily hospitalisation costs in Southeast Asia regularly exceed $800; return of remains from Europe in excess of $10,000. The cost of medical evacuations from the United States regularly range from $75,000 to $95,000 and sometimes up to $300,000. The department has handled medical evacuations from nearby Bali in which costs have exceeded $60,000.

Unfortunately, not all of these cases involved travellers covered by travel insurance. Travellers who are not covered by insurance are personally liable for covering incurred medical and associated costs. As a result, we have known instances where families have been forced to sell off assets, including their superannuation or family homes, to bring loved ones back to Australia for treatment.

No-one can prevent accidents and that is why travel insurance is your best friend when going abroad or even when travelling our big brown land.
