Why do I need insurance to travel to Australia?

Travel insurance is not compulsory in Australia if you are going there as a tourist, but remember that you will no longer be covered by your national healthcare card (carte vitale) once you leave France. It is also important to remember that insurance linked to your bank card does not provide sufficient cover in a country like Australia where medical fees are known to be very expensive:



Because of the distance between France and Australia, it is essential to have comprehensive travel insurance which includes reimbursement for medical care, repatriation and civil liability.


It is essential that you take out travel insurance for your trip to Australia to cover you for anything that may happen regarding COVID-19, such as having to extend your stay in the event of mandatory medical quarantine or receive medical assistance if you should contract the virus.


If you are travelling to Australia on a student visa or working holiday visa, it is strongly recommended that you take out insurance. Chapka covers medical fees related to adventure sport at no extra cost!
