Australia – A Trip of a Lifetime Beckons

ICICI Lombard Travel Insurance policies are designed to ensure hassle-free trips. Our travel insurance plans allow you to avail emergency cash advance facility, in case your credit card isn't working or if you face a financial problem overseas.

Additionally, the policy provides cover against loss of passport, emergency medical evacuation and treatment, loss or delay of baggage, theft and injury among others. Whether you are traveling for leisure or business, we have you covered.

Australia has a wide spectrum to offer the visitor. Visit Perth, Melbourne or Sydney to enjoy a cosmopolitan and diverse experience with a range of fine food, nightlife activities and events. The summers are warm, whereas the winters are moderate. If you need a break from beaches and nightlife, you can head to the Sydney Opera House for some of the world most talked about shows.

Come visit Australia, spend time with your loved ones on the sandy beaches, hang out with locals, and go explore the wildlife. Australia is home to a wide variety of dangerous animals, such as venomous snakes and scorpions. Therefore, get yourself covered with a travel insurance plan that safeguards you against emergency hospitalisation, before you go exploring nature’s trails.

Traveling abroad can be a life changing experience; however, there are no guarantees in life. Travel insurance is aimed to minimise the distress caused in such a scenario and utilise the best course of action when you are in a foreign land. In case you or your loved one need to be hospitalised in Australia, the medical expenses can eat into your hard-earned savings. ICICI Lombard Travel Insurance will ensure that you and your loved ones are safe and financially protected.

Customer Reviews


Madhavi Banerjee

My husband and I were visiting Australia for the first time. When we landed and checked-in to our hotel room, we realised our passports were missing. Thank heavens that I had convinced him to opt for ICICI Lombard travel insurance. We received extensive support from their team and a disaster was averted.


Kripa Shankar Sharma

I was visiting my grandson in Australia and on our way back to the airport, I suffered a heart attack. Considering my age (67) it was wise of me to opt for a travel insurance plan. I was provided emergency hospitalisation and ICICI Lombard travel insurance just saved my life! Thank you team.
