Why do I need travel insurance?
For most, travel is a wonderful experience. Although we don't plan for things to go wrong, unfortunately, sometimes they do. Travel insurance allows you to travel with complete peace of mind.
Travel insurance can assist with those unexpected overseas medical and dental costs, amendment or cancellation fees, luggage and travel documents including lost or stolen passports
The Department of Foreign Affairs handle over 20,000 cases a year involving Australians in difficulty overseas. Unfortunately, not all of these cases involved travellers covered by travel insurance. Travellers who are not covered by insurance are personally liable for covering medical and associated costs incurred.
…we found ourselves well & truly caught up in Hurricane Sandy… it just shows how important it is to deal with such a wonderful travel company as yours. I would recommend PHT to all my friends.
