Benefits of Long Stay Travel Insurance
- Specifically designed for long-term travel
Spending a long period away from home requires a different type of travel insurance to short stay holiday insurance. You may be visiting several countries backpacking, or you may be staying in one area to live and work for a fixed period before returning home.
If you're planning a long trip, buy travel insurance suitable for spending an extended period away from home. Many insurers offer the same travel insurance policy whether you are travelling for 1 day or a year - we recognise that your needs are different.
Backpacking travel carries different risks to shorter holidays, often involving a number of flights and less pre-booked accommodation. Inadequate cover can ruin your plans and force you to return home early.
- Greater flexibility
Plans often change when you're travelling long-term, so you need Travel Insurance which offers the ability to extend insurance during your trip and to add cover for activities as you go.
- High levels of cover for Medical costs
Medical emergencies can arise whenever you travel and Backpackers are more likely to have to visit a Dr for at least a minor ailment. Treatment for more serious illness or injury could lead to huge costs, so taking out a Longstay travel policy with high medical cover is essential.
- 24-hr Multi-lingual Emergency helpline
All Worldwide Insure travel policies provide high levels of cover for the cost of urgent medical treatment, whether from a GP or in hospital. Our Assistance Service can liaise between overseas medical staff and your own doctor so you don't have to. Treatment overseas can be costly, particularly if you need repatriation home following a medical emergency, so travel safe in the knowledge that your Worldwide Insure policy provides assistance should something go wrong.
A holiday can be ruined by the theft or loss of personal baggage; a delayed departure; a missed flight – or having to cancel your trip altogether. At least taking out insurance means you won’t suffer the financial impact too.
- Many Sports & Activities covered
A wide range of Sports and Activities are covered, including Wintersports.
