If you’re heading out to see the world (or at least a chunk of it), you have an invaluable experience lying ahead of you which will stay with you for a lifetime. You’ve saved up some money, set out your itinerary… and chances are that, now your departure is drawing near, you’ll want to allow yourself the time to take it all in.
This is when the ever-important backpacker travel insurance makes its entrance.
Some of you might think, indeed, that a single trip policy will be sufficient to keep you covered for accidents and eventualities for the duration of your travels. However, what you might not be aware of is that a single trip insurance package has an ‘expiry date’ – and will most likely run out while you’re still drinking cocktails on a beach in Thailand or road tripping through the plains of Oz.
With proper backpacker travel insurance, however, you can adjust your policy to cover the entire length of your trip – whether your adventure lasts a few weeks or even up to 6 months.
