What is Essential Travel Insurance?

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).

Essential Travel Insurance Key Benefits

  • No hidden costs and low excess levels
  • Large number of Pre-Existing Medical Conditions that are covered for free, so you do not need to pay extra for Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and many other conditions, so long as you have had no related complications. 
  • Trekking to altitudes of up to 3500 metres for free

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.

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.
