Online travel insurance provider: Cheap.co.uk has detailed that’s its cheap backpacker insurance policies have proved popular in the past two months.
A spokesmen for the company commented: “we find that around this time of year many students having just finished their exams are now looking at what options they have and what to pursue next. The backpacker travel insurance policy is slightly different to typical holiday insurance due to both the length of the policy and the types of activities the traveller may undertake, these bring different challenges and different risks.”
“For many, travelling is seen as a potentially life changing experience but they want to keep costs low as possible not having the chance to save up the thousands of pounds so backpacking is a viable option. There is a huge amount of experience to be gained from travelling and both Australia and New Zealand appear as popular options for the backpacker.”
Backpacking is considered a low cost form of independent travel with travellers carrying possessions in their backpack whilst making use of various hostels rather then hotels and using public transport. Many are also taking part in working travel, whereby the traveller works in various destinations to help fund their travel and lodging. For more information on backpacking please visit Wikipedia.
Cheap.co.uk provides a number of travel extras which includes travel insurance (from backpackers to annual travel insurance policies), airport parking, airport lounges, car hire and airport hotels.
