Travel Insurance

If You Can Afford To Travel, You Can Afford Travel Insurance

It’s always surprising when we get asked the question: “do we really need travel insurance?”

While some may not mind taking the risk of losing money if you lose your belongings or need to cancel your trip….. no one wants to be without health care in the case of an emergency situation.

Also, travel insurance that covers treatment in case you test COVID-19 positive during your trip is mandatory if you want to avoid arrival quarantine in Bali. You can read the latest updates here

Getting a Bali Travel Insurance is Quick and Easy

The reality in Bali hospitals is it’s payments first, treatments second. Even with travel insurance if you need to be admitted to the hospital, you will be required to pay around a $500 AUD deposit (which is refundable) while they contact your insurance company. Those with no coverage are up for thousands of dollars each day they require hospitalisation.

We get many requests asking us to post about GoFundMe campaigns for tourists who have become ill or who have been in an accident during their holiday and don’t have travel insurance to pay for their treatments.

We also often hear “I can’t afford it”.

It’s this simple, if you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel. In our opinion, at the very least you should have medical insurance when travelling. Medical bills can add up very quickly, even for the simplest of treatments. If you pay a little extra for your policy you can get Comprehensive Cover which also covers you for theft, loss, cancellation and natural disasters. Getting insurance is quick and easy!
