Worldwide Travel Insurance

Worldwide travel insurance is substantially more expensive than European, especially for the over 65. Our Redwood travel insurance offers the cheapest rates available for travel to countries such as America, especially if the traveller is over 65 or intends travelling for extended long stays.

Definition of 'Worldwide'

When it comes to 'worldwide',  it doesn't mean what you may think in terms of travel insurance!

There are two options for worldwide travel insurance!

  1. 'Worldwide Excluding America' - which may extend to not covering Canada and The Caribbean

  2. 'Worldwide Including America' - which extends to covering the New World

Please note that even if you select option 2, the travel insurance policy will not usually cover you if you are traveling against FCO advice, if you are traveling for medical treatment or have a terminal prognosis. It is cheaper if you can select option 1.

Do I need 'world cover' if I am going to Australia?

Travel insurance for Australia is sometime cheaper - but you may be intending to stop over en route for a few days. Does this affect the premium?

The answer is: it might. Many long stay travel insurance policies specifically allow several days (up to 7 depending on the policy. Information on our backpacker travel insurance page gives a list of the policies we offer and the facilities for stopping over.
