Travel insurance may not be the most exciting part of planning your gap year, but it doesn't have to be a pain to organise. True Traveller Insurance is straightforward, great value cover for gappers that doesn't cost the earth.

So what kind of gap year insurance do you need? Well, our clients told us what's really important is good medical cover, but they also said they didn’t see the point paying for baggage cover when the contents of their backpacks really weren’t worth that much? We agreed and designed our policies especially for gap year travellers, making sure you have the cover you need, but keeping prices low at the same time.

Some of the many benefits of True Traveller Insurance include:

  • Medical and Repatriation cover to £10M

  • Cover for up to 18 months, and then you can extend at a discount if you need to

  • Free home visits (as many as you like!)

  • Claim on the road; hospital bills paid directly

  • No return ticket required

  • 91 activities included as standard

  • Add on your gadgets separately if you need to

  • Take out cover when already travelling

We can insure Gappers who normally live in the UK or the EEA, and we've arranged our insurance with Allianz Global Assistance, part of the Allianz Group; who according to Forbes Magazine are the largest insurance company in the World.

The True Traveller was originally a travel company, not an insurance company, and although we believe we've designed the best value gap year travel insurance we possibly can, we understand that the price of insurance does put people off taking it out to start with. Our maxim is, if you can't afford travel insurance, you can't afford to travel.
