Domestic Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is not just for overseas journeys, and it's not just about medical cover. Lost luggage, cancellations and hire car excess costs can all leave you unexpectedly out of pocket.

Airlines can lose or damage luggage on domestic flights as well as international ones.

Holiday equipment is expensive to replace if damaged or stolen, for example there's your backpack, tent, fishing gear, ski boots and other equipment. Even replacing your camera, phone, or iPod can be expensive.

Cancellations can also be costly. What if you had planned a Whitsundays honeymoon, but you or a family member became too ill to travel and you had to cancel? Most companies would not refund your deposit or booking fees on flights, accommodation, cruises or transfers.

When you hire a car, do you check the hire car insurance excess? If someone sideswipes your hired campervan, excess payments for damage to the vehicle can be up to $5000, even if it's not your fault.

Although we usually think of travel insurance in terms of international travel, a small premium paid now can cover you for substantial losses even on local domestic trips.

Worldcare's domestic travel insurance product, Australia Only Travel Insurance, provides cover for loss, theft or damage to your luggage or equipment, hire car excesses, and cancellations.
