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.
If you’re looking for that little bit of extra excitement and adventure on your backpacking trip then the obvious choice is our Adventurer Backpacker Travel Insurance, enabling 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 also offer optional upgrades to increase medical and cancellation cover and reduce excess.
We know that most backpackers like a mix of culture, sight-seeing and extreme activities. That’s why our Adventurer policy covers over 70 different adventure activities on offer to travellers across the world. White-water rafting, scuba diving, bungee jumping; if there’s something you want to try then have a look at our activities list to see if it’s covered. If not, check out our Pioneer policy (link to pioneer) or contact us to talk it through with a member of our team.
Knowing that most backpackers like to pack a digital SLR camera to capture the amazing moments of their trip or an iPad 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 £500 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.
