Travel insurance for backpackers, adventurers and holiday makers

Yeah yeah, we know, we probably lost you at the word "insurance". We’ll keep this quick…

As well as the medical, legal, luggage and cancellation cover you'd expect from our travel insurance; you'll also find some inclusions you wouldn't. Like cover for over 100 adventure activities, the flexibility to extend and upgrade your policy on the road, and included cover to work, study or volunteer abroad.

So whether you're a backpacker, serial weekender or family of downhill skiers, we’ve got it covered.

Travel Insurance for backpackers, adventurers and holidaymakers

adventure travel insurance

Say no to activity add-ons and 'hell yeah' to adventure!

Brits are 82% more adventurous when they travel

This is what we love about travelling - we (mostly) become freer, braver and altogether more adventurous human beings; instantly willing to bungy jump off bridges and parachute out of planes!

While most insurers will make you add activities to your policy before you leave (not very spontaneous really, is it?) we cover over 100 sports and adrenalin adventures as standard.

And because we include activities from the everyday to the extreme, from swimming to skydiving, you'll never have to stop to think before you jump. Or be that dude that's always left behind to look after the cameras because they weren't insured. Not cool Dave, not cool.

clever cover

24/7 help and more inclusions, as standard

48% of people don't realise that without insurance, they'd be liable to pay for their own medical bills abroad

As travellers, we're programmed to think on the brighter side of life. But should the unexpected happen, then you'll need insurance that's smart, trusted and reliable. That's why our cover has the following:

  • 24/7/365 help - A 24 hour medical helpline with multi-lingual staff that will talk to the hospital and doctors for you
  • Cancellation - For peace of mind from the day of purchase until the start date of your policy, you’re covered for cancellation (within the conditions of the policy)
  • Bespoke cover - Choose from 4 levels of cover plus specialist options for sport trips, winter sports and studying abroad.

flexible cover

Flexible policies which you can extend or upgrade

If your plans change, your policy can too. We have single trip policies that allow you to take a trip home if you need, and our Premier policies excluding North America even let you have a short stopover in the USA for free.

  • Extend - Extend your policy as many times as you like up to 24 months - perfect for accidental gap years.
  • Upgrade - Unexpected urge to stay on and swim with great white sharks? Upgrade your policy when you extend it.
  • Ooh, chilly - We'll automatically give you 7 days free winter sports cover, but if you need more, add on extra weeks before you go and use it whenever you like.

Because it's not always about holidays

Because our customers aren't ordinary (and we mean that in the nicest possible way), nor is our insurance. So if you're not in it for the sun loungers and margarita marathons, then we also cover the below:

  • Working holidays - Up to 24 months cover for working holiday visas in Australia, New Zealand and Canada; including farm work and winter sports add-ons for ski seasons.
  • Study abroad - Unlike regular single trip policies, return home up to three times with our Study Abroad insurance.
  • Students - Cover if you need to cancel your trip to re-sit exams; plus specialist Medical Elective cover.
  • Volunteers - Our insurance covers recognised volunteering projects working with animals, children and communities.
