Points to consider before buying travel insurance for Australia

Good Australia travel insurance cover is essential if you are going to work in Australia. This is particularly the case if the work is physical rtaher than office based. Employers will expect that you have travel insurance cover and may well ask you in an interview for evidence of this so make sure you bring your travel policy document along.

You must consider the small print when looking at cover for extreme activities. Whether it be sky diving, bungee jumping, snowboarding or surfing you must make sure your activity is convered by your policy. Many policies have up to four different categories of activities ranging from normal to extreme. This makes Australia travel insurance crucial.
