    Car insurance

    Hi all, We are just waiting for our case officer to get round to our application, but we hope to move to Brisbane/Sunshine Coast later this year. I was told by someone that if you take copies of your no claims discount on your car insurance over with you, you can continue with a discounted insurance. Is that so? Rik

  3. Hi there. Has anyone experience of medical healthcare for 410 visa holders who are not eligable for Medicare. All policies seem to exclude pre-conditions. Do preconditions become covered after a period of time or are they permanent ? Are 410 holders not entitled to the reciprocal medical treatment which British tourists enjoy ? I am concerned that even though we have a comprehensive medical insurance policy in Australia, becuase of the exclusion of Pre-conditions, we risk facing considerable costs which are not covered, sooner or later. Any advise would be most welcome. Many thanks. T.D. Sheffield UK.
  4. Hi, Is anyone aware of whether or not the no claims that we have built up in the uk is transferrable to Australia. Its just that I have six years built up and the difference in costs is massive. Also whats the deal oin driving out there on a UK licence, are we only allowed so long before we need an Aus one or can we get away with it? Thanks

    Shipping Insurance

    We have just had quotes to ship everything across. They have not included Insurance, which is extra. They have quoted us standard insurance, I guess for loss or damage and an additional cost if you want to insure against mildew or internal damage to electrical items. Has anyone got any views on whether you need to take out the additional insurance for your electrical stuff and mildew and has anyone got experience of electrical items being damaged internally and not working or mildew everywhere. We are taking a couple of telly's and CD / DVD player etc. Many thanks Dominic

    Travel Insurance

    Hi, I'm going out to Australia for a year (initially) plus 1 week in USA before I get there (on Working Holiday Visa). Does anyone know of anywhere I can get insurance to cover this 'extended stay'. American Express do and they gave me a quote but I wanted to shop around. I'm not necessarily looking for the cheapest, but one that is good.
