Insurance for the worst?

    Recommended Posts

    Hi

     

    I'm sure I've read somewhere that you can pay insurance in case the worst happens and a close relative dies whilst you're living in Australia. If you have to fly back at short notice the flights can be expensive if you're not prepared for them.

     

    Has anyone heard of such an insurance, that would cover the cost of the flights?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Carol Ann

    Think it is repatriation insurance you are looking for -

    Well worth taking out.

    We did not .

     

    We hit the worst case scenario.

     

     

     

    Both our Mum's passed away last year + we have been back and forth to the UK visiting them over a two year period.

     

    I reckon we have spent in excess of $20,000 in flights and car hire in the last two years.

    The OE insurance policy is on hold at the moment as they are changing brokers - they hope to have a policy back in place in early March.

    Check conditions though because our says that the parent has to be under 80 years old

    There are definitely some conditions attached. OE are our agency & I remember at one stage reading about this a lot. Its something I will consider once our visas here but I would definitely read it 'very carefully'.

     

    Has any-one else had a similar policy from any-where else?

     

    Good luck

    Does anyone know if this insurance still exists? My Dad has had a health scare this week and i want to make sure I can get home if needed.

     

    Thanks
