  Backpacker Travel Insurance

Are you under 35 and itching to explore the world? Then a backpacker travel insurance is the right insurance for you. Whether you're going on tour around the world, exploring exotic Asia, backpacking across Australia or road-tripping in the United States, our Backpacker travel insurance is tailored to your needs.

Unlike most policies that quickly become expensive for long travel, or annual travel insurance which only covers travel for up to 60 days at most, our Backpacker travel insurance is designed with longer trips in mind. A backpacker travel insurance can be bought to provide cover for up to 18 months, so there should be time to complete even the biggest adventure.

When you are far from home it's good to be fully covered should you get sick, have an accident or suffer other incidents. With over 60 years of experience in Backpacker travel insurance and assistance, Allianz Global Assistance is your partner on the journey. Whether it comes to illness, accident, delayed baggage, cancelled flights, theft or a lawyer, our alarm center is ready to help 24/7, wherever you are in the world. Safe travels!

*If you have an existing medical condition, or have recently undergone treatment, it may affect your insurance coverage. You can read more about this in the policy documentation.

If you choose to purchase a backpacker travel insurance from Allianz Global Assistance, you are sure to get the best help available. We have our own emergency centers throughout the world, which have a great local knowledge. We work with the best doctors and hospitals in the world, so you're always in the best hands.

Better coverage

Get great coverage wherever you travel

Previously, you could use the yellow health card when you were traveling in Europe. Today you will need an EU health insurance card to take with you when you travel in Europe. With the Blue Card you are only covered on an equal footing with the citizens of the country you are visiting, and risk paying part of the medical costs yourself.

If you are traveling around Europe, it is a good idea to check what help you can expect to get in the countries you plan to visit. There can be large differences between the individual countries' offerings. Medical fees are generally more common than in Denmark. With a Backpacker travel insurance you get great coverage regardless of where you choose to go.
