Never beaten on price

Volunteering abroad makes travelling all the more worthwhile. From only £12.25* per week, we'll make sure you're fully covered for your trip.

Travel insurance for volunteers

Why not secure your travels with a holiday insurance policy before you set off? With all the challenges you might face volunteering abroad, finding the right cover is just one less thing to worry about! All of our policies include varying levels of baggage and cancellation cover, medical cover for unforeseen treatments and declared medical conditions, plus a 24-hour helpline with a support team at the ready when you need us most.

Better still, all of our policies include end supplier failure cover. Should the airline or accomodation let you down before you arrive or throughout your stay, we can soften the blow by providing cover of up to £5000 so you aren't left out of pocket.

Why choose Holiday Extras travel insurance?

We have two policy types and three levels of cover to choose from, we like to keep our policies flexible. A single trip travel insurance policy will keep you covered for one trip of up to 365 days. So if you're only planning to volunteer abroad just the once this year and maybe for an extended period of time, our single trip cover is your best bet. With this policy you can choose from the following levels of cover:

  • Basic cover provides £1,500 of baggage insurance and another £500 of cancellation cover per person, as well as £1 million towards medical costs.
  • Standard cover offers cancellation insurance of £1,000 per person, medical cover of £2 million and baggage cover at £1,500.
  • Premium cover raises your medical protection to £5 million, baggage cover to £1,500 and cancellation cover to £5,000 per person.

Annual multi-trip travel insurance

You might have a year of volunteering opportunities planned, as a frequent traveller you could benefit from purchasing an annual travel insurance policy. It's the best option if you are planning two trips or more. Our annual policy offers the same cover levels as our Premium package on a multi-trip basis, you will benefit from maximum levels of cover for an unlimited amount of trips across 12 months - just make sure each trip doesn't exceed 23 days.

Additional cover

Before you set off, you should check out our additional cover options. Depending on where you'll be volunteering, there's bound to be a few sports and activities for you to try. With 100+ sports and activities already included in your policy, you're all set to bungee jump, parasail and wind surf to name a few. If there's a particular sport you had in mind for your trip, we provide extra cover towards golf and winter sports. Our additional cover packages are especially useful if you plan to hire equipment or travel with your own!
