Travel Insurance for One Way Travel

It’s common not to have a return ticket booked for your trip, but not doing so can be quite tricky trying to find cover. Most Insurers require you to have a return ticket in order to purchase travel insurance cover, but don’t fret, we specialise in providing travel insurance without the need of a return ticket.

The period of cover can be anything from 1 day to 24 months and can be extended whilst you’re still travelling if required. We offer three great-value levels of cover – Budget, Standard and Premier – to suit your budget and the extent of the cover you require.

Some FAQ's:

Home visits are allowed if your policy duration is 4 months or more. There are no limits, you can come home as many times as you like, for as long as you like.

To add any of our Activity Packs, just follow the Quote form - to stage 3 - there you will find all of the optional extras.

Non-manual/clerical work is covered automatically with a Big Cat policy. So, there’s nothing you need to add to be covered for things like teaching, caring or nursing.

With the Activity Pack, we can also cover work of a more manual nature. This can include things like WWOOFing, partaking in community or wildlife based conservation work, charity based supervised building / renovation projects or other permitted manual work (defined below).

Cover is excluded for any activity that involves the use of industrial machinery (other than tractors) or non-domestic power tools.

Yes, bar work is automatically covered with all of our policies.

WWOOfing is classed as Permitted Manual Work, so with the Activity Pack, you’re covered.

(see above)

Means WWOOFing, fruit picking, casual farm work. Other Manual Work can be covered as long as it does not involve the use of plant/trade/industrial/agricultural machinery (other than tractors) or non-domestic power tools.

Please get in touch if you'd like to find out if we can provide cover for any light manual work you will be doing.

Decide Canada’s not for you, and want to return earlier than your full period of insurance?

Other insurers will tell you to wave goodbye to your money, but Big Cat lets you claim a partial premium refund for the unused time you didn’t stay in Canada.

 

How does the EARLY RETURN REFUND work?

Let’s say you buy a 24 month policy to cover your time in Canada. But after nine months, you decide that Canada’s not for you, and you want to return home. You may have invested a substantial amount for your 24 month Big Cat policy, most of which you’ll now no longer need. Unlike most insurers, Big Cat is happy to offer you a partial refund on the redundant portion of your insurance as a fair’s fair consolation.

 

How does Big Cat calculate the amount of EARLY RETURN REFUND?

We take the length of time of the original policy and subtract the actual amount of time you have used, and pay out the difference, deducting a £50 Cancellation Charge.

 

Are there other conditions that apply to my EARLY RETURN REFUND?

  1. We are not able to offer refunds to cover the first 6 months of the policy.
  2. No refund can be given on a policy where a claim has been made prior to the cancellation of your Big Cat  policy.
  3. You must be back in your home country and notify us by email of your wish to cancel the policy within 14 days of your arrival.

 

Can you give an example of how much I could receive back in my EARLY RETURN REFUND?

Say you took out a 24 month budget IEC policy costing £457.50, then you wish to cancel the policy after 9 months. Our 9 month policy costs £242.89. So we deduct £242.89 from £457.50 = £214.61.

Then we apply the £50 Cancellation Charge, refunding you a total of £164.61.
