Travel essentials 

For your big trip

From our comprehensive travel insurance and visa service to ISIC student discount cards, we can help with every part of your trip. Even the boring bits. Don’t leave home without these travel essentials.

Travel insurance

Our travel insurance is designed by travellers for travellers. So on top of the medical, legal and luggage cover that you’d expect from our policies, you’ll also find some inclusions that you wouldn’t. Such as access to medical advice from a UK based GP while you’re abroad, cover for over 100 adrenalin activities, and cancellation cover from the day you book.

Get your visa sorted

Visas are essential for any big trip! Sort out your visas before you go as lots of countries require one for entry. STA Travel can help you find out if you need one and make it easy for you to get. Plus if you want to work abroad on your big trip, we can sort your working holiday visas too.
