Survey reveals travel insurance an increasing priority for Australian travellers
Australia’s devastating bushfires earlier this year and the COVID-19 pandemic have caused more Australian travellers to consider travel insurance, according to financial comparison website canstar.com.au.

When asked about their intention to take out insurance in the wake of the bushfires and the pandemic, this number climbed to 54 per cent.
