Our 24 Hr Assistance Provider will arrange an emergency return to your home country if its medically necessary.
Our entire range of Travel insurance policies include cover for Repatriation to your home country within the EU if it is medically necessary. All of products are available to Australian, New Zealand and South African passport holders who are currently living in the UK and EU. If you are from Australia, New Zealand or South Africa and would want to be Repatriated back to any of these three original home countries, you can add this extra cover.
Cover is for round trip journeys from your EU country of residence and also for one way trips of up to 15 months duration and can be optionally extended to include Repatriation to Australia, New Zealand or South Africa where medically necessary.
The additional Repatriation insurance cover must be included for One Way trips exceeding 31 days. We have no minimum residency requirements but we strongly recommend that you get yourself registered with a GP so you have access to local healthcare arrangements in place while you live in the EU.
Globelink travel insurance covers you for Emergency Repatriation back to your country of residence in the UK, or EU as standard, however, at step 3 you may extend the cover for Repatriation to Australia, New Zealand or South Africa if medically necessary. So if you are an Australian, New Zealander, or South African currently living in the EU, but during your trip, you would prefer to be repatriated back your original home country if medically necessary, then add this Extra option.
If you die while on your trip, the policy will pay funeral expenses abroad plus the cost of returning your ashes, or the cost of returning your remains home.
If you need to be returned home, it could cost you many thousands of pounds, unless you are adequately insured. Here are a few examples:
If you have a good quality insurance policy, you should have access to 24 hour emergency assistance which can help you in the even of an emergency. If you become ill or injured, you or your travel companion should contact them immediately, or ask the hospital staff to do so. The assistance provider provides multi-lingual support and can agree a treatment plan with local doctors, arrange direct payment of medical bills and help to organise any necessary additional travel and accommodation expenses for your travelling companion. Also if its medicaly necessary, they can arrange an emergency repatriation; and / or arrange a repatriation when you are well enough to return home if you have missed your scheduled return date. This can include medical escorts as medically required.

Already Travelling? You MUST select ‘ALREADY TRAVELLING’ as your Type of Policy.
We offer Already Travelling Insurance on the strict understanding that:
There is a 48 hour waiting period from the date of policy issue before the insurance takes effect as a fraud prevention measure. New Claims requiring inpatient treatment which can be independently verified, can be made within the first 48 hours.
There is no 14 day cooling off period when you are already travelling, so no refund is available in the event you cancel your policy, or return home early.
