Our Outbacker product range has been designed to reduce the price of travel insurance without cutting down on the cover.

We do this by not accepting travellers over the age of thirty-nine. You wont have to subsidise the premiums of those who may be more of a risk as you do on some other policies. (the elderly don't subsidise your motor premiums, why should you subsidise their travel!) In addition we do not have the high costs of a call centre; our policies are only available direct, online, meaning we can pass these savings on to you.

We have made the site simple to navigate and you will find that the products can be easily understood with no hidden small print. However should you experience any problems during your purchase there are instant contact buttons, which allow you contact one of our experienced operators who will assist you with any questions or queries that you may have.

The Outbacker Travel Insurance policies have been specially conceived for the young backpacker who wants a hassle free purchase enabling them to insure and go worldwide, including travelling through the USA or Europe, knowing that they are covered for most eventualities. You are automatically covered for 100+ sports and activities as standard on all our travel insurance policies. Winter sports are also available as an optional extra.
