Students who study abroad are particularly vulnerable because under normal circumstances, they do not have easy access to funding when in a foreign country; and worse, they do not have the support system that a family or friend can provide in their own countries. With more educational opportunities being offered to people in all parts of the world, it is not unthinkable that the frequency of accidents and sickness would increase in proportion to the number of students.

The student travel insurance policy from Globelink International Ltd. is aimed at students on a tight budget but looking for comprehensive insurance without the frills. Choose from either Worldwide travel or Europe. Student Travel Insurance is available to people who are living in UK, EU and EEA countries.

Student travel insurance key benefits:

  • The best value for money
  • Most hazardous activities are covered as standard and higher risk activities can often be included for an extra charge
  • We help you to customise your travel insurance policy, so it suits all your needs. You can include selected options to your travel insurance policy: Extra Cover for Valuables, Extra Cover for Cancellation, Excess Waiver etc
  • Save money and time with Globelink booking Travel Insurance online

Attention! The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) could provide you with some emergency healthcare for EU countries, but it will not pay for Helicopter or stretcher rescue, repatriation costs, lost or stolen property, and it does not cover long-term medical treatment.

Student travel insurance has many types of coverage, the most popular of which are those that include payment of medical expenses from hospitalization and accidental death. Other non-life threatening coverage can also prove useful especially when the incident happens while en route to a particular country. This includes payment for a return trip and legal assistance, to name a few. In any case, an insurance coverage helps pay for any loss incurred if and when any untoward event occurs. A travel safety net ensures that rebuilding one's life after a fall wouldn't be a painful struggle.
