Hello all!

I'm about to go to Morocco and just realised I'm not covered by my insurance for Africa. Any tips for a company that's cheap for a really short trip, and will insure me after I've left my country of residence? I'm an Aussie.

Cheers!
Maya

You could try:

Important. Never give any insurance company a get out clause. Mention any problems medical or otherwise, anything a little dangerous you might do there, anything expensive you are going to take along like a camera, etc.

Pop into a pharmacist and ask if there are any vaccinations, malaria tablets , etc that they would suggest for you. Morocco is supposed to be malaria free.

World Nomads is an Australian company and I know Peter has used them a number of times (7% off using promo code SAVE7 :)). The tricky part is whether or not they'll insure you once you've left home. Usually there's some kind of quarantine period if an earlier insurance has already run out for example.

I would also recommend 1cover.com.au as suggested by Cyberia. Its rates are really very low.
