How to choose travel insurance
Travelling overseas can be a great experience but it pays to be prepared in case things go wrong. Travel insurance can save you from huge, unexpected medical or legal bills. It can also help you replace items that are stolen, or get you home in an emergency such as a tsunami, earthquake or cyclone.
When you’re taking out travel insurance, these questions might help you to choose the right cover.
- Will the policy be recognised worldwide?
- What are the exclusions?
- What if I have a medical condition?
- Does cover include full medical evacuation?
- Do I have enough cover?
- Will the cover last until I get back home?
