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.

platinum-single-trip
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!

gold-single-trip
Really good website, all details and steps are clear to use and see, really recommend this insurance company ��


platinum-single-trip
Perfect for travelers with the addition of having sports covered, which is something other travel insurance companies do not offer.


silver-single-trip
it was easy, fast and cheapest in the market. /it allowed me to have flexible dates which made it the perfect travel insurance for my uni placement year


platinum-single-trip
Very competitive and attractive policy - went for platinum package and included almost everything I wanted. Only criticism would be instead of adding every activity from the Activity B category, it would be good to be able to add individual activities as that would help give the best value.
