Long stay travel provides you with the opportunity to really get to know the country you’re travelling in. Spending a longer duration in a country can allow you to learn the language, surround yourself in the culture, and stray further off the beaten tourist track to experience the real country and meet the people. ERGO offer a number of different Long Stay Travel Insurance policies covering a range of different long term travel options.

Long Stay Travel Insurance

For leisure trips we offer up to 3 months of cover, which also applies for over 65s as long as there are no pre-existing medical conditions. So if you’ve always longed to learn Italian cooking in Italy, or have wanted to visit relatives in Australia, this long stay travel insurance can allow you to do so.

Extending your ski or snowboard trips

If skiing or snowboarding is your passion and spending a season on the slopes is your idea of heaven, then our fantastic ski policies now cover you for up to 9 months on snow! You can choose your product level to suit your needs whether you want to get more experience on the slopes, head off piste, or even try heli-skiing.

Our Rookie, Adventurer or Pro products offer different levels of cover.

Seasonnaire Cover For Working Abroad

If you plan to work as a ski instructor, chalet host, or as bar staff you can get the cover you need with our Seasonnaire and Staff Seasonnaire Winter Sports and Ski Travel Insurance policies. These products have been created exclusively with the team at and can be accessed through their Seasonnaire Ski Insurance Page.

Gap Year Backpacking?

ERGO also provide long stay travel insurance in our backpacker travel insurance policies which can cover you for up to 366 days. So if you’re planning on taking a year out to travel the world and experience new cultures, meet new people, and see new places, then this gives you the freedom to do so. This policy also covers you for a range of activities but you can upgrade your cover if you are one of those people who want to skydive in New Zealand, scuba dive in Australia or bungee jump in South Africa!


I was very impressed by the level of service.

They beat the competition by a country mile! Super happy and will most certainly be buying insurance with them again.
