Volunteering abroad makes travelling all the more worthwhile. From only *, we'll make sure you're covered for your trip.
Travel insurance for volunteers
Whether it's wildlife conservation or community development projects you're interested in, finding a reliable travel insurance policy should be top priority before setting off on your trip. Having robust cover from a trusted provider is a vital step to ensuring you can enjoy your trip with peace of mind.
Our policies include varying levels of baggage and cancellation cover, medical cover for unforeseen treatments and declared medical conditions, plus a 24-hour emergency helpline† with a support team at the ready when you need us most.
†If you need to seek medical attention whilst abroad, please ensure that you contact the 24-hour Emergency Assistance Service for help and advice before treatment, where possible, full details can be found within the policy wording.
Why choose Holiday Extras travel insurance?
We have two policy types either single-trip or annual multi-trip, each with four levels of cover to choose from. A single trip travel insurance policy will keep you covered for one trip of up to 365 days, while an annual multi-trip policy has you covered for an unlimited number of trips throughout the year (so long as each trip does not exceed a maximum of 45 days**).
If you're planning to volunteer abroad just once this year and for an extended period of time, our single trip cover is a good option. With this policy you can choose from the following levels of cover:
- Bronze - provides cancellation cover of £1000 per person, medical cover of £5 million, and £500 baggage cover.
- Silver - provides £2,500 cancellation cover per person, £10 million medical costs, and £1,500 baggage cover.
- Gold - provides £5,000 of cancellation cover per person, £2,000 baggage cover, and £10 million in medical cover.
- Platinum - provides £5,000 of cancellation cover per person, £2,000 personal possessions cover, £10 million in medical cover and £500 personal money, passport and documents cover. Platinum cover also comes with complimentary gadget and wedding insurance!
Annual multi-trip travel insurance
If you are a frequent traveller, then it could be worth considering a annual travel insurance policy. It's a great option if you are planning two or more trips in the year. Our annual policy offers the same cover levels as a single trip policy, but on a multi-trip basis (so long as each trip doesn't exceed 45 days).
Before you set off, you should check out our additional cover options, as there might be a number of sports and activities you'd like to try while volunteering. With 100+ sports and activities included in your policy, you could be covered for a range of activities, from bungee jumping and parasailing, to windsurfing to name a few.
Should you plan on doing any winter sports while volunteering then our winter sports policy add-on can help to provide extra cover towards these specialised sporting activities, as well as for any hired equipement.
