How have your Travel Insurance needs changed since the 1996? What are your top Travel Insurance Policy choices?
Did you know that you get over 1 BILLION hits if you Google search ‘Travel Insurance’?
That’s why we are immensely proud that November 2019 marks our 23rd Birthday and we are still going strong – THANKS TO YOU!
In November 1996, Globelink was born to proud founding Director, David Deverson, in a bid to provide cost effective, quality travel insurance with a friendly, personal service to customers. Principles still at the heart of our business today.
1996 also saw the birth of Dolly the Sheep - the first mammal successfully cloned from a human cell, and The Spice Girls' debut single, Wannabe!
We’ve achieved a lot since then….
You’ve travelled from Katmandu to John o’ Groats. You’ve skydived, scuba dived, potholed and parachuted. Luxury travelled on the Orient Express and budget travelled on bikes and buses - and we’ve been proud to sort your Travel Insurance needs.
You told us you need Already Travelling Insurance and you’ve now got it. Whether your teenage kids have already trundled off on their travel trek; or your globetrotting gran forgot to grab cover; or you simply had a trillion travel tasks to remember - we can sort it with Globelink Already Travelling Insurance.

So how have your Travel Insurance needs changed since the 1996? What are your top Travel Insurance choices?
The ‘90’s were all about that once a year, two week trip to Europe.
23 years later, in 2019, you’ve literally pushed the boundaries to the ends of the earth.
You now like to travel further; more often; and for longer. You also travel more the older you get. Who can blame you?
Travel destinations are now much more evenly split across Europe, Asia and the Americas. Locations that only the most intrepid of you dared venture in the ‘90’s are now firm favourites, including Cambodia, Vietnam, Peru.
