As a truly global organisation, we understand your desire to see the world.
We know that no matter how many travel guides you read, there’s nothing as exhilarating as embarking on a journey to discover and explore new corners of the globe. As international travel becomes increasingly accessible, more and more of us are packing up our backpacks and undertaking unique trips, to places we have only ever dreamt about.
Whether we’re travelling for adventure, escapism, self-discovery or out of simple curiosity, we know that part of the excitement is in not knowing exactly what lies ahead, throwing routine out of the window and leaving the ordinary behind us.
However, with our 60 years of experience, we also know that certain risks come with travelling to unfamiliar places and sometimes if things go wrong a long way from home, you can be left feeling very vulnerable. That’s why the support of a trusted friend is crucial. Our Backpacker Travel Insurance helps you not to worry whilst travelling, knowing if nothing else, that you are protected by one of the world’s leading travel insurance and assistance companies.
With over 13,000 people working across five continents, speaking 58 languages, we are as local as we are global. We have a deep understanding of the markets in which we operate and we are experts in helping our customers whenever they need us; 24/7, 365 days a year in the event of a medical emergency. If you are under 35 and planning a trip of a lifetime, our Backpacker Insurance offers bespoke protection for up to 365 days against risks such as cancellation, delays, missed departures, lost or stolen personal items and medical expenses. Terms and conditions apply.
