Our entire range of policies is available to Australian, New Zealand and South African passport holders who are currently living in the UK, or EU. Aussies, Kiwis & Saffas Cover is for round trip journeys from your current country of residence in the UK, or EU and also for one way trips of up to 12 months duration and can be optionally extended to include Repatriation to your home country where medically necessary. The additional Repatriation cover must be included for one way trips exceeding 31 days.
We have no minimum residency period but you should get yourself registered with a GP in the UK, or EU as applicable with the local healthcare arrangements in place.
Our standard policies include cover for Repatriation to the UK, or anywhere you are currently resident in the EU where medically necessary. Passport holders of Australia, New Zealand or South Africa are given the option to extend the cover to include Repatriation to their home country.
Our policy will permit a one way journey to Australia, New Zealand or South Africa. However, if the duration of that journey exceeds 31 days, you must accept the additional cover for Repatriation.

We offer Already Travelling Insurance on the strict understanding that:
TRAVELLING AGAINST OFFICIAL ADVICE: Please note, should you decide to travel to a country in which your local Government, or for UK residents – the FCDO, advise against all, or all but essential travel, then there is no cover under any section of our policies
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.
