How Do I Get Travel Insurance?

  • Travel insurance is sold by travel agents or bought on-line.
  • If you purchase your airline ticket or holiday package through a travel agent, they will encourage you to take out travel insurance from an insurer they have a relationship with.
  • However, some travel agents don’t know much about travel insurance and simply give you a glossy brochure.
  • Alternatively, you can:
    • Check travel policies on-line;
    • Apply to insurance companies direct by telephone;
    • Contact an insurance broker to try to get you the best deal;
    • Get travel insurance from your credit card, union, bank or even your superannuation fund.
  • If you apply to an insurance company for cover and get knocked back that will count against you in applying to other insurers.
