Backpacking is all about seeing new cultures, trying new things and meeting new people. Backpackers love taking opportunities to venture off the beaten travel track and experience something different, embracing the country you are travelling in and making the most of all that is on offer.


Backpacking Insurance

If you’re looking for that little bit of extra excitement and adventure on your backpacking trip, then the obvious choice is one of our Backpacker Travel Insurance policies. We provide cover that enables you to say yes to those once in a lifetime opportunities you’ll be offered whilst travelling.

Designed for you by people who love to travel, our Backpacker policies ensure that the most important aspects such as emergency medical treatment, cancellation and loss of personal effects are covered. Our Backpacker policies offer three levels of cover to increase medical and cancellation cover and reduce excess as well as optional upgrades to cover your Gadgets, Winter Sports and Rental Vehicle Excess Waiver.


Culture, Sights & Activities

We know that most backpackers like a mix of culture, sight-seeing and extreme activities. That’s why our Backpacker policy covers a number of different adventure activities to travellers across the world. These include white-water rafting, scuba diving (up to 30 metres), bungee jumping. If there’s something you want to try then have a look at our activities list in the policy wording to see if it’s covered. If an activity is not listed, please contact us to talk it through with a member of our team.


Additional Gadget Cover

Knowing that most backpackers like to pack a digital SLR camera to capture the amazing moments of their trip or an Tablet to help them plan where to go and which hostel to stay in next, with our all our Backpacker Insurance policies we offer optional cover for two ‘gadgets’ worth up to £750 each. With WiFi available in even some of the remotest locations in the world, they’ll be no excuse for not updating your blog, uploading your photos and making everyone back home a little envious of your trip.
