How can I pay?

Do you offer travel insurance?

Yes. Travel insurance can assist with those unexpected overseas medical and dental costs, amendment or cancellation fees, luggage and travel documents including lost or stolen passports. The Department of Foreign Affairs handle over 20,000 cases a year involving Australians in difficulty overseas. Unfortunately, not all of these cases involved travellers covered by travel insurance. Travellers who are not covered by insurance are personally liable for covering medical and associated costs incurred.

Launceston Travel & Cruise Centre has a range of travel insurance policies that you can choose from and recommend that you consult the Product Disclosure Statement before deciding which policy is most appropriate to your needs and circumstances.

'If you can't afford travel insurance, you can't afford to travel.'

Can I get travel assistance, whilst overseas?

Yes. For peace of mind 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, an after hours contact number is provided to all our clients, connecting you directly to a Launceston Travel & Cruise Centre Consultant.

Do you offer a gift registery?

Do you offer currency exchange?
