Travel Insurance for a Working Holiday

Working on a gap year is an excellent way to gain valuable skills and experience a culture from a different perspective. Before you go ahead and grab your gap year by the horns, make sure you're covered for any work you plan to take on.

Professional Internships

There are numerous agencies specialising in securing work placements, accommodation and giving support to working 'gappers'. Remember though, these agencies expect you to organise your own travel insurance cover. Don't expect them to foot the bill in a medical emergency!

Pre-existing medical conditions

Unfortunately, some insurers do not provide working holiday insurance to those with certain pre-existing medical conditions. With Holiday Extras, you shouldn't let a pre-existing medical condition hold you back from applying for travel insurance. Simply tell us of any pre-existing medical conditions you may have at the booking process, and we will do our utmost to make sure you receive appropriate cover.

Avoid high excesses/inconvenient exclusions

These can be especially troublesome for a working 'gapper' abroad, as very often, your access to funds will be limited. Once again, the importance of reading through the policy wording cannot be over-stated. If you do need to make a claim for a work related incident or anything for that matter, you don't want to be faced with huge charges.
