What does long-stay travel insurance cover?
Long-trip travel insurance covers you for the exact same things as a standard travel insurance policy - only for a longer duration of time.
This includes the basic things, such as:
- Personal Accident
- Medical and Repatriation Expenses
- Mobility Aids
- Baggage Loss
Depending on the provider, you might also get a wide range of other areas covered. For example, some of the providers we’ll recommend offer cover for travel documents as standard because the risk of losing or misplacing these when away for a long time is higher.
You’ll also be able to add optional extras to your policy, as you can with our single trip cover and multi-trip policies. These extras include:

Can I add cruise cover for a long-stay policy?
Yes, you can add cruise cover to any of our insurance policies so long as the duration of your cruise can be covered. To do this, simply add cruise cover and proceed through to our quote comparison tool as normal.
Can I get long-stay insurance if I have a pre-existing medical condition?
We specialise in helping people get medical travel insurance. When you look for a quote, you’ll be given the option to declare your own, or your travelling companion’s conditions and get a quote tailored to your situation. This way, if you have a medical emergency whilst travelling, you don’t need to worry about juggling medical bills with getting better.
As well as declaring current medical conditions, our simple medical screening will ask you about past diagnoses and prescribed medication to ensure you’re getting a quote that’ll leave you fully covered.
There is a chance that your medical condition might affect your premium, especially if you’re travelling to a country with private healthcare (such as the USA) where returning home would cost a lot.
What to consider when going away for a long trip
One of the main things to consider when going away for a long time is whether you might need to amend or upgrade your home insurance policy. If you are leaving your property empty during your trip, you’re existing policy might not cover you and so finding out is essential.
You should also strongly consider value over cost. You might find cheap quotes enticing, but it’s always sensible to favour the policy that has the best cover over the policy that costs less.Get a quote

Frequently Asked Questions
A pre-existing condition is a diagnosed medical condition that existed before taking out a policy. We'll ask a series of questions about the medical history for you and any travellers on your quote. If you answer yes to any of these, you will need to tell us about the traveller's conditions. This could be a condition that a traveller has now or has had in the past. If you are not sure what conditions you need to declare, we have online support available to help you 24/7!
