Travel insurance brand, Protect Your Bubble, shares tips and insights for those heading to Australia.
Atlanta, Ga. (PRWEB) January 26, 2013
Today is Australia Day, and that means it’s a great time to be in, or traveling to, the Down Under. The holiday celebrates its history, culture and the anniversary of the arrival of the first ships from Great Britain in 1788. Travel insurance brand, Protect Your Bubble, shares tips and insights for those heading to Australia.
Road Travel – When driving in Australia, remember that drivers drive on the left side of the road. This can take some time to get used to. Driving in foreign places can be a bit distracting, putting the driver at increased risk of an accident. If renting a car, consider rental car insurance. Protect Your Bubble offers rental car insurance for U.S. travelers globally for only $7.99 per day. The peace of mind is worth the small investment.
Gratuity – Australians working in the hospitality industry are typically paid a minimum salary, however tipping is not common practice unless the service received exceeded expectations. A standard, appropriate tip in Australia is ten percent.
Sun Exposure – Because of its location, sunlight has very high levels of UV and can damage skin very quickly. All travelers are advised to protect against sunburn at all times. Be sure to wear hats, sunglasses, appropriate clothing and apply a high SPF sunscreen to all exposed skin areas.
Weather – In January, the average high is in the upper 70s, and quite cool in the evenings. Be sure to plan a wardrobe that can be layered for an easy day to night transition.
When planning your travel, remember that vacation insurance is a great way to cover trip emergencies, cancellations and interruptions. Protect Your Bubble travel protection gives travelers peace of mind, starting at $14 per trip. Visit protectyourbubble.com for a quick quote.
