BEST BACKPACKER TRAVEL INSURANCE

Backpacking and travel insurance go hand in hand and it's something you have to get no matter whether you think you'll be alright. We've been on three around-the-world backpacking trips together and have always taken out insurance with World Nomads. It's got us out of loads of expensive situations, like when Steve was airlifted out of our trek to Everest Base Camp and when Annie stepped on a sea urchin in Sri Lanka and had to be operated on!
