Essential Travel Insurance is a range of policies that will financially protect you against all of the most common mishaps for a reasonable price, giving you the opportunity to enjoy your holiday to the fullest.
Essential Travel Insurance offers you cover for Single Trips with the duration of up to 8, 17, or 24 days, or from 1 month up to 15 months at a time. These policies can be extended to a maximum of 18 months subject to no claims/medical problems. This range of policies offers necessary cover for the UK, EU and EEA residents as well as Australian, New Zealand and South African passport holders living in the UK of up to 89 years of age.
The cheapest essential policy is £ based on 1 adult aged up to 50 travelling in Europe (for up to 5 days per trip).
Attention! The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) / Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) provides some emergency healthcare within the EU, but it does not cover Repatriation costs, or a doctor or nurse escort home; nor lost or stolen property. You need Travel Insurance for that.!
Health is the most important but not the only thing that can let us down and ruin our holiday. Standard Essential Travel Insurance Policy will include the most crucial benefits. Cancellation, Travel Delay, Loss of Baggage, Documents and Valuables – these are the most common problems travellers face on their journey, and they are covered by Globelink Essential Travel Insurance.

Already Travelling? You MUST select ‘ALREADY TRAVELLING’ as your Type of Policy.
We offer Already Travelling Insurance on the strict understanding that:
There is a 48 hour waiting period from the date of policy issue before the insurance takes effect as a fraud prevention measure. New Claims requiring inpatient treatment which can be independently verified, can be made within the first 48 hours.
There is no 14 day cooling off period when you are already travelling, so no refund is available in the event you cancel your policy, or return home early.
