What you need to know:
The particular meanings of ‘Departure’ and ‘Return’ don’t necessarily mean your actual departure and return dates for airfares, but actually, they indicate the periods of your valid insurance.
One major exclusion that you need to be aware of is that any traveller is required to depart from Australia. You are UNABLE
to take out a travel insurance
policy once already overseas.
Don’t travel uninsured, even if you don’t expect to return to Australia
anytime soon, be sure to extend your policy accordingly and be prepared for the unexpected. It is better to be safe than sorry. Travel Insurance Saver can provide you with the right insurance for the right trip!
All policies can be extended up to 365 days as long as you don't let the policy expire.
Once your overseas
you can extend and amend
your policy, so if you’re unsure of your return date, never fear! Once you’re over there you can edit your policy as you see fit.
Just because you don’t know your return date doesn’t mean you should go without travel insurance, you should always purchase travel insurance if you’re travelling in a foreign country – especially if you don’t think you can afford it.
If you don’t think you can afford travel insurance, then you’re exactly the kind of person who should have travel insurance! Uninsured medical fees in foreign hospitals can be absurdly expensive. Don’t be that person hobbling around with a bloodied makeshift bandage around their foot because they injured themselves, but they don’t want to go to a hospital because they can’t afford it.
If you’re a young person you can purchase a bare essentials policy for the cost of a night out, and this will cover you for all things medical
, lost luggage and for cancellation
. It’s definitely worth-while.
Important: Ensure that you extend your policy before it expires, or you will be unable to continue further.
