If you’re an Australian resident travelling overseas and you forgot to take out travel insurance before you left, you’re not the first!

  • Already overseas after having departed Australia without taking out travel insurance, or;
  • Already overseas after having departed Australia with travel insurance that has now expired, or;
  • Based overseas and are returning back home to Australia

What You'll be Covered For

Taking out cover when you’re already overseas will not affect your amount of coverage or the levels of cover available to you. You still have the same full features and inclusions in your plan, and will be covered for a range of situations that can happen to you while you’re travelling.

No matter how far into your trip you are when you take out travel insurance for Australians overseas, you will be automatically covered after a 48 hour waiting period for the following things:

Medical Expenses and Emergencies

Our Medical Emergency Service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year to ensure all your medical emergencies are seen to quickly and appropriately.

This Assistance Service will help you with paying medical and hospital bills, rescheduling travel plans, returning you to your home country or another appropriate medical facility if required, and arranging for a family member or friend to come and stay with you.

Travel Delays and Missed Departures

We’ll cover any additional travel and accommodation expenses required to reach your destination when you’re delayed or miss your connecting flight due to certain circumstances.

Cancellation Fees and Lost Deposits

If you have to cancel or cut short your trip for certain reasons such as illness, injury, pregnancy, redundancy, an accident or death, we will cover any non-refundable expenses for prepaid travel and accommodation.

Luggage and Personal Belongings

We offer varying levels of cover for loss, theft or damage to your luggage, valuables and personal belongings. This includes important travel documents such as your passport, tickets and visas, and your personal money. You can choose appropriate cover to align with the value of your belongings and how much you are bringing with you.

Terrorism and Catastrophes

At Insure4Less we are proud to also include cover for natural disasters, terrorism, epidemics and pandemics. Your personal security is highly important to us, and if your trip is directly affected by a catastrophe then your travel insurance for Australians already overseas will cover any additional travel and accommodation expenses and if necessary, the cost of returning home.

Cruises

Cruise holidays are automatically given the same amount of cover and financial protection as any other overseas holiday. Travelling on a domestic cruise on Australian waters? Simply select your area of travel as ‘Pacific including New Zealand, Fiji and Bali’ to receive your cover.

Snow Sports and Recreational Activities

Our travel insurance plans include cover for a wide range of sports and activities from bungee jumping and tandem parachuting to scuba diving and kayaking. There’s even a snow sports option! View our full list to see what’s included.

And more!

If you’re already overseas when you take out a travel insurance policy, depending on which plan you select, you will still be covered for a number of additional things such as car rental excess, personal liability, legal advice and expenses, travel carrier insolvency, search and rescue expenses, accidental death and permanent disability, abandonment of trip, and much more.

Please select the date that you plan to return back into Australia or if you are on a one way trip - the date that you will arrive in your final destination.

Cover End Date

Travellers planning to stay in the United States (not Canada) for 365 days or more: Following recent healthcare reforms in the United States we are unable to insure travellers who are planning to be in the United States (not Canada) for 365 days or more.

Cover End Date

 

Will you be travelling to countries outside of the USA & Canada?

If you plan to visit the USA or Canada more than once during your trip, please calculate the total number of days you will be there. Then enter the date leaving USA or Canada as the total number of days from the date arriving.

For example: You will be in the US from 1st March to 31st March (31 days) and 10th October to 26th October (17 days) = 48 days in total. So you would have a start date of 1st March and an end date of 17th April. Ie 48 days. You will receive your certificate in an email, so simply reply to the email advising the correct dates of travel within USA or Canada and we will endorse the policy accordingly.
