I am in the uk and I need travel insurance for 18 months to cover me on a rtw trip. I have been quoted 550 quid by sta travel, which i think is way too much. Does anyone know where i can try on the net????????????????????????

I found World Nomad´s basic backpacker insurance competitive, and you have the option to cover extra items if you want.

World Nomads is really cheap compared to all the others I have seen, but it's only any good for those who do not have any pre-existing medical conditions. If you have a pre-existing medical condition especially if you'll have heaps of expensive medication with you, forget about using world nomads because they wont cover any of the medication if that gets stolen, even if you have no problems health wise. I read something yesterday or the day before where someone had been fighting to get a cheque from World Nomads for many months. So it make me wonder if they are exactly reliable.

You should go to http;//thorntree.lonelyplanet.com
They have a similar question asked every single day at least once and if you do a past post search in the GAP year/RTW Travel branch you'll find posts with any answer you'll possibly get from people on here.
