While going on holiday should be a fun and enjoyable experience, sometimes the unexpected can unfortunately happen. Voyager Plus Travel Insurance is designed to give you financial peace of mind that you are covered should something unexpected happen, so you are not left out of pocket, in the event of a valid claim.
Travel Insurance Benefits
The following summary of travel insurance benefits are just some of the areas of cover included as standard across all levels of cover on our Voyager Plus Travel Insurance policy. Please read the policy wording here for the full cover available under the policy.
Cancellation or Curtailment
A Cancellation is where you are unable to start your trip, due to an insured reason. A Curtailment is where you have to end your trip earlier than expected, due to an insured reason.
This section provides cover for any unused and non-refundable travel and accommodation costs (including unused pre-booked excursions and course fees) that have been paid, or where there is a contract to pay, if it is necessary to cancel or curtail the planned trip because of any of the events specified in the policy wording.
Emergency Medical Expenses
Medical treatment in other countries can be very expensive. This section covers the cost of emergency medical treatment, outside your home country if you’re injured or suffer unexpected illness including with symptoms of or testing positive for COVID-19 during your trip, in line with the policy terms, conditions and exclusions. Cover also includes the cost of repatriation back to your home country if medically necessary.
Please Note: If you have pre-existing medical conditions and would like cover in case you need emergency medical treatment related to them, you will need to complete a medical screening to see if cover is available and pay the appropriate additional premium.
Covers the loss, theft or damage to your baggage, meaning: personal belongings, including clothing worn, and personal luggage owned or borrowed by you that you take with you on your trip, as well as your valuables as defined in the policy wording.
Please Note: Your gadgets may not fall under the Baggage definition in the policy wording and you may need to also purchase the gadget cover Option to cover them.
In the event of a serious accident from which you suffer life changing injuries during your trip the policy will provide cover in the event of your death or permanent disablement because of the accident. Please refer to the policy wording for full details on this area of cover.
Please Note: Any immediate injuries you suffer from such an incident would be dealt with under the Emergency Medical Expenses section.
No one likes to be delayed when travelling!
So with Voyager Plus Travel Insurance cover is available if the public transport (meaning any aeroplane, ship, train or coach) that you are booked to travel on is delayed by at least 12 hours. If your departure from your home country is delayed for more than 12 hours and you choose to abandon your trip, instead of a payment for delay, you are covered for the cost of the trip under the Cancellation or Curtailment section of cover.
Missed Departure / Journey Disruption
Cover for additional travel and accommodation expenses in the event you miss the departure of your public transport for your trip, due to a specified reason as defined in the policy wording.
This section also covers, in the event of a Catastrophe (as defined in the policy wording), if you are forced to move from your pre-booked accommodation to allow you to continue your trip.
These are a few of the reasons why getting travel insurance is a good idea before you travel so that you are not left out of pocket should the unexpected happen. Furthermore, Voyager Plus Travel Insurance has a wide range of features and benefits, which are just not available on cheaper products, see the policy wording for full details.
What is Long Stay Travel Insurance?
A Long Stay Travel Insurance policy is one that covers you for one continuous trip and is sometimes called long term travel insurance. The minimum duration for a Voyager Plus Long Stay is 2 months or 62 days and can last up to 18 months (for certain circumstances this can be extended to 24 months or 2 years upon referral).
A Long Stay policy does not have to be to one country, you simply need to choose the area where you will be spending the most time, so it is great for Backpackers who may be travelling to multiple countries.
If you are planning on making a number of different trips within the next 12 months then an Annual Multi-Trip policy may be more suitable for your needs.
If you are looking for long stay travel insurance because you are planning on taking a longer-term trip or holiday of more than 62 days and up to 18 months in duration, a Voyager Plus Long Stay Travel Insurance policy will give you the peace of mind that you are protected financially if something should go wrong.
Our Long stay policies are suitable travel insurance for backpackers as well as being suitable should you need travel insurance for a gap year.
