We know backpackers are an adventuresome sort, which is why we offer
cover for more than 60 different activities and sports. But don't be

covered, we'll likely be able to offer you the extra cover you need for
an additional premium.

problem. If you have a computer and access to the Internet, you can
modify your policy right online. (via e-mail to our office) There's no need to worry about changes;

than those two exclusions, feel free to take some temporary employment

but you will not need to set money aside to protect yourself against a
future claim. That’s peace of mind a lot of our backpacking customers
