Why Switched On Backpacker Insurance?

We realise that when you’re organising a trip of a lifetime there are so many more interesting things to be thinking about - all the sights you want to see, the must-visit places, the experiences, the food - that travel insurance certainly won’t be at the top of your list of items to arrange.

But once you’ve booked your trip that’s the perfect time to get your Backpacker Insurance sorted. Insuring your extended trip really will give you, and your loved ones back home, complete peace of mind. No matter what the emergency, being protected with a Switched On policy means you’re just seconds away from a worldwide network of assistance specialists, that will ensure you have the best care and support when you need it most. And no surprise medical bills to find the money for either!

Our backpacker policies cover adventurers aged between 18 and 65, and if you fancy partaking in a few sports and activities on your travels we include over 50 automatically. You can tailor your policy to include more extreme pastimes, and to protect those all-important gadgets too. Plus our policies protect you if you decide to work whilst abroad, and if you need to return home during your trip you can do so without invalidating your cover.
