Most people would have read about the importance of travel insurance for their international trip, but what about trips within Australia? I took out domestic travel insurance and it came in very handy when my hire car was pelted with hailstones. The rental car excess was huge and I was able to use travel insurance to cover most of the expense of the excess.

  • Thats interesting to know that if you travel often you can also take out annual travel insurance! Great!


  • I buy travel insurance annually. It’s not much more than one and a bit trips so if you fly more than once a year, it’s well and truly worth it.


  • If you travel often you can also take out annual travel insurance.


  • I have not used domestic travel insurance; never had a need for too.

    • Oops! should read never “had a need for too much insurance; mainly trips via car and train.”


  • True, I’ve never given much thought to domestic insurance.
