Travel Insurance for Australia

Australia is a wild and beautiful place, filled with a melting pot of culture and adventure, where many visitors are attracted to the wild lands of the Outback, its rich rainforest and splendid animals such as kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, wombats, duck-billed platypus and dingos. Some major attractions include the incredible coral reefs in the Great Barrier Reef; one of the world’s most creative performing arts centres, the Sydney Opera House, and not forgetting Uluru (Ayers Rock), the most photographed natural wonder in Australia.

A useful tip to note is that the bargaining or haggling of prices we often enjoy in Malaysian marketplaces is not customary in Australia, and a tipping rate of about 10 per cent of the bill is expected in upmarket restaurants and hotels. Just like in Malaysia, the Australian sun can be very strong and could burn your skin very quickly, so be sun smart and apply sunscreen SPF30+ or higher. Since Australia can be an active place with lots of activities to enjoy if you wish, it’s a good idea to pack sensible shoes so that you can get involved without injury! Of course, also make sure you cover yourself with travel and health insurance for visitors to Australia to be able to fully enjoy being in the country without any worries.
