We believe that safety and enjoyment are equally important when travelling with Real Gap Experience. It is therefore one of the terms and conditions of your booking that you have adequate insurance in place before you travel with us. Real Gap Experience has partnered with Endsleigh to offer you policies which have been specifically designed to meet your requirements whilst you are on your trip with us.
The policy has been individually designed to meet the needs of our travellers, with over 100 activities covered as standard. The Real Gap Experience policy also allows you to add cover for more adventurous activities such as Kite Surfing, trekking to 6,000m and scuba diving to 40m to name a few.
The Real Gap Experience policy will provide cover for cancellation or curtailment charges, personal accident, emergency medical expenses, overseas legal expenses, personal money, passport and documents, baggage and personal liability. Unlike many policies it will provide valuable cover for pre-existing medical conditions, providing you have not received treatment for the condition, nor been diagnosed during the past twelve months.
It is advantageous to take out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip as cover will commence for pre-departure cancellation from the policy issue date. This will provide cover should you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason, such as illness or serious accident preventing you from travelling.
Please note that the only difference between the Real Gap Experience and the Real Gap Experience Plus policy is the list of activities that is covered.
This summary does not contain the full terms and conditions which can be found here. Real Gap Experience ltd is an appointed representative of Endsleigh Insurance Services Ltd which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

You can secure travel insurance when booking any of our programmes or you can add this at a later date once booked (via your Online Account). Please be aware though that trip cancellation cover only protects from the day you pay for your travel insurance in full.
