Thousands of Aussies get bitten by the travel bug each year, leaving with nothing but a backpack to explore all the locations and cultures the world has to offer.
Going overseas can be a life changing adventure full of new found friends, food and experiences. From the hectic buzz of Bangkok to the wonders of Peru, there are few limits to where you can go when all you take with you is what you’re carrying.
But before you make a list of what to pack in your backpack, take the time to organise insurance to protect yourself and your valuables whilst you travel. Our backpackers travel insurance is simple and flexible and may provide cover for even the most adventurous travellers. Whether you’re travelling the world for a year or planning shorter backpacking trips, Fast Cover can provide cover for the things that matter most.*
