What is Globetrekkers Standard Plus Travel Insurance?

Packed your rucksack and keen to see the world? Do you need Travel Insurance? Yes definitely! It’s tempting to save the cost, but you’ll be wishing you hadn’t if you need emergency medical treatment and don’t have the cash to pay for it; or don’t speak the same language as the doctor? What happens if you arrive in your dream destination, but your backpack doesn’t? Globetrekker Standard Plus will have all these challenges sorted.

This policy is ideal for people aged up to 50 years old travelling for a while or backpackers and globetrekkers. Globetrekker Standard Plus Travel Insurance (from €) gives you excellent Emergency Medical Expenses cover, plus the added protection of Baggage cover Money, Passport, Personal Accident and Legal Expenses Cover

Travel worldwide with our backpacking travel for up to 15 months at a time. Usually there’s the option to extend it up to a maximum of 18 months.

Globetrekkers Plus Policy Key Benefits

  • Available to EU and EEA residents
  • Trekking to altitudes of up to 3500 metres for free
  • Over 50 Pre-Existing medical conditions covered
  • 100 Adventure Activities for free and higher risk activity options for an extra charge
  • Low excess & great cover
  • €5,000,000 Emergency Medical & Repatriation cover
  • €1,500 Baggage cover
  • 24-hour Medical Assistance


The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) / Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) provides some emergency healthcare within the EU, but it does not cover Repatriation costs, or a doctor or nurse escort home; nor lost or stolen property. You need Travel Insurance for that.


Globetrekker Standard Plus Travel Insurance provides the added security of Personal Accident and Legal Expenses cover as standard. Plus cover for your Personal Money, Passport and Baggage for a great low.

Stay active and adventurous on your trip while staying safe and secure knowing we’ve got you covered.

Looking to bungee jump, scuba dive, swim with dolphins, or more? Check our adventure activity list so you’re covered while trying out a new, or an old favourite activity. Globetrekker Standard Plus covers 100 Adventure Activities for free. Additional higher risk activities can be covered at an extra charge, so check our Activities lists or call us if you don’t see the one you need and we will see if we can help.

Add an Extra return home option to your policy, so you can press the pause button on a Long Stay Trip.
