Travelling to Europe? Passport ready? Credit card and money safe? Travel insurance policy sorted? Unfortunately, too many Australians ignore the latter due to financial restrictions or an ‘it will never happen to me’ attitude. This could prove, for some, to be the most costly mistake they will ever make.
It just takes an unexpected accident or eating the wrong food to mean that medical treatment is required. Travellers who are not covered by insurance are personally liable for all medical expenses and associated costs such as medical evacuation and at worst, repatriation back to Australia. With costs potentially in the tens of thousands of dollars for being returned home to Australia, it is easy to see why medical travel insurance is so important.
Travel insurance can cover for events that may occur before travel as well as during a trip to Europe. Cancellation of flights, theft or loss of personal items or valuables, theft or loss of baggage and even baggage delay are all possible events that are covered by a DUInsure travel insurance policy.
Personal liability cover is another benefit offered to our Europe travel insurance policyholders, which covers legal liability for accidental injury to a third party, or damage to or loss of their belongings, caused by you.
