Frequently Asked Questions
Backpacker insurance is a form of travel insurance that is designed to protect individuals whilst backpacking around the world. In most cases, it will cover the costs of emergency medical treatment and repatriation, plus more.
Our Sports Travel Insurance Policy provides up to £2,500 worth of baggage cover. You should, of course, be sensible and act as though you weren’t insured at all times. This means keeping your valuables, such as cash, phones or tablets on your person at all times, rather than leaving them unattended in a tent, or in a hostel dormitory. But if the unexpected does happen, you would have the reassurance of being able to claim under the policy.
Yes, our Backpacker Travel Insurance can generally be taken out even if you have a medical condition. We can almost always offer cover at no extra cost, but occasionally our underwriters may apply special terms if you subsequently needed to make a claim relating to your condition.
You can purchase our Backpacker Travel Insurance online up until 74 years old. Above this age, you would need to call us on 01494 484800 and we will be able to refer your quote to our underwriters. Please note, our quotes are based on your age at the start date of cover.
