Please Note - If you are cruising around Australia you need to select Pacific.
With Regions, variances can apply for Bali, Indonesia, Japan and Middle East.
You are not required to enter stop-over countries if your stop-over is less than 48 hours.
With so many different policies, how do you choose the one which is right for you? Although there are many brands, there are only a handful of insurance underwriters in Australia that actually issue and underwrite the policies that you purchase.
If you're struggling to find cover for a particular scenario, you may have success looking at policies from different underwriters rather than comparing several standard policies from the same underwriter. There is likely to be more variance between what's covered and what's not covered between different underwriters or niche brands. Some of Australia's major travel insurance underwriters to look out for include: ACE Insurance Limited, Allianz Australia Insurance Limited, Certain underwriters at LLoyd's and QBE Insurance Limited.
When you take out a policy, you're paying the insurance company and the underwriters a fee to cover your risk. If something goes wrong, you could end up in a world of pain if your policy isn't backed by a reputable underwriter with an experienced claims team. Fortunately, all brands listed on our site are underwritten by reputable insurers. All brands listed offer 24/7 emergency assistance to help you in your time of need. We do our best not to list riff raff!!
But it's important to note that it is not exhaustive. There are plenty of other brands in the market. We don't want to trick you about our service either, so we've marked which travel insurance brands we provide quotes for, and those that we don't. Check out which insurer is behind each policy to help you in your hunt for the best cover for your holiday.
