Travel Insurance

We highly recommend that you purchase domestic travel insurance for travel within Australia. A basic cancellation plan protects you against the loss of pre-paid deposits and cancellation fees. A comprehensive plan covers travel delays, trip cancellation or amendments, lost luggage and travel documents, rental car insurance excess, loss of income and personal liability. Australian domestic travel insurance providers do not provide cover for medical and hospital, and evacuation expenses.

Each travel insurance provider provides a different domestic travel insurance plan. Ensure you read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) to ensure you know what is, and what is not covered, and the level of cover offered, when selecting an insurance provider.

Warning: Given the evolving COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, and its unprecedented impact across the world, Columbus Direct have made the difficult decision to suspend sales of their travel insurance products at this time.

If you already have a Columbus Direct policy, this won’t affect you.  Your cover remains in place. Please visit the below links for more information:
