Australians made a record 8.4 million trips overseas in 2012-13 according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS media release dated 2 August 2013). Whether you were one, or you had family or friends traveling, we all know that there are few things more upsetting to your holiday or business trip than losing luggage, having items stolen or worse still, dealing with an unexpected medical emergency let alone the expense that goes with it.
We would prefer you to be one of those people who say: "Thank goodness I had travel insurance!"
The great thing is that travel insurance doesn't have to cost a lot. Quite frankly it is affordable peace of mind when you are on holiday.
