It is worth noting that there are many online travel booking sites that may act as a referrer or distribution channel for a specific insurer. Insurance is a financial services product and most of these booking sites are not licenced to give financial advice. They cannot give advice about any of the products, and any factual information provided is not intended to imply a recommendation or opinion. The good news is, we are licenced to provide you with general advice on travel insurance and hope to make your online purchase decision easier.
After all, the value of an insurance policy is in the promise that you will be covered if something goes wrong. We don't allow online purchases through our site and direct you to the insurer to ensure that you are eligible for the cover and can feel confident that you will be looked after in times of need.

You get to save time, worry and loads of money that's what! A comparison lets you compare a range of quotes online from a bunch of top Aussie insurers in one handy place.
We’ve all heard the horror travel stories. Bag snatching monkeys, dodgy prawns, broken bones on ski slopes (ouch). Worse still injuries or illnesses that see holidaymakers trying to negotiate their way through a medical system in a foreign country. No thanks! Wise up you’d be mad not to take out travel insurance for your trip to cover you for a plethora of unexpected incidents!
Which policy is best depends entirely on you and your circumstances. If you're a backpacker on a strict budget, you might want a no frills medical-only policy, while if you've paid a lot in deposits or if you have pre-existing health conditions, a more comprehensive policya might work for you.

Yes, there won't be any differences to the actual insurance that you purchase. Generally speaking the price should be the same whether you purchase over the phone or online unless there is an online special online offer. Some insurers are able to keep their prices lower than others by not having a call centre, for that reason their prices tend to be a little cheaper.
Yes, the prices on our comparison are the exact same as you'll get by going direct. We are paid a small referral fee for each policy we pass on that gets purchased.
