Dear Working Holiday makers,

Getting ready for your journey? When you look for insurance, don’t decide on the spot. Shop around and see what the best option is. Here’re some tips.
– Lower premium means less coverage. Make sure to cover what you need.
– Read policy wording before purchase(especially exclusion clause)
– Ask questions. Understand some important definition such as “pre-existing condition” and “emergency”.
