Peace of Mind - Travel Insurance

It is recommended that you purchase travel insurance while abroad to cover things like; delays, cancellations and lost luggage, sickness, injury and theft. This can be purchased for the duration of the flight(s) or an entire 12months depending on your preferences. STA or your Private Insurer can probably offer you the best deals - Expect to pay at least $1,000 for 12 months cover.

Once in the UK on your Working Visa your Health is covered under the National Health Insurance Programme  Given the amount of people this system covers, it works quite well and is not unlike our Medicare. Please note that NHS will NOT cover you while you're outside of the United Kingdom nor for any lost or stolen items whilst in the UK. So, when you are Running with Bulls and piffing Tomatoes in Spain or Downing Large glasses of Beer at Octoberfest you should look into having cover through one of the many providers  available. This usually works out to be quite affordable, paying per day of travel - eg.


If you're travelling with valuables such as jewellery, laptops..etc it may be worth getting comprehensive cover before you lob over. A mob by the name of can also cover you for any Medical emergency that requires you to come back to Australia immediately for around £50 per year.
