As always, the information in this post is from one traveller to another. We aren't travel insurance agents. We have spent years abroad and have gotten to know the ins and outs of the industry, but if you have any travel insurance questions, please talk to a qualified travel insurance agent or broker. Finally, always consult your insurance policy since that is the legal document to which you are agreeing.

Australia Travel Insurance Review was born when we realized that we couldn’t find good, independent websites that compared travel insurance plans for Australians.

We’re a family of four (Dad, Mom and two kidlets), and whenever we travel, we want to make sure  we’re protected in case of an accident or medical emergency.

We spent hours online comparing Australian travel insurance policies, and trying to find the best deals.

We thought there had to be a better way.

Policies and coverage can change at any time, without warning. This article is only intended as general advice. Please check your own policy carefully.

So, we started Australia Travel Insurance Review site for our fellow travelers.

We don’t sell travel insurance here, and we think that’s a good thing.

There are plenty of websites that will sell you travel insurance, but there really aren’t any that help Aussies understand how to find the right plan for their needs.

Since we don’t work for an insurance company, and we don’t sell insurance, we can give you unbiased reviews and comparisons of Australian travel insurance.

Most importantly, we don’t sell travel insurance on this site. We just provide links to the companies that do.

So whether you’re going on a walkabout in the Outback, exploring the Great Wall of China or hiking the Andes on your gap year, getting travel insurance shouldn’t be what’s holding you back.

Who runs this website?

We’re a family of four (one Mom, one Dad, and two fun littles).

We’ve travelled the world extensively and have spent months at a time touring around Australia in everything from autos to buses to campervans. In short, we’re travellers just like you and definitely not travel insurance agents.

We’ve had a couple of close scares on the road (one in a hospital in Thailand, and one where we rushed our seven year old son to a hospital in Greece). Having good travel insurance was a blessing in those stressful situations!

Thanks from us here at Australia Travel Insurance Review.

Safe travels!
