A new travel insurance website is making it easier for gap year backpackers and travellers to compare travel insurance to determine the best price and cover for their requirements.
The price comparison site, leavingonajetplane.co.uk, is operated by veteran backpackers with extensive travel experience and represents a new resource for travellers who wish to explore the world.
The unique website helps individual travellers compare the different backpackers travel insurance and gap year insurance from major insurance companies as well as more specialist providers.
Comparing the top five UK insurance companies who offer backpacker travel insurance, Direct Travel, Downunder, Essential Travel, Endsleigh and World Nomads, the comparison website obtains the quotes for the traveller. All the traveller has to do is simply provide their destination and duration of trip.
Search results display the type of policy, level of cover, cancellation, baggage and price for each provider in an easy-to-view format.
The site creator and director of Leaving on a Jet Plane Matthew Coe said: “We also offer a personalised service where users can email us their trip details, and we will manually search the providers for them, making sure that all the details of their trip will be covered.”
