Travel the world with backpacker insurance
Whether you’re studying, volunteering or working abroad, our backpacker policy covers the majority of situations as standard.
It can be expensive if something happens while you're away and you don't have travel insurance. If you plan on travelling the globe, it’s a good idea that you get backpacker travel insurance.
Why backpacker insurance?
Backpacker insurance is helpful whether you’re a student on a gap year, volunteering overseas, on a career break or are an inquisitive globetrotter.
Should you need to go home during your trip, you can return to the UK once for up to 14 days during your cover, without cancelling your policy.
You could be carrying a lot of high value possessions with you when you set off on your trip. If those items are lost or stolen you’ll need the right insurance to make a claim if anything goes wrong.
Peace of mind
If you have any medical concerns during your trip, you can put your mind at ease knowing you have unlimited medical expenses cover and an online doctor available while you’re in another country.
Our cover is tailored to your individual needs, so you can decide how comprehensive you’d like your backpacker insurance to be.
Being away from home for a long period of time can be both exciting and daunting; but we only want you to feel excited on your travels.
Make sure to read the policy documents to ensure you have complete peace of mind during your travels
