How does this policy work ?
Gap Year Travel Insurance usually lasts a period of 12 months but can be less or more than this. It is important that you check the actual duration of your trip and unlike an Annual Multi Trip Travel Insurance policy, it is usually the cover for the duration of the trip away from the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland or the Channel Islands.
Our Gap Year policies offer the option to travel back to your country of Residents for one short period of time and not usually longer than 14 days.
With most policies, you are able to extend the duration of the cover in the event you wish to stay longer than you initially thought. Our policies can be extended up to 2 years.
