Bushwalking Insurance

We cover a huge range of adventure activities including bushwalking with all our travel insurance policies.* Things can go wrong when bushwalking like bushfires, falls and getting lost. Always tell someone where you're going and when you'll be back that way if you don't return someone will know to alert the authorities. Please note there is no medical cover when bushwalking in Australia. 

  • Safety Tip. Always tell someone where you plan to walk and when you'll be back. Always try and take someone with you on a bushwalk.
  • Getting Lost. To send a search helicopter into bushland in search of a missing person can cost up to $12,000 an hour.
  • Personal Location Beacon. When bushwalking around Australia you should always carry a personal location beacon in case you experience an emergency.
  • Fire Risk. It's best not to bushwalk on days of high fire risk. Always check before heading out on a bushwalk.
