Although we don't have a specific backpacker policy, LV= travel insurance is suitable for a backpacking holiday.
If you're under 65, our single trip policy covers trips up to 366 days long and can be bought up to one year in advance of the trip start date*. You can also add optional baggage, personal belongings and money cover to your policy too, in case your things get lost or stolen while you're away.
*If you're 65 or over, we can cover trips up to 90 days. If you decide to return home before your cover end date, the cover will end.
If your backpacking trip involves different trips to and from the UK, then our annual multi-trip policy could be more suitable as it can cover individual trips up to 90 days long so long as you select our Premier level of cover and you are under 80 years of age.
