Insurance for hippohelpers

Insurance is rather boring and can feel like an unnecessary expense, but everyone should really be insured while travelling. Having a "mortgage" around your neck because of something unforeseen is never fun.

No matter if you're volunteering on a farm in Germany, taking a gap year exploring Asia, or are on an adventure holiday in South America, being insured will give you a peace of mind knowing that you're covered even if the worst should happen.

Finding a good insurance company involves a lot of work, so we've done some of the leg work for you, finding great deals for both European travellers, and those who travel from the rest of the world.

Please remember that I cannot offer advice on individual cases and that it's up to you to make sure that you buy the right insurance, so read all the policies, and also the fine print to ensure that you've got the right insurance for your needs.

Disclosure: Promoting travel insurance is how we can keep developing and maintaining the site. Nevertheless, these are two good insurance companies that will fit most hippohelpers.

Happy hippohelping!
