    I noticed this new offering on the DJ web booking page on Weds night when I was booking a ticket.

    I just booked myself flights SYD-MCY-SYD on DJ and it offered insurance for $9 for both sectors. Seems to be pretty good value

    I purchase travel insurance for most of my domestic travel. It costs $25 per trip and the cover for my golf clubs and up to $3000 towards reducing rental vehicle insurance excess is worth it!

    YMMV was never truer in this one ...

    I do ~25 return domestic trips PA; this last 12 months I have had over 10 International trips as well.

    In this regard, my $340 annual policy covering all the above is reasonable value.

    Agree an annual policy is the way to go if you do enough trips every year. So far that has not been the case with me. Although with my travel plans for next year including a trip to New Zealand and possibly a trip to Europe on top of the 3 SE Asian trips and the domestic golf trips the annual policy would be of great value.

    That reminds me JohnK - I can't remember exactly when your NZ trip is, but the current sale for early January between AKL and WLG may be of use to you?

    Thanks Kiwi Flyer. Incredibly low fares! Unfortunately my trip is not until the end of January. :(

    sales less likely then since end of school holidays is busy travel period (and business travel back to normal by then) - I'll let you know if I see anything useful.
