International travel insurance options

Whether it’s for business or pleasure, you want your international travel to go smoothly.

The risks of travelling overseas without travel insurance are high. And you don’t have to be a risk-taker to come a cropper overseas. Accidents and medical emergencies can happen to anyone, at any time, and the costs can very quickly sky-rocket.

Check out this case of a woman travelling in the USA - she tripped walking down stairs and broke her ankle. She racked up medical expenses and other costs relating to the accident totalling $75,000(1). With Defence Health travel insurance, the entire cost was covered from just $12 a day(2). 

Remember, from the moment you leave Australia you’re on your own. Medicare and private health insurance cannot cover you outside of Australia. Without travel insurance you may be personally responsible for any overseas medical bills, lost or stolen luggage, cancelled flights or additional accommodation costs. Defence Health Travel Insurance can cover you.
