It’s the same time in South Africa as it is at home - but everything else is different. Five times the size of the UK, South Africa offers life-changing safaris, deserts, mountains, beaches, and even road trips. The port of Cape Town is famous for its food; Johannesburg has the museums that explain the history of apartheid and the remarkable archaeological site, the Cradle of Humankind. For those curious in making good wine, a visit to Stellenbosch or Franschhoek will quench your thirst...for knowledge.
Not least because it's so far away and unexpected costs can add up, comprehensive travel insurance to South Africa is strongly advised. Have a quick check of our cover levels and see which one is right for you.
Are you travelling exclusively to South Africa this year? Select "Worldwide exc. USA, Canada & the Caribbean" under area of travel. Depending on the length of your trip, Single Trip Travel Insurance may be the best option for you.
If you are travelling to and from the UK multiple times this year, then take a look at our Annual Multi-Trip Travel Insurance. You're covered for all trips made during a one-year period (up to 50 days each), and will save money compared to buying several single policies.
Emergency Contact Details: Dial 112 to be connected to the relevant emergency service.
Driving as a Tourist: You can drive for up to 12 months using your UK driving license in South Africa, after that you will need to apply for a South African driving license.
