Australians are travellers. In fact, we’re among the busiest jet-setters in the world – and the 9th largest travel spenders. The proof is in the numbers:
Australians spent a total of $116.7 billion on travel in 2015. That’s almost 10 percent more than the previous year.
Of that total, $78.5 billion was spent on domestic trips alone.
The number of trips taken by Australians has increased by 8 percent in recent years.
That means for every 100 people, 42 trips are taken!
But many Australians travel without insurance…
Despite a high propensity to travel, more than 3/4 million Australians travel without insurance every year. And that’s bad. Travelling, whether for business or pleasure, is exciting – but it’s not without its risks.
Travel insurance serves to mitigate the risks that are inherent to adventure. Gallagher deals in specialised insurance services with risk management as a key point of focus, so we can assist you whether it’s a single trip, or year-round solution frequent travellers. Our solutions can cover individuals or families, with cover for sickness, loss and theft.
