Do I need travel insurance for Africa?

Whether you’re off to Cape Town, South Africa or a week away in Morocco, it’s important you have your travel insurance sorted before you fly off on your trip of a lifetime.

Your holiday, no matter where you’re going in Africa, should be remembered for the right reasons. While we can’t promise nothing will go wrong while you’re seeing the world, we can help straighten things out if it does.

From stolen passports or flight delays, to a serious medical emergency needing to be flown home by air ambulance, going without travel insurance isn’t worth risking.

The government’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office recommends that you buy travel insurance for every trip you take abroad, including trips to Africa.

Isn’t it worth doing right?

Know before you go

Before you travel, always check:

  • The Foreign Office (FCDO) say it’s safe to travel to your destination.
  • Your destination’s government advice, safety guidelines and entry requirements.

Important: FCDO travel advice and travel rules issued by the government are two separate pieces of advice.
