Hey Lauriej,

Worldnomads is pretty good and cheap ( for insurance to Australia. Downunder insurance ( is also supposed to be ok, but I haven't used them before. There is also one on this site which is very affordable
( ) . Be sure to check the policies carefully to make sure everything YOU want covered is covered. The main thing to worry about is medical imo, so make sure there is plenty of coverage on that front (particularly if you are visiting the US at all!!). Good luck with it - it's a hard choice to make!!

Cheers, Peter

I found the BMC (british Mountaineering Council, to be by far the cheapest, and their cover was pretty foolproof too.
I'm pretty sure it's available to non-members.:)
