Do you have a holiday home in the sun that you like to escape to for months at a time? Are you planning an extended break to visit friends or relatives who live overseas? Are you taking a sabbatical to explore far flung destinations, sailing off on a round the world cruise or spending the season in a ski resort?

Wherever your travel plans take you, if you are off on a longer than usual trip then taking out travel insurance is a must.

Spectrum has built its Long Stay policy to give you the confidence that you have top quality protection for those unexpected events that may occur while you’re away from home for a prolonged period.

What Is Long Stay Travel Insurance?

Spectrum’s Long Stay policy is available to those who are off on a break of three months or more. You have the comfort of an emergency medical helpline which is available 24/7 should you find yourself with a medical issue in a foreign land and are not sure what to do. With multi-lingual operatives, this doctor-led team will be able to assess your situation and give you the reassurance that you’re receiving the right care at the right medical facility and be there to guide you every step of the way.

While you’re away if you plan to partake in sports and activities the good news is that Spectrum covers over 100 as standard. While if you’re planning to stay in a ski resort as a seasonaire you can also take out Winter Sports cover for extended trips in the snow.

Why Should I Choose Long Stay Insurance?

As with any type of trip it’s unfortunately the case that negative things can happen at any time that can affect your travel plans or mean you have to return home sooner than expected. What if you fall ill or become injured? What if you suffer a theft?

With a Spectrum Long Stay policy you have the peace of mind that you’re covered for multiple issues that could arise while you’re away from home for an extended break.

If you’re aged 45 and under Spectrum’s Gap Year policy may be more suited to your needs, especially if you’re planning to head away for more than 12 months. Or if you plan to travel up to 100 days take a look at Spectrum’s Single Trip cover.

I Have a Medical Condition – Can I Take Out Long Stay Cover?

We realise that you might be concerned about declaring a condition – whether it’s the fact that you don’t want to answer lots of questions, or you’re concerned about what the cover may cost. With Spectrum you don’t need to worry as we’ve made the process of declaring your condition as straightforward as possible as you can do so online or over the phone.

If you have a medical condition then it’s important to declare it when you take out your cover. That’s because if something happens that’s linked to your condition and you haven’t told us about it then it is likely that any related claim will be declined.

So don’t risk travelling without cover – get a quote today.
