Unlike most others, Travel Insurance Australia does not JUST sell travel insurance to you, we are a company whose staff have travelled to many of the destinations you are going to.

We have travelled extensively to the USA (Most of the West Coast, Las Vegas, Reno, New York, New Orleans, Washington DC, Boston, New Mexico, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Arizona, Texas), Canada (Niagara Falls, Toronto, Montreal) and Mexico (Tijuana) and know from personal experience how expensive medical bills can be. 

We have visited Japan (the unforgettable Hiroshima Museum & Himeji Castle), South Korea (the Blue House), Hong Kong, Macau (the Las Vegas of Asia, China (the Forbidden city and the Great Wall), Taiwan (Chiang Kai Shek Mauseoleum) , Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur), Vietnam (Halong Bay, Hanoi, Hue, Da Nang, Hoi An Ho Chi Minh City), Thailand (the Bangkok Water markets) and Singapore and we have seen what a poor choice in street vendor food purchases can result in.  We have had the experience of calling a doctor to a hotel due to that one bad buy.  The issues in Bali with drinks is another unexpected issue which good insurance covers.

We have cruised the Pacific visiting Noumea, Fiji and Vanuatu, and cruised the Mediterranean visiting Italy, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, France, Spain and Morocco, so we know about where things can go wrong and if they did how we would be spared the concerns if things went wrong.

We have visited, PNG, New Zealand, Cook Islands and Tonga in our part of the world as well as Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and the UK.  We know about reciprocal health agreements and the things that does NOT cover.

With all this we still have not been to Bali or Mauritius and we still dream of getting to Cuba, and South America in general.

Throughout our travels we cover ourselves with the policies that we sell you, good quality travel insurance, and we will be adding links to travel suppliers we issue ourselves, because if they are good enough for us, we should tell you about them and give you more options to make your dollar go further.
