Hello all,

I’ve read through some of the Guide to Insurance thread but I just wanted to ping a quick thread out there for some travel insurance recommendations from fellow backpackers.

Brief trip summary: 6 months from June, worldwide excl. Canada/USA/Caribbean, no cruise/sports cover.

My friend works at STA Travel and is of course pushing their policy. Has anybody used this policy? (Around £250.)

Aviva unfortunately only offer annual policies (max. 31 days per trip).

Other options include Boots Longstay Silver (£130 ish), with most policies coming in at £2-300. The Post Office quoted £350.

Any recommendations/advice welcome! Thank you. grin
