Can I just ask what you are all planning to do about travel insurance for your trip over to Oz? I know that we will need to register with Medicare once we arrive and should get the necessary document/ref no. within 3 weeks or so but I am just pondering the best place to get travel insurance to cover us before this.
Normally you would purchase travel insurance as a fairly standard scenario but not sure whether to go for a specific Aussie package or just insurance that obviously covers Oz. We are stopping in Perth on the way so will probably need at least 5/6 weeks cover before we can be sure we are at least covered by the basics of Medicare.
Just wanted to post my thoughts and get your opinions!
