Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a necessary evil however for gay and lesbian travellers there are a number of issues that need to be checked and especially the fine print:

  • For same sex couples and families does the policy cover you all.
  • Pre existing medical conditions. What is covered and not covered. This is particularly important for HIV+ travellers.
  • Are dangerous activities covered. Check very careful for example bungee jumping may not be covered. If possible get the insurance company to give you a list of dangerous activities.
  • Check what unattended baggage means. This may actually mean a bag in the boot of a car overnight.
The Australian consumer site Choice has a good checklist

We are also interested if anyone has used World Nomads travel insurance which we promote on RainbowTourism.com

We are also interested in who you buy your travel insurance and why - use the comment section to let us know.
