Insurance coverage for Australians

We are happy to serve many Australians as they travel around the globe! We offer US short term health plans which provide good comprehensive coverage options for all tourists, students or working professionals outside their country of residence. We regularly receive many queries from Sydney, New South Wales, and Melbourne, Victoria, for US visitor insurance. These Australian tourists are also interested in coverage for adventure sports. We have policies that also provide sports coverage apart from coverage for sickness and injury which works well for Australian travelers looking for hazardous sports coverage.

Motocross sports coverage

In our experience, many Australian travelers participate in motocross when they come to the US. Usually this coverage is available as a rider for an additional cost. Also, please be careful because while other policies can cover motorcycle riding, they will NOT cover motocross sports! If you have questions, please call us or email us!

Insurance for Australian students in the United States and US students in Australia

With over 4000 students, the United States is the top destination for Australian students studying overseas. Australia on the other hand is the Eight most popular study destination for US students overseas with about 8000 US students choosing to study in Australia.

Given the costly healthcare system in the United States it is important for Australian students to buy adequate student medical insurance in the US. While many Universities offer student insurance, the University student insurance is expensive, so students often prefer outside student insurance if the university allows it. The international student medical insurance that we offer are cheaper than University student medical insurance while having similar coverage. US students can also buy our student insurance plans for coverage overseas. International students can compare popular student insurance options and buy it online.
