backpacker travel insurance

If you're looking to head on a backpacking adventure and are looking for a backpacker travel insurance company you can trust, why not try Outbacker? Our travel insurance is specifically tailored towards the backpacker travel market, so you can be assured that our products have been designed with you in mind.

Our standard travel insurance covers you for all the most important potential incidents you could encounter whilst abroad. These include loss of personal belongings (including your passport and money), baggage loss, forced trip cancellation, missed departure, uninhabitable accommodation and up to £10,000,000 of medical expenses if you need emergency medical treatment, dental treatment or/and repatriation to the UK.

We offer additional sports and adventure activities cover on top of our standard backpacking insurance product for an additional premium. Although we do cover over 100 adventure sports & activities as standard, we do understand that some backpackers are looking for a more extreme adventure experience. We've made things really easy and grouped all our additional activities and sports into two groups - B and C, with C containing more extreme sports such as black water rafting and water ski jumping. You can find more information by visiting the Sports & Activities page.
