So I’m going to be riding the moto from home down to Tassie and back again via lots of dirt and back roads over about six weeks at the end of the year. Mrs Mick is slightly concerned and thinks I should get travel insurance but I’m unsure what I would need it for. For $17 I can get cancellation insurance on my ferry tickets and I don’t have any accommodation booked as I will be camping for most of the trip. I have RACQ Ultra which I’m going to upgrade to Ultimate. That will cover me for up to 200kms of towing as well as accommodation and or flights home etc if the bike will take too long to repair. Qld Ambulance Service will cover the costs of any emergency pre-hospital ambulance treatment and transport Australia-wide. I have comprehensive insurance on the bike.
Is there anything that travel insurance is going to cover me for that I don’t already have? Do I need it? Can I even get it for riding a moto from home to Tassie and back again?
