HI, i am looking for the cheapest quote for 12 months worldwide travel insurance for me and my girlfriend. The cheapest i have found so far with backage is £192 any tips/information would be perfect.

Please don't go with the cheapest you find - without reading the smallprint. Every GB broker 'Must', by law, have copies of the conditions of every policy they sell. If you're doing a RTW - read every word before you part with a single penny.
A broken leg in Mongolia, saving a fiver on your policy and having to fork out £500 cos your policy doesn't cover that type of break - can be the downfall of your dream trip, for the sake of a tenner.

If you want cheap search moneysupermarket .com and go with Infinity insurance, Alpha backpacker. I just did a search and it was £201.36 for a couple. I had this policy myself for a 12 month trip. I had to make a claim and they were always helpful plus I got the money that I was owed quickly and without a fuss.

The only problem I had was that It was difficult to find out how to contact them at first and then there was confusion over identifying my policy. It was frustrating, however we got there in the end. If you go with this policy make sure you know how to contact them and your policy number before you leave.

Agree with Redpaddy though, always read the policy wording thoroughly. You might not be covered for several things.
