Insurance

When purchasing a Mixed School Group Work Experience package, an Internship Abroad or a Work and Study package, insurance is included in your package unless you ask to have it removed. (No discount in price is offered for removing the insurance policy.)

For Tailor Made Packages for Schools insurance can be included in your quote if you choose.

When accepting a policy through Blue Stamp Travel we request that you check that you are satisfied the policy provides sufficient cover and meets your personal requirements – particularly if you have pre-existing medical conditions.

Policies provided by Blue Stamp Travel provide cover for voluntary work experience placmeents (many ‘off the shelf’ travel policies would exclude work of any kind). If you would like to use your own travel policy when travelling and would like to remove this cover from your policy, please inform us at the time of booking. No reduction in the price of your trip will be made for removing cover where it is included as standard.

When booking an Intensive Language Course or Host Family Accommodation (with no work element) you have the option to request insurance to be added to your trip. Blue Stamp Travel can provide this for you with our insurance provider but you should satisfy yourself that the policy provides sufficient cover to suit your needs. We are not financial advisers and do not offer advice on insurance policies other than the policy we provide.

A policy is taken for each traveller at the time of the first deposit to ensure that cover is in place for cancellation. Any claims should be made within 28 days of return from your travel. Although it is not essential, it may help your claim to inform us if you intend to make a claim on your policy as the insurer may require extra documentation from us. In such instances we will endeavour to support your claim to the best of our ability or offer advice accordingly.

If you would like specific information about our Insurance cover please do not hesitate to contact the insurer directly.
