Downunder Insurance

United Kingdom Australia New Zealand

This policy is good for those travelling to Australia and NZ... also a 10% discount for UK policies if purchased online. There is also a cheaper UK policy called 'Essentials' which pretty much only covers, well, the essentials like medical and accidents but no baggage.
