Travel Insurance Tips

Travel insurance covers the policyholder for insurable events that may occur before or during travel, such as trip cancellation/interruption, medical expenses, baggage damage/theft and more.

Regardless of whether you travel overseas regularly, infrequently or on a once-in-a-lifetime trip, travel insurance is very important.

The cost of travel insurance is based on the type of cover requested, the age of the insured, the destination of travel, length of stay and any pre-existing medical conditions. It is important to obtain the right type of travel insurance to suit your individual requirements.

Important points to note when choosing travel insurance:

  • Always read the product disclosure statement and ensure that you understand exactly what your travel insurance covers. Travel insurance is not unlimited. It may not cover you for cancellation or change to travel plans.
  • Clarify any policy issues directly with the insurer.
  • Ensure that medical cover is adequate for possible expenses in the country you are going to visit. In some parts of the world medical costs can be very expensive.
  • Ensure you declare any pre-existing medical conditions you may have.
  • Generally, cover for luggage and personal belongings is limited and expensive items such as cameras, laptops and/or jewellery may have a per-item limit.

The situation in Afghanistan remains highly volatile.

Limited flights from Afghanistan to other countries have resumed, but these may change or be suspended at short notice. You should contact airlines or travel agents directly for current information. DFAT doesn't provide information on the safety of individual commercial airlines or flight paths.

Travel throughout Afghanistan is extremely dangerous. Violent incidents could occur across the country. Some land borders are closed to travellers seeking to cross from Afghanistan and some border crossing points that are open are at risk of terrorist attack. You need to carefully consider the risks should you attempt to leave by any route. The Australian Government can't offer advice on the safety of travelling to departure points. Any travel options you pursue are taken at your own risk. You’re responsible for your own safety and that of your family. Take all extra precautions for your safety. Stay in a safe place. Make contingency plans to leave when it’s safe to do so.

Our ability to provide consular assistance to Australians in Afghanistan is severely limited. Australians in need of consular assistance should contact the Australian Government 24-hour Consular Emergency Centre on 1300 555 135 in Australia or +61 2 6261 3305 outside Australia.
