Is Morocco in Europe for travel insurance?

Morocco is a hugely popular mid haul travel destination for Brits. It’s usually only a four to five hour flight across Spain to Morocco. The country itself has an abundant amount of things to do.

Will my European Travel Insurance cover Morocco?

This question is often asked and there is really no straight answer because it will often depend on the insurance company themselves. The main rule is to ensure it’s actually listed when the insurance quote is for Europe. It is often displayed as Europe incl. Morocco, Egypt etc, rather than just being covered by Europe. You should aways check the small print and make sure the country is listed. Even some mainland European countries like Spain are not included! It’s always important to check the UK Gov travel advisory for Morocco too. Here is a list of travel insurers who will cover Morocco.

Gap Year Insurance for Grown Ups?

Taking a gap year was often only done by people who were between school and university. We then saw more graduates taking a gapyear before starting work.

Then more people who had been working for a few years starting taking gap years, even people in their 30s. In this day and age the gap year is reserved for anyone of any age. Even the retired are taking a ‘gay year’. It may not be a traditional one, but it will be a year away from their home country.

An issue when you travel is of course insurance. Medical bills can be sky high around the world, particularly in countries like the USA. It doesn’t matter if you are going for a week or a year, you will still need travel insurance.

Listed below are a number of UK travel insurance companies that will cover for longer periods than normal. In some cases there are no age limits too.

Don’t be put off the idea of a travelling at whatever age. Medical and health insurance is more widely available now. You just have to do your research and find it.
