Thinking of staying away longer? If you need to extend your insurance whilst away you can, but your entire trip can only be a maximum of 18 months. Simply contact our friendly Customer Services Team and they will be happy to process this for you.

If you haven’t booked your return ticket home yet, we can still cover you as long as you show intent (e.g. a place on a university course, etc.) to return to the UK. If you’re unsure, please contact our Customer Services Team.

**When using the return home extension all cover is suspended on clearance of customs in your home country and restarts after the baggage check in at your international departure point for your return flight, international train or ferry to your overseas destination. This extension will not cover the costs of your return home.

*Backpacker & Longstay Travel Insurance – pricing based on an 35 year-old travelling around Europe excluding Spain for three months

Please note, Holidaysafe’s online prices automatically include a 15% discount against our Customer Service Centre prices.
