KILROY has an agreement with ERV – one of the best travel insurance companies in the world. Whether you choose to let KILROY draw up an ERV travel insurance policy for you or you prefer another travel insurance provider isn’t the issue here. The main thing is for you to take out travel insurance!
Our Youth travel insurance is particular suited for young travellers and backpackers under 35 years of age. Please, do not travel without adequate travel insurance!
Here's a scenario
So you've broken your leg while hiking in the Andes. A local peasant has found you and let you ride on the back of his lama to his small house. After much trouble you manage to get him to understand that you want him to find the nearest village with a telephone and call for help. Who do you want him to call? The local police, who might be far away and too busy to make you their top priority right now? Your mum and dad back home who don't speak a word of Spanish? Or your travel insurance company that has a 24-hour service with skilled staff that speak different languages and who can quickly organize a search and rescue operation anywhere in the world?
Remember that travel insurance is not just about paying the bill - it's also about getting you out, be it by truck, boat, helicopter or lama and into a good and safe hospital.
To buy travel insurance, please visit your local KILROY website or one of our travel store.
