Almost a year since New Zealand closed its borders to the rest of the world, the Government has hinted a quarantine-free travel bubble with Australia may be up and running as soon as next month. However, once the trans-Tasman bubble opens, Kiwi travellers could get stuck in Australia if an outbreak of Covid-19 caused any pauses in travel. They would essentially be stranded without financial support and insurance coverage to cover Covid-related cancellations.
