Travel Insurance

The new Policy and Advisory Library (PAL) is now available. This page will be redirected to PAL from the start of Term 3. Make sure to update your bookmarks to the new PAL site.

Purpose of Policy

To ensure that all government schools have access to sufficient and affordable travel insurance.


The Department has arranged a Travel Insurance facility for Schools to secure comprehensive travel insurance for students and accompanying adults involved in International and Interstate travel that is not funded by the Department. The insurer is the State insurer – Victorian Managed Insurance Authority (VMIA). 

Schools may elect not to access this facility however the insurance coverage provided by VMIA is generally more comprehensive than similar products available in the commercial insurance market and is competitively priced.
