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 : The staff were pleasant and helpful although I had to change the statement of particulars because closed questions were asked on the telephone and on seeing the statement it was clear that choices were not given on the phone eg have you held a licence for 10 year (reply yes but statement of facts required total number of years) same thing with engine size but sorted out in the end at an additional cost to myself.
Product : I believe that the insurance that I took out was very competitive compared to a few others that I had quotes from. I have not had the need to use it and hopefully I don't need to use it. I managed to get through to a real person and the service was good.

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.
