✓Buy travel insurance
What’s the first thing you should always do after booking a holiday? Lock in your travel insurance. The government won’t pay for medical treatment or medical evacuation while you’re abroad, but travel insurance can. If you’re planning to take part in any adventure activities on an overseas trip, double-check they’re covered by your policy. Research by Finder.com.au found injuries caused by jetskiing, bungee jumping, paragliding and motorbike riding aren’t included in some policies, so read the fine print before you sign.
