Make Travel Insurance Your Priority!
Travel Insurance is arguably one of the most important arrangements that you’ll make for your trip, which is why we’ve made Travel Insurance a mandatory requirement for anyone participating in one of our programmes.

For UK Residents, Travellers Worldwide is working in partnership with Endsleigh to offer our participants a policy which has been specifically designed to meet their requirements whilst on their trip. Policy benefits include:

  • Cover for a range of light manual work, volunteer activities and extreme activities
  • Cover from 1 day up to a year available
  • 100 sports and activities covered as standard
  • Cover for travellers aged 16-65 years

This table shows the maximum amounts payable under each section:

Cover section Comprehensive cover
John Doe
Cancellation or Curtailment Charges £5,000
Emergency Medical & Other Expenses £10,000,000
Personal Accident £30,000
Personal Money, Passport & Documents £500
Personal Liability £2,000,000
Baggage £2,500

IMPORTANT: It is an advantage to take out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip as cover will commence for pre-departure cancellation from the date you are accepted for cover. This will, therefore, provide cover should you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason such as illness or serious accident preventing you from travelling.
