New Zealand Travel Insurance
So who remembers one of the final scenes in the 1939 film 'The Wizard of Oz' when Glinda the Good Witch gives Dorothy (a very youthful Judy Garland) instructions as to how to get home to Kansas? Upon clicking her heels three times and saying the words, 'There's no place like home', Dorothy soon finds herself back in her own bed to realise that her adventures were all just a dream. However, the dream taught her to value home and her family. You may wonder what this has to do with travel insurance within New Zealand. Well, more and more New Zealanders are giving foreign travel a miss nowadays to enjoy and appreciate their home country.
New Zealand is made up of two main landmasses and numerous smaller islands, containing a distinctive biodiversity of animal and plant life. Much of the culture is derived from the indigenous Māori people, and a renewed interest in New Zealand's history has seen traditional arts become more mainstream. Combine Māori tradition with the influence of Polynesian history as well as the early British settlers, add a diverse landscape made famous in recent years due to its use as a backdrop for big budget movies, and the result is a fascinating and intriguing country simply begging to be explored. It's not just foreign tourists that can enjoy our great country!

Domestic Travel Insurance
Travelling around home territory isn't without its pitfalls. Though it is much easier to get home if problems arise, and hospitalisation is not as much of a worry as it would be in a foreign country, there are still risks and hazards that make having a domestic travel insurance policy a sensible precaution, before setting off on an adventure.
Downunder Insurance offers domestic travel insurance as part of their Explorer or Comprehensive policies, and offer competitively priced premiums for long and short trips. They provide cover for singles, couples, and families, and cover older travellers who are so often not offered cover due to their advancing years.
What Does Domestic Travel Insurance Cover?
As well as providing cover for worst-case scenarios such as accidental death and permanent disability, domestic travel insurance exists to protect travellers in situations where trip cancellations or lost deposits could leave them out of pocket. Trip delays and any incurred expenses such as accommodation or alternative transport are also covered with the insurance policy, as well as an allowance for delayed luggage and personal effects.
Theft of cash, money orders, and bank notes is included as well as loss or theft of travel documents, credit cards, luggage, and personal effects. While nobody likes to think that they will be robbed in their own country, sadly these sorts of incidents do happen. Personal liability is included within our policies. Accidents do happen and when they involve a third party or his/her property, this could become an expensive problem.
