working holiday travel insurance

When it comes to backpacking trips, many travellers choose to work whilst abroad so they can help to fund their adventures. This is why we cover a wide range of jobs, as standard, through our work abroad insurance policies. This is just part of our travel insurance offering - we also cover you for all the important stuff too - from medical cover to lost baggage, uninhabitable accommodation issues and forced trip cancellation.

Our policies provide cover for a range of different types of manual and non-manual work, including bar, retail, clerical and admin work amongst others. With Outbacker Insurance you can be sure that you will be covered both whilst working and also enjoying yourself. Whilst we cover over 100 sports and activities as standard, we also offer you the option to cover yourself for more with our extreme sports & activities cover.

what others say

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.

Very easy to use - clear as it what is and is not covered. Very reasonably priced as well

Seemed simple enough to get a quote and personalise it to my own requirements. Best price I found for what it offers

Cheap and gives you what you need

Very simple to use website

Great, no problems, payed out when I had flight issues

It's difficult to rate an insurance fore actually going on the trip. However, the qualities included in the policy look great and if I have to claim on the insurance, I hope it is as good as it says it is!

This is fantastic value and very easy to purchase, very pleased will recommend to others.
