Whether you’re going on a gap year or island-hopping between jobs it’s imperative to make sure that you have appropriate travel insurance to cover you. At InsureandGo our backpacker policies can cover ages 65 and under, and we consider people with all medical conditions, so you can explore the world with peace of mind.
Backpacker travel insurance is unique in that it can cover you for up to 18 months at a time, while annual (or multi-trip) insurance has a limit to the length of any individual trip that you can take during a 12-month period. This could make backpacker insurance the ideal choice for those who want to spend an extended period of time travelling the globe or living abroad for a few months.
Backpacking abroad is a holiday that takes a more flexible route. You’re more likely to stay in hostels than hotels, travel on more public transport and visit more places off the beaten track. This type of travelling means that you and your belongings are exposed to a higher level of risk than standard holidaymakers. So while most travel insurance policies cover things like accidents, illness, loss of belongings, theft, cancellations, delays etc., backpacker insurance tends to cover all of that and more. Our backpacker insurance lasts up to 18 months and covers you for some extras unique to your holiday.

We understand that insuring a medical condition can be a little frustrating if you’ve had trouble getting covered with other insurers in the past. Getting the right insurance cover becomes especially important when you go backpacking with a medical condition so make sure that you always declare any pre-existing conditions you may have (such as asthma or diabetes) for the best support.
At InsureandGo we consider all medical conditions. Simply get a quote online and go through our simple medical screening process.
