Many people forget to buy domestic travel insurance when they travel around Australia, but being covered at home is just as important as being covered overseas.
Australia is one big place and there is just as much to see and do here as there is going abroad. Assuming you're covered by Medicare, you don't need to worry about your health but there are still plenty of good reasons to buy travel insurance for trips around Australia.
Lost luggage, damage to a rental car, flight delays and cancellations and theft are all situations that could quickly put a downer on any domestic holiday.
Think about it, going from one side of Australia to the other is already a 5 hour flight. A flight from Sydney to Perth can cost up to $500 – would you have enough money to pay for another flight if it was cancelled?
You are facing significant financial risk if you decide to travel in Australia without cover.

Are you in favour of a frequent city break? Whether it's Sydney, Adelaide or Perth you might benefit from a multi-trip policy designed for frequent domestic travellers. Whether travelling overseas or within Australia, if you have more than two trips planned within a 12 month period an annual travel insurance policy can be significantly cheaper than purchasing a single trip policy each time you travel.
You wouldn’t travel overseas without cover, so don’t travel around Australia without it either.
