Gap year travel insurance

If you’re taking a gap year from your studies to travel the world or live abroad for several months, our travel insurance is the ideal choice.

What is gap year travel insurance?

A gap year is commonly a period of time when students will take a break between college and university – essentially having a gap before further education. Many use this time to travel before settling into their studies or careers, which means that they often need travel insurance which covers them for a longer period.

The benefits of taking gap year travel insurance, means you can travel to a number of different countries under one single policy.

Types of gap year insurance cover

The usual type of insurance for a gap year is single trip insurance. This will cover you for a one-off trip of up to 365 days, and includes cover for medical expenses, lost baggage, and lots more. Just let us know the countries you’ll be travelling to and we’ll quote you a price for the whole trip.

Alternatively, if you’re planning to travel to multiple places but return home after each trip, our annual multi-trip travel insurance could save you time any money. These policies allow you to travel as often as you want on the same policy, although each individual trip will have a maximum duration of 31, 45 or 55 days abroad, depending on which level of cover you choose.

For more detail on what you’re covered for, see our full policy breakdown.
