Student travel insurance

Whether you’re going on a quick getaway to take your mind off your studies, spending a term at a foreign university, or travelling the world on post-finals extravaganza, InsureandGo will have a student savvy insurance policy for you.

What is student travel insurance?

Students often want travel insurance that is as cheap as possible, but this can be a mistake if it doesn’t cover everything you need.

Our Budget policy is designed with travellers such as students in mind, being cheap but still covering the essentials – so you won’t get caught out. The policy can cover everything from short city breaks to backpacking odysseys! 

What does student travel insurance cover?

All of our student travel insurance policies include:

The excess and cover limits will vary depending on the policy chosen. Find out more in our policy wordings. Cover for additional activities, or any particularly valuable belongings, can be added to your travel insurance policy, making sure you’re covered for your specific needs.

What are you covered for with student travel insurance?

Depending on the type of trip you’re planning, we can cover a wide range of possibilities. Our single trip Budget policy will cover you for up to 365 days, more than enough for most student getaways. Alternatively, an annual multi-trip policy might work out cheaper if you’ll be going away more than once this year.

Both policies include medical expenses cover, insurance for your luggage, and cover for an extensive list of over 50 different activities – so you can enjoy whatever your destination has to offer.

Does my student travel insurance cover adventurous sports?

Yes! For many students, joining the college or university sports team can be one of the top priorities when studying abroad. With our travel insurance policies we cover over 50 adventurous sports and activities as standard so you’re free to have fun knowing you’re covered should something unfortunate occur.

If you happen to be an adrenaline junkie and plan on taking part in an activity not covered as standard, additional extreme sports cover can be added to any of our policies.  This covers you if you’re planning on skydivingrock climbing, swimming with sharks and many other extreme sports.

Take a look at our policy wording for full details of the cover provided.

Student travel insurance with medical conditions

We’ll consider covering any diagnosed medical condition you might be travelling with – just let us know before you go! Our Budget policies don’t offer medical screening, so if you do have a condition just choose Silver, Gold or Black and answer a few simple questions. We can cover many medical conditions at no extra cost, but for others there may be an additional premium to pay.

You can check through our insurance policy documents for further details, or get in touch for more information.

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