what others say

it was very easy and helpful

Easy to follow web site, covers all the essential elements required for my forthcoming trip including re-patriation should it be required, which keeps my mum happy!!!

solid service, good response time & friendly staff

Great price and great cover! Easy to use and discover :)

Had responses to detailed enquiries about policy wording and specific cover scenarios - the rep had to ask the underwriters for me, but I got my answers. The upshot: I can get insured for kitchen and backstage theatre work! (with some limitations, but fine by me) This is more than some other backpac...

I both phoned and e-mailed Outbacker insurance and found both times staff were very helpful.

I needed quick cover for a trip to Cambodia for 11 months that I'm now on. I booked this cover on very little notice, but it was still very competitively priced, and knowing a bit about travel insurance, I can see it's a very honest and straightforward policy, and from reading other people's reviews...

Great and efficient service

Easy to find and specific to the trip

very easy to understand + apply for. reasonably priced

Great price for specific winter coverage with the ability to remove other extras.

Not purchased this kind of insurance before. Your rep was very helpful and informative. Thought the price was good value and covered most things.

Website was easy to navigate. Good prices and policies.

I was impressed the way your Company processed my application. I was able to do this as easily as my daughter could have done!

Excellent. I was taking out this insurance for one of my daughters, and had taken out the same cover for my other daughter a few weeks before.

I was impressed by the way your Company guided me - as a parent, rather than a nimble-fingered daughter! - through the Application process.
