Hey,

I got backpackers insurance for 7 months with holiday safe.

Search for them in any search engine :)

Only cost me £64.00 and compared them with well known insurers like the post office etc and there was no difference at all!

Which ever company you choose make sure they are approved by the FSA...i think thats the right wording? (Financial Services Authority)

Have a good trip!!
