Longstay & Backpacker provide cover for single trip travel for periods from 1 month up to a maximum duration of 18 months.
For those wishing to break their trip midway, Longstay & Backpacker allows you to return home, say, at Christmas or Easter, for up to two trips, each up to a maximum 21 days per trip during the policy period. Cover is suspended during the period at home.
Longstay & Backpacker automatically provides for ‘stop-overs’ of up to 7 days maximum in a higher rated area e.g. travelling to New Zealand via the USA.
The standard excess can be reduced to ‘nil’ by paying an additional premium of £15 per person (£30 for Family cover).
