Student travel insurance

Whether you're going on a quick getaway to take your mind off your studies or travelling the world for several months, InsureandGo have a student savvy policy for you.

Our Budget policy is cheap and covers the essentials, so you don’t need to worry about making sure you’ve got your back covered.

If you’re planning a longer trip or gap year, our backpackers insurance covers trips of up to 18 months and could be the perfect policy for you.

What is student travel insurance?

Students typically want a policy that is as cheap as possible, but these can sometimes be a false economy if they don’t cover what you need them to.

Our Budget policy is designed with students in mind, being cheap but still covering the essentials – so you won’t get caught out. We also offer a very competitive backpackers policy, so from short city breaks to activity-packed adventures, we’ll have you covered.

We cover over 50 activities

All of our backpackers policies come with cover for over 50 activities and sports as standard, so you can get up to more on your trip.

What are you covered for with student travel insurance?

Depending on the type of holiday you’re planning, we can cover a wide range of possibilities. Our backpacker policy is great if you’re going away for up to 18 months, or our Budget policy will cover you for up to 31 days – more than enough for most student getaways.

Both policies include medical cover, various levels of valuables insurance, and an extensive list of over 50 different activities - all so you can enjoy what your destination has to offer.

What to pack for your student trip

Now we all end up forgetting something when we’re packing last minute, be it your underwear, socks or other unmentionables. Here are a few items that are frequently forgotten, but a godsend to have in your bag:

  • The ever-important travel plug
    You do not want your phone, tablet, iPod, e-reader, or other electrical essentials going dead!

    You may need to contact someone in an emergency, but more importantly you’ll need something to keep you entertained during those long flights (or worse - those nights when your travelling companions’ snoring just will not quit).
  • Waterproof bags
    Look, it doesn’t have to be anything more than a Sainsbury’s carrier bag (seriously), but putting your toiletries and liquids inside a plastic bag can make all the difference. Especially when the airline’s bag packers throw your stuff just that little bit too hard.
    Nobody wants to open their luggage to find a suntan lotion explosion.
  • Drugs
    No, not that… Remember painkillers. Nothing ruins a party or even a hike more than a sudden, untreatable headache. Taking a mini safety pack could save your day or night out. Include bits like plasters, paracetamol and protection (insect repellent or otherwise).
  • Somewhere clever to put emergency cash
    Unfortunately, young people can often be an easy target for crime. Whether you’ve fallen asleep on a beach in Magaluf, or simply let your guard down backpacking, having a secret pocket or hidden compartment in your clothing or shoes could be the one thing that gets you back to safety.
