Swinburne Study Tours

Check if your short term study tour has included travel insurance, as this is frequently part of the program.

  • Seems that Fast Cover has the cheapest option
  • It's cheaper to do one whole year at a time rather than two split sections usually.
  • Most of the frequent traveller plans have maximum lengths of about 60-90 days, which is insufficient

Fast Cover and their PDS
Budget Direct Travel Insurance

  • Not financial advice. This catalogues an experience of mine, and does not necessarily apply to you. American's are really scared about even confirming when something meets the insurance requirements. I don't really know why. *
