Travel Vaccinations

What is it?

Get your shots before you fly.

International travel is a fantastic thing for your body, mind and spirit. But visiting some countries can present serious health risks.

We’ll help you travel safely with a percentage benefit from 80% to 100% (up to your yearly limit) for travel vaccinations supplied and administered in Australia.

How does it work?

Make sure an avoidable illness doesn’t ruin your trip, get vaccinated and we’ll help you out by giving you some money back to help cover the costs.

It is important that you discuss your travel plans with a health professional so they can determine the correct vaccinations for your trip and any booster doses of childhood vaccinations that may be necessary.

Make an appointment with your GP or travel clinic for at least 6-8 weeks before you are due to depart, to discuss your vaccination needs.
