State Trustees is urging Victorians with itchy feet to update their wills prior to post-pandemic travel.

  • International borders are finally reopening after 600 days of closures for Victorians.The excitement of far-flung locations and adventurous activities make it easy to forget there is a chance that something could go wrong while abroad.
  • According to Smartraveller, a staggering 1000-odd Australians die overseas every year, usually through unexpected illness or accidents.
  • Most Australian families have pre-travel checklists that involve top-of-mind tasks such as renewing passports and purchasing travel insurance. There is one must-have that is often pushed to the bottom of the list – creating or updating your will.
  • Despite the importance of an up-to-date will, creating one is still low on the priority list for most people, according to a survey commissioned by State Trustees in 2021.
  • Creating a will through State Trustees can be completed in as little as thirty minutes.

Case Study available: Melbournian Maria Crews is one of many Australians planning to travel this December, having booked flights to reunite with her family in Hawaii after two years apart. While Maria is no travel novice, this time around she has decided to update her will prior to travelling, ensuring her assets, legacy and young child are kept safe if anything unexpected were to happen.
