Do I really need travel insurance?
Yes, you really need travel insurance.
If you don't have travel insurance, you (or your family) are personally responsible for covering any medical or other costs resulting from unexpected incidents or accidents.
Accidents can happen to anyone, and medical costs overseas can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars. The Australian Government will not pay for your medical treatment overseas, medical evacuation to Australia or a third country, or repatriation of your remains if you die overseas.
