Travel Insurance Information

We highly recommend that you purchase domestic travel insurance for travel within Australia (for Australian residents) and New Zealand (for New Zealand residents). A basic cancellation plan usually protects you against the loss of pre-paid deposits and cancellation fees if you cancel the travel because you or someone close to you falls sick. A comprehensive plan covers cancellations, lost, stolen or damaged luggage, travel delay, rental car excess if the car is stolen or damaged, and additional travel and accommodation expenses if someone is sick or hurt.

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:
