Backpackers are exposed to high risks of accident and injury when abroad. While enjoying thrilling adventures and exploring off beaten-tracks, backpackers may be affected by illness or crime. To keep guard against such troubles, it is advisable to purchase a backpacker travel insurance policy before embarking on a holiday. Backpacker policies are an effective and cheaper alternative to a single trip travel insurance policy. These policies should at a minimum cover emergency medical cover, rescue and repatriation in case of medical emergencies, personal liability, holiday cancellation, and baggage cover. Some additional features that may be considered, depending on the holiday plans, may include ski and sports cover, for activities such as scuba diving, paragliding, bungee jumping and winter sports.
