There’s one thing our travelers all say they want more of… more time. More time planning their trip, more time at their destinations and much more time relaxing and enjoying their adventure.

No one tells us they want to spend their precious time sorting out travel insurance, but they know it’s a ‘must have’, whether they be a backpacker, long term traveler or gap student.

Online Travel Insurance

All we need is some basic information on who you are, where you’re going and how long you’ll be gone for and we’ll generate your instant quote outlining your travel insurance coverage and limitations.

To give you certainty of coverage and confidence in traveling, we’ve made sure all our online travel insurance options include:

  1. Medical
  2. Cancellation
  3. Luggage cover
  4. 24/7 worldwide assistance

We’ve also designed it in an easy-to-understand format, clearly outlining the Standard and Explorer levels of cover, to help you choose the right travel insurance cover for your break.

What and where you’re covered for is very important to our travelers and if you’re already overseas it’s not too late - you can still purchase online now.

Severed Nerve

While in a restaurant in Saigon, Vietnam I cut my hand on a broken glass door. I was bleeding quite a bit so we went to the hospital that night. The doctor confirmed that I cut a tendon in my hand (thumb) and will need surgery. The following day I went to the hospital and received a tendon repair surgery at HCMC Family Medical Practice.
Claim paid: USD $2376.75
