There is no such thing as a typical gap year. Whilst you are travelling you will no doubt want to experience lots of new things, gain new life experiences. To help fund your trip you may undertake a wide variety of work whilst you are away, from fruit picking in the Northern Territory through to working behind one of Cairn’s many bars.

BUNAC believes that safety and enjoyment are equally important when travelling abroad. It is therefore one of the terms and conditions of your booking that you have adequate insurance in place before you travel with us.

With so many different opportunities for you to explore and such a diverse range of roles that you could embark on, BUNAC has worked with Endsleigh to design a policy to cover the needs of a BUNAC traveller. Although you have the option to research and resource your own policy we wanted to create a policy that will provide you with cover that has been specifically designed to meet your requirements whilst on your trip with us.

To make sure that you start off on the right foot, our policy will cover over 100 sports and activities as standard including bungee jumping, scuba diving, trekking and white water rafting. The BUNAC policy will provide you with the flexibility you will need whilst you are away, the benefits includes:

  • The ability to purchase a policy from one day through to 2 years
  • You can return home for vacations without voiding your policy, for holidays and Christmas.
  • Take part in a range of non-manual or light manual work, paid or unpaid such as promotions and sales, chef, waitressing or even working on a cruise ship.
  • If you decide to travel further afield you can rest assured that your policy will cover you anywhere in the globe *
  • If you wish to stay abroad longer than originally planned, you can extend the original policy up to a maximum of 24 months.
  • In the event of a claim, we can guarantee that AXA assistance will be easy to call as they are located all over the world, operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are English speaking.
  • You will have cover while working and also whilst pursuing a wide range of outdoor activities.
