Long Term Travel Insurance
Travelling from Australia overseas for over 365 days and looking for long-term travel insurance that can be extended for a year or more.
2 Years Travel Insurance
You are able to extend the International Comprehensive up until 24 months from Departure.
For instance; if you were travelling to Canada on a working holiday or IEC for 2 years you are required to have 2 years of comprehensive travel insurance including medical and medical evacuation cover. It’s becoming a legal requirement for many countries that inbound travellers who wish to apply for extended stays to have appropriate medical insurance.
The International Comprehensive policy can be purchased for 1 year and then extended immediately afterwards for a further year.

Travelling for as long as I can?
In the case that you are travelling for as long as you can or till your cash runs out, but you don't know how long you will actually be travelling for. Might be 3, 9 or 12months.
With this scenario, it is advised to take out your policy for a duration that you think you will definitely be travelling from Australia overseas. For instance, this might be 5 months. Once you have a better idea, you can extend your policy for the additional duration that you require. You can do this as many times as you like as long as it is up until 12 months for the Bare Essentials, Essentials and up-to 24 months on the International Comprehensive policy.
IMPORTANT: You must always extend your policy before it has expired, make a calendar entry to make sure that you don't need additional cover. If your policy lapse/expires you will NOT be able to take out another policy and you will be required to pay for a new policy which will be a more expensive way of taking out travel insurance.
