As always, the information in this post is from one traveller to another. We aren't travel insurance agents. We have spent years abroad and have gotten to know the ins and outs of the industry, but if you have any travel insurance questions, please talk to a qualified travel insurance agent or broker. Finally, always consult your insurance policy since that is the legal document to which you are agreeing.

Whether you’re looking for student travel insurance for a short vacation, a gap year abroad, or even a volunteering adventure, there’s a policy that should cover your needs.

Tip: If you’re looking at longer term travel or a gap year abroad, check out our backpacking travel insurance review.
