Three levels of cover to choose from – you can choose Backpacker, Longstay or Longstay Plus cover. Recognising that backpackers only require essential covers, Backpacker provides cover for cancellation/curtailment, personal possessions, emergency medical expenses, personal liability and personal accident. Longstay & Longstay Plus provides higher limits and additional cover for departure delay, missed departure, possessions delayed in transit, personal money & travel documents and legal advice & expenses.
Return home at no extra charge! – for those wishing to break their trip midway, the insured can return home, say, at Christmas or Easter. The policy provides cover for up to two trips home (maximum 21 days per trip) during the policy period.

Other activities may be covered under Activity Packs 2, 3 or 4 on payment of an additional premium. See Underwriting Guide for further details.
