    Hi Laura,

     

    I've looked at the insurance offered by the post office and can't find any cover for one way travel. They only seem to offer single and multi trip insurance. A single trip is for 1 return journey. Multiple cover is for those who travel more often. Are you sure the cover you are looking at is for a one way journey? We looked into this recently and found out that ordinary travel policies from the UK will repatriate you back to the UK and not Australia. You need a special policy for migrants. You may have already checked this but thought I'd check anyway.

    Hi Aussie pat

    I will check this, the lady that gave me the booklet knew what we were doing, but she may not know the proper details. I will find out tomorrow, thanks for letting me know this. Definitely don't want to be brought back here!!!!!

    Is this not restricted for trips of less than 30 days or something like that?

     

    or are you thinking of getting another policy once you are out there?

    Hi I think that you have to look at the small print carefully - the problem is with some insurance thats not specifically one way travel insurance is that if you were to become seriously ill enroute they would repatratiate you back to the UK when you're heading to Oz. The majority of you will be covered by medicare when you arrive - even those who have limited cover as British citizens will be covered by the reciprocal agreement. I suppose the other issue is your belongings and insuring those against loss or theft. I remember doing a search on one way travel insurance on the internet and finding a company that way (it was one that I had never heard of). It was reasonably priced, I remember, but we never had to claim!

    Walkabout were the only ones that would insure us one way. The insurance lasted 21 days once in oz.

    All the others specified a return trip.

    we used Go Walkabout who specialize in one-way travel insurance so your not sent back lol. It cost about £90 and then i added laptop cover for another £20 which insured my laptop in case it got damaged or nicked while we were in holiday let, definetly worth considering. It lasted for 3 weeks x
