Travel Insurance for Africa

Africa’s vast landscape hosts a wealth of fascinating animals from the great migrations of wildebeest and zebra to herds of gentle elephants. A safari is just one of the highlights from this enchanting area. Alternatively you might be heading to Cape Town to experience some of the fresh new world wines. Whatever you decide you want to discover in Africa we have a variety of cover to give you peace of mind while you are soaking up the experience.

We have Single-trip, Annual Select and Annual Prestige levels of Travel Insurance, which offer Worldwide excluding USA, Canada or the Caribbean. Or if you’re travelling for longer periods, you may want to think about our Gap/Backpacker policy – depending on what your plans are while travelling, you have various options which can be added, or removed to better suit your needs.

American Express understands that some of our customers when travelling to Africa will want to holiday for different periods of time – our Annual Select Travel Insurance policy allows up to 45 days per trip, to a total of 183 days which can be used within a year. If you’re thinking of travelling for longer durations, then our Annual Prestige Travel Insurance policy has the option of 90 or 120 days per trip, to a total of 240 days which can be used within a year.

It is important to note that it may not be advised to travel to all parts of Africa. If the Foreign & Commonwealth Office advises against travel for any reason we will not cover you for travel to these areas. If it is noted that you may go to a country for essential travel only, then you can be covered for this but it will not include anything in relation to the reason the FOC do not recommend you going to the country.  For guidance on where you are wanting to travel in Africa you can visit the FOC website.
