Just as insurance is important to have when you are at home, it is also an important consideration when you travel. Participants in World Endeavors programs abroad can discover, however, that finding the best policy for international travel can be stressful and confusing. In order to make everything easy, World Endeavors offers one of the best quality travel medical insurance to every participant for every program we provide. Our program fees include travel and medical insurance which provide a number of benefits.

After you submit your application to go abroad with World Endeavors, your program advisor will talk with you about insurance coverage and ask if you have your own international insurance coverage (through your university, for example). If you do not, you will be enrolled in the World Endeavors insurance policy and offered coverage for the duration of your program.


*Exception: due to visa requirements, Intern in England and Intern in Northern Ireland program participants must secure other insurance. Please contact World Endeavors for more information.


Our insurance provides extensive coverage for accidental medical expenses, sickness, medical assistance, consulting, and monitoring, emergency medical transportation, prescription assistance, and repatriation.

In addition to health insurance, World Endeavors also provides a number of support services, including 24/7 assistance for a wide variety of emergency travel needs, such as emergency messages to family members, language interpretation services, emergency cash transfers, and travel document and ticket replacement services. Other valuable services include trip delay reimbursements if a trip is delayed for 12 hours or more, reimbursement for direct loss, theft, damage, or destruction of baggage, passport, or visa, payment for loss due to unauthorized use of credit cards, assistance locating doctors, and extended discounts at various retailers to help purchasing items needed for while traveling.
