When Should I Buy travel insurance?

Gap Year has teamed up with World Nomads to provide travel insurance for Non UK residents and travellers, even if they’re already on the road.

  • 24 hour emergency assistance if you’re in an accident or seriously ill overseas and need emergency medical treatment or hospitalisation.
  • Help to get you home if you’re injured or seriously ill and need to end your trip early, which may save you up to USD $200,000 in evacuation costs.
  • Protection for out of pocket expenses if certain unexpected things happen to cancel or interrupt your trip.
     
  • Cover for your gear if it’s lost by an airline or if it’s stolen when travelling.
