When travelling abroad, you should remember the benefits of having Travel Insurance. Anything can happen during your trip and a good travel insurance policy will provide practical help through the emergency assistance service and also help you recoup any financial loss – such as medical bills. Unfortunately, not everyone buys travel insurance because they believe it’s too expensive. This could be the biggest mistake you could ever make because oversees doctors and medical bills can easily run into thousands. You can compare Travel Insurance policies to find the deal that’s right for you so that you are only paying for what you need.

All Globelink travel insurance policies are available to people who are living in UK or other EU Countries and to Australian, New Zealand and South African Passport holders currently living in the EU.
You can compare some of the different types of policies available below:
Single Trip Travel Insurance is designed for people who take one to two trips a year. Trip durations can vary from as little as a few days to 15 months in length, depending on your age. Choose between Economy cover that provides the basics, to Regular cover, up to Comprehensive, which offers the best cover we provide.
If you are aged under 51 years you can also choose between two Backpackers policies: Globetrekkers Standard and Globetrekkers Standard Plus. These policies offer a budget option for anyone on a longer trip. The cheapest option is Globetrekkers Standard if you do not require cover for your baggage, personal possession, money etc.
Unlike most other provider, Globelink offers Travel Insurance even when you have already left home. You can buy an Already Travelling Policy if you have already started your trip, or forgotten to buy travel insurance, or if your policy has expired. This is subject to the total period outside of your usual country of residence within the EU not exceeding 18 months and also that no claim has previously occurred. For example, if you lost your camera yesterday, you can’t take out this insurance today and make a claim for it!
If you intend to do any Winter Sports while you are away, make sure you take out a Winter Sports Policy that covers the activities that you plan. This offers the same level of cover as Comprehensive insurance, but includes Winter Sporting Activities and Equipment cover. The “Winter Sports” package is available for Single, Annual Multi Trip and for every Area of Travel. This is available for persons up to 65 years old.
