At Real Gap Experience, we have travel insurance that has been specifically designed for the gap year traveller. If you think you’re already covered by an existing policy, such as those offered by credit card providers, check the policy wording very carefully to ensure it covers you for your Real Gap trip, specifically:
- Durations – many policies do not cover you if you’re travelling for more than 31 days. Our policies cover you for the duration you need.
- Activities – planning to volunteering, sky-dive, bungee jump, dive, climb Kilimanjaro or work with lions? Traditional budget holiday policies are rarely comprehensive enough to cover adventure travel, so make sure you double check before buying insurance.
To help you get the right cover Endsleigh Insurance and Real Gap Experience have put together three different policy options dependent on the trip you are planning. These are listed below along with prices. For a high-level overview of the policies click here
Gap Policy: Budget protection for the average backpacker traveller
Explorer Policy: Designed for people who would like extra cover
Explorer Plus: For those who plan to include a few more adventurous activities such as high altitude trekking
Please note: Our policies have a minimum age 16 and are not available to anyone aged 71 or over. Personal accident cover is not included for customers over 55 years old on any of our policies.
