Your questions answered

Can I get immediate cover?
Yes. Your Backpacker Travel Insurance can start immediately and we can email you the documentation so you can access it from wherever you are in the world. We’re so fast and flexible you could even take out your travel insurance on the way to the airport (although it’s not something we’d really recommend!).
Will my policy cover me for a round-the-world trip?
Backpacker Travel Insurance is designed for longer trips to a wide range of locations around the world, but it’s always best to double check with us that your policy covers you for where you’re going.
I’m planning a number of trips but none for longer than a month – do I still need Backpacker Insurance?
If no single trip exceeds 31 days it might be more cost-effective for you to take our Annual Multi-Trip Insurance instead.

We’re not the kind of people to try and pull the wool over our customer’s eyes. So we use Feefo, an independent third party company to collect feedback on every policy we sell (see below). This way, we get another view on how we’re doing so we can improve our service wherever possible.

So if you’d like to make a suggestion as to how we could do better, please use our contact us form and tell us about it.

MOTORHOME INSURANCE

Service rating : It is easy to take out insurance with Staveley until it comes to proof of mileage on the motorhome. I asked if I could give this over the phone they said no. I had to fill in the form which wasn't possible as I couldn't open it, Staveley Head couldn't open the forms I forwarded to them via email so I had to post copies, plus I enclosed a letter which included the mileage. I then received an email informing me that they needed the mileage and to ring up ?
The process should be a lot less stressful than this
Product : Well covered and reasonably cheap

BREAKDOWN INSURANCE

Service rating : All questions were answered. The offer of additional service that I may have needed for my type of vehicle where offered. And I accepted the European breakdown cover as we do go abroad. Lauren explained all the policy to me. And I was very happy to accept. What would be good is online form signing.as most companies are starting to use this. Would be a good addition to the service.
Product : Good price for European cover only hope I never need it

Product : no problem with the breakdown insurance purchase. However ,the renewal purchase process for the actual van insurance could be improved

Backpacker insurance is different to standard holiday insurance as it covers you for uninterrupted travel, rather than a maximum duration of 31 days.

What’s more, our Backpacker Travel Insurance products provide a comprehensive range of cover as standard. And you can add in extra cover if you’re planning on scuba diving or bungee jumping (see what we mean about Blackpool?!?).

Call us directly to complete your quote get protected – fast. We’ll even email your documents to you so you can access them from wherever you are in the world.
