Backpacker Travel Insurance

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is an independent UK company.

Visa Bureau considers it essential for all our clients to have adequate travel insurance, especially if they are embarking on a Working Holiday or Gap Year to Australia or New Zealand.

Top of any Working Holiday Maker’s priorities should be to ensure that they are sufficiently covered in the event of a medical emergency.  

A reciprocal agreement between Governments means British and Irish nationals do have access to urgent or emergency medical treatment in Australia and New Zealand, but this health care agreement is no substitute for travel insurance.

It is important to remember that:

Working Holiday insurance will give you full cover for the duration of your trip and give you, and your relatives, peace of mind. 

It is also important to make sure that a number of factors are covered before you purchase the right Working Holiday insurance:

With your full protection in mind, Visa Bureau have linked up with Columbus Direct to ensure you have access to the best possible cover at a competitive price.

The Columbus Direct policy provides comprehensive insurance coverage for those travelling to Australia or New Zealand on a Working Holiday visa. The policy automatically provides for up to 3 return trips to the UK during the period of insurance.
