Whether you are travelling for 1 week or 6 months, travel insurance is an essential and compulsory part of your adventure. So, if you are releasing baby turtles in Sri Lanka, teaching in Cambodia or tracking the Big Five in South Africa, having adequate insurance in place will help you to enjoy your travels.

We have teamed up with Endsleigh to create an affordable and comprehensive travel insurance policy specifically for The Mighty Roar volunteers. You can be safe in the knowledge that you have full protection if needed and that our polices cover all of your volunteering activities.

You can choose between our Essential, Comprehensive, Close Encounter and Sharks cover with the only difference between the first two being that you are covered for greater amounts with the Comprehensive option. Obviously if you are volunteering on one of our animal specific programmes then please choose the correct policy.

If you would like to purchase your travel insurance through us then you can easily add this on when applying under the optional extras page. Alternatively, you can contact us today to add this onto your existing application

We recommend that you organise your travel insurance as soon as you confirm your place. This will ensure that your pre-departure cancellation starts from the day you are accepted and will cover you should you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason (such as illness).

You should ensure that your travel insurance covers you for the total duration of your trip i.e. from when you depart your home country to the day you return. Please note, our policies have a minimum age of 12 and are available to anyone up to the age of 65 – some cover is limited depending on age.

As with all-important documents, please ensure you read thoroughly through the policy wording and fully understand all concepts. You must make sure you disclose any conditions relating to health, as failure to do so, may result in your insurance being void.

Do I need travel insurance?
Having adequate travel insurance in place that covers all of your travel activities is a mandatory requirement when volunteering with us.

How long do I need?
You should ensure your policy runs from the day you leave home right through to the day you return. For example, if you are volunteering for 4 weeks you will generally need travel insurance that lasts 5 weeks – to take into account the days you are travelling.

When do I need it?
We recommend taking out travel insurance as soon as you have confirmed your place. This will ensure you are covered right from the start and you can take advantage of the cancellation policy if needed.

How do I book?
Booking could not be easier! Simply add when applying under the optional extras page or contact us to get covered today.

Which policy is right for me?
Unfortunately we cannot make any recommendations or provide advice with regards to travel insurance. Please ensure you read through each policy carefully and that all of the activities you are planning to do our covered.

I already have insurance in place, will this be sufficient?
Yes, as long as they cover volunteering activities. Most standard insurances with banks or yearly family policies do not cover extra activities like volunteering. Please double check with your travel insurance provider to ensure you are fully covered.
