Student Insurance

Cover for Fees, Flights, Possessions, Accidents, Medical etc.

All for FREE!

English Today is proud to work with Endsleigh Insurance to bring automatic complementary  insurance, for fees, travel, possessions and medical requirements for each student and group-leader registered to study with us.  There is no extra charge to the individual and it is provided automatically unless the beneficiary requests cancellation.  The insurance is effective in 2 phases:

  • Cancellation cover, for fees and deposits made, is effective from the time of first financial commitment and we have all attendees names.
  • The remaining full cover starts as soon as the individual leaves home en route to English Today.

Cover remains effective until the student returns home, unless a break is taken in Europe between the end of the English Today course and the commencement of travel homewards.  If such a plan is intended, cover can be provided at extra cost from English Today.
