Hi Guys, Just so your aware, this is not regarding shipping and removals I was wondering if someone could help me with the insurance side of things. I am going on a Working Holiday Visa and I have been looking at insurance through various companies and they all seem to offer the same thing. For example, STA travel. They offer insurance, Standard, Premium etc. But it only involves repatriation back to the UK if injured. This has got me wondering, what if I am in Australia and I fall ill or involved in an accident? From my point of view, I will need to go to my local Australian doctor and seek advise or the local hospital to receive medical treatment. If I need prescribed medication, what do I do? Can anyone please point me in the right direction on this. Are there any insurance companies that will cover me in Australia or will i have to enroll in their health services? How do I go about this? Kind regards Corey
