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.
