Longstay travel insurance at World First

Longstay travel insurance to make great gap year memories

Everyone is taking time out these days. And why not? If you have the chance to take an extended stay in Spain, a long winter break or even a year out to explore the world, we say go for it. Everyone is taking a 'grey gap year' these days!

No matter how old you are, where you are going or what you plan to do when you get there, we salute you. We know that taking time out to travel the world means taking in new experiences, enjoying new scenery and meeting new people. It's enriching and exciting. But it can also mean leaving your comfort zone and stepping into the unknown. We'll be right there with you.

Our Longstay policies offer you flexibility and choice and, of course, that vital safety net if things go wrong. We'll cover you if you go away for up to 18 months, are up to 65 years old, and want to take part in all manner of exciting sports and activities. We can even cover you if you need medical travel insurance. We cover thousands of conditions and were the first travel insurance provider to offer cover for people travelling with HIV.

And we do it all at a price that's fair.

To find out more, call us on 0345 90 80 161, or read on for more details on our policy benefits.

Sports and activities

No trip would be complete without a few adventures. That's why our Longstay policies offer automatic cover for over 75 sports and activities. These include scuba diving (up to 30 metres), bodyboarding and camping as well as hiking and jet boating. But if you are a real thrill seeker we cover almost anything you can think of for an extra premium. Call us on 0345 90 80 161 to find out more or get a quote now.

Don't let your medical condition hold you back

Our travel insurance policies allow many thousands of people to travel with medical conditions every year. In some instances we have made travel possible for people who could not find affordable cover elsewhere. So, whether you have been undergoing treatment for cancer, have suffered a stroke or are living with HIV, we won't hold you back.
