Leaving you with cancelled plans and significant unbudgeted and out of pocket expenses. Travel insurance can help lessen the financial risks and protect yourself, your belongings and your travel investment against unwelcome surprises.

We suggest that you take out insurance at the time of booking with Us and paying any deposit(s) but in any event no later than the date the final balance of funds is paid to Us.

Injury; death; theft; loss of luggage and personal items; curtailment of tours en route; medical expenses (including Overseas Medical Assistance and Evacuation); cancellation of advance purchase airfares; additional expenses to cover hotel accommodation and repatriation costs to Australia should your tour need to be extended or curtailed due to illness while overseas, or due to a need to return because of an unexpected death or illness of a close relative.

If you have an existing annual insurance policy or intend using credit card insurance we suggest you review the Product Disclosure Statement that sets out what level of cover you have to ensure it is appropriate for your trip. In any case, if you are not covered by a travel insurance policy, the responsibility remains with you and Tailor-Made Journeys specifically declines any responsibility whatsoever.
