Why do I need domestic travel insurance for an Australian holiday?

It’s important to consider protecting your Australian holiday with the right level of coverage for you. Domestic travel insurance can help protect you from unexpected events or circumstances that may arise during your trip. It can cover you for things like:

  • Trip cancellations or delays
  • Medical emergencies
  • Lost or stolen luggage
  • Accidental injury or death.

Whatever happens, you want your holiday to go as smoothly as possible. Opting for a domestic travel insurance policy offers financial protection if things go wrong.

How do I know which plan is right for me?

There are a few things to consider when choosing the right domestic travel insurance plan:

  1. Coverage – ensure you tell us about the activities you are participating in. If you are planning to ski, rent a car, or go white-water rafting, for example, you should make sure your policy covers these activities.
  2. Cost – get a quote for a domestic policy that suits your travel requirements and budget.
  3. Exclusions and conditions – take the time to read the fine print. At WAS, we are transparent about what’s covered within your tailored insurance plan.

At WAS, we offer a range of policies to help you choose the right policy for your unique travel needs. Currently, we don't cover domestic travel insurance, but stay tuned for updates!

What’s covered through domestic travel insurance?

Each policy is different, tailored to your travel plans. While we can’t provide a quote for domestic cover today, we plan to add this capability soon, providing cover for a range of possible scenarios during or before your Australian holiday:

  • You get an illness that means you need to cancel your hiking trip to Tasmania
  • An airline loses your baggage on your flight to Sydney
  • Your rental car is written off in a third-party accident in Melbourne
  • You have a nasty fall while skiing near Victoria, cutting short your trip

Domestic insurance could provide financial assistance in these hypotheticals, as well as a number of other unforeseen, unfortunate scenarios.

We intend to add domestic insurance to expand our offering soon. Check back soon to get a quote to cover your domestic travel needs.
