    Hi, Can anyone recommend a company to use for landlord insurance for UK property rental please? All the ones I have looked at say you must be a 'permanent UK resident' in the terms and conditions. Thanks

    Which Travel Insurance?

    Hi What type of insurance do we need to get when booking a one way ticket to Australia? I'm guessing it's different to when booking a holiday as if you needed to make a claim you would be doing so from Oz. :biggrin: Thanks Carla
  5. :GEEK: Hey All, we are finally off to the Sunny Coast QLD on Monday and are just tying up loose ends, one of which is to arrange TRAVEL INSURANCE that will cover us for the journey and for a month in OZ while we sort out a permanent address and get Aussie health cover. We have looked at " duinsure.com " who have an EMIGRATION POLICY which will cost us £56.00 each ( this seems very reasonable covering 5 days travel and 1 month in OZ ). Has anyone used this company or recommend similar cover ? Excited & Apprehensive. Russ

  7. Just been looking at car insurance, prices seem good, but motorcycle insurance seems ridiculous. I pay about £200 in the uk for two bikes. Over here for one bike it's $1200. How has everyone else found it ?

    Health insurance on 457 visa

    Hi - we have our 457 visas and we had to obtain medical insurance for the visa. Do we need to keep this when we arrive in Melbourne? I'm sure that I have read that once you have registered with Medicare that it is no longer required. I don't want to cancel it if it will cause problems with visa. Thanks

    Do you take out travel insurance?

    When you travel abroad do you take out travel insurance? I know the stats say that 20% of holiday makers travel without insurance but is it really that important?

    Travel Insurance for Older folk

    Don't know if anyone can help but my parents would like to come to Oz to visit us ... They are both in their 70s and my Dad has had serious heart issues in the past - consequently they are struggling to find travel / health insurance either at all or for an affordable price .... Is anyone able to recommend any companies or any alternative - eg could we cover them on our health insurance policy - we are PR but they are visitors. Any advice welcome! Thank you!

    Hi all Does anyone know if I need to get travel insurance for my family for a UK visit?

  20. hi there, i am hoping there is someone out there who can give us a name of an insurer who is willing to insure 2 imported UK cars. I am stumbling across insurers who do not insure imports :mad: help plsssssssssssssssssssss
  21. Just wondering if there are any UK insurance companies that would accept my Australian no claims bonus. I had read a thread on here sometime ago with a few companies listed on it but I cannot find it now. Thanks guys.
  22. Hi all...My partner is British and we are in the UK frequently and are finding hiring cars to be expensive. Does anyone have any suggestions on insurance companies who would allow me (an Australian) to insure/drive a car that we would buy to keep in the UK at my partners fathers house. My partner would be the main driver and I would be a named driver. Any advise would be greatly apreciated, thanks heaps :biggrin:

    Car Insurance

    Hi, We are now in Perth two weeks and trying to organise ourselves. We bought a car yesterday, and are wondering can anyone suggest the best place to get car insurance? Do they take into account the years you have your licence in the UK or is it like starting over again with your new ozzie one? Also looking at living in the Kinross area. Has anyone got any advise? Thanks
  24. Hi all, hope someone can help, we have just been granted our 457 visas with health insurance in-place of course. I have previously read from other people that they have cancelled their health insurance on arrival in Oz as the reciprocal agreement with the UK is pretty good and all emergency health care is covered with their medi care system etc..Query is if in 12 months time we are wanting to sit TRA and go for PR employer sponsored visa, is their any requirement to show proof of ongoing health insurance cover during life of the 457 for this PR employer sponsored visa? Would we be disadvantaged in applying for the PR Employer sponsored visa if could not show ongoing health insurance, as it is apparently condition 8501 stated on visa that we have the Insurance? Any advice appreciated folks, and thanks in advance....

    Life Insurance in Oz

    Do super funds or companies offer life insurance in Oz without doing a medical or checking for pre existing conditions? My company in the UK did this, which I was greatful for because I have a pre existing condition which would have otherwise prevented me from getting cover. If they don't - can you get life insurance in Oz with exclusions?
