Our backpacker insurance policies are perfect for anyone who is looking to visit at least one country over a number of months - from a single month all the way up to a year. You might be a gap year adventurer, looking for a long stay holiday or might simply be looking to take some time out, to explore the wonders that the world has to offer.

We understand that backpackers often have very different requirements to the average travellers. That's why our policies have been specifically built around these needs, meaning that you can be sure you are getting the best possible cover for your money.
