When purchasing GIO Travel Insurance, you should set your return date as the date you arrive back at your home address. That way you’re covered for the entire journey, from when you leave your home in Australia to start your trip, through to you returning back to your home in Australia at the end of your trip.
We ask for the oldest traveller's age on the day you purchase the policy because when you purchase a policy, part of your cover begins immediately.
