Backpacker Travel Insurance with Covid-19 Cover

It has never been so important to have comprehensive and reliable backpacker insurance, especially when going away on long-term trips. For this reason, we have included several Covid-19 related benefits to our backpacker travel insurance policies to allow you to go abroad again with peace of mind as you had before.

Covid-19 cover includes:

  Medical expenses if you are diagnosed with Covid-19 abroad.
  Additional Travel or Accommodation Expenses abroad if you need to extend our stay due to a Covid-19 diagnosis.
  Cancellation cover if you are medically diagnosed with Coronavirus or personally instructed to isolate by the NHS (National Health Service) or medical professional.
  Cancellation cover if your travelling companions are medically diagnosed with Coronavirus or personally instructed to isolate by the NHS or medical professional.
  Cancellation cover if your close relatives are medically diagnosed with Coronavirus or personally instructed to isolate by the NHS or medical professional.
  No Cover for cancellation due to government travel restrictions or lockdown.
  The above cover would not apply for persons who are required to self-isolate without a positive Covid-19 diagnosis.
