There are many, many online insurance companies. It is a matter of finding a policy that will give you what you want at a good price. Remember, if you are doing anything they might consider risky, or if you have any kind of medical condition, you must tell them or they will not pay out.

Hi, that does sound like a lot to me!! I went to Australia for a year and used Holidaysafe travel insurance. I paid like £150 and that was for gadget cover etc. I didn't have to claim or anything, but they are definitely worth a try -snip-. Have an amazing trip :)
