    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is this insurance designed for?
    Global Travel Cover is designed for anyone who plans to explore more of the world, whether from a short weekend visit to friends in the country next door, or a long-haul adventure traversing across multiple continents over multiple months. We've designed our plans to ensure almost anyone can feel confident knowing they've got our full protection in the case something doesn't go to plan when on their international trip. Unlike most insurances, we also include cover for Covid-19 and winter mountain sports, such as skiing & snowboarding, in every single plan and at no extra charge.
    What ages can get Global Travel Cover?
    All ages from less than 1 to over 80 can be enrolled in our plans, so long as the purchaser is of the age of majority and completes the checkout process.
    What if I am already overseas?
    Unlike most other insurance companies, we do not require you to be in your home country at the time of purchase or in order to 'activate' your policy, meaning wherever you are right now, you can get your global travel cover and continue with your adventures, knowing you're instantly covered.
    Why choose Global Travel Cover?
    Our name says it all! We're one of the very few brands who truly provide global insurance protection for international travellers within just the one policy. Most insurance brands have different pricing for different regions, but we know our customers often go with the wind and end up staying abroad much longer than they originally planned. Global Travel Cover is the insurance arm of one of the world's leading online youth travel agencies, Global Work & Travel, and together we know exactly what our customers care about when needing high value-for-money travel protection without the added cost of the things they don't. All policies are also supported by our group's 24/7 Global Emergency Line, your first line of defence in any sticky travel situations with a team on stand-by ready to assist, 365 days a year.
