Whether you’re on a whistle-stop round the world ticket or taking a few months to relax and work from the beach, you’ll need to have a back-up plan if things go wrong.
That is why Leisure Guard offer specialist cover designed for backpackers, with two levels of cover to choose from.

Winter sports insurance is also available as an add-on for an additional premium and provides you with 21 days cover for skiing and snowboarding – both on and off piste.

Our policies are as flexible as your travel plans. Choose from two levels of cover, and tailor with useful add-ons – like excess waiver (so there is nothing to pay when you make a claim), winter sports insurance and cover for your gadgets.
All Leisure Guard policies include cover for coronavirus COVID-19. You will be covered for cancellation if you or a traveling companion test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days before you go, or for medical costs if you are diagnosed while you are away.
You will also be covered if you are travelling in Europe and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) travel advice changes for your destination due to Covid-19 (excluding cancellation and curtailment cover.)

Due to the national lockdown in place due to Covid19, it is now not permitted to travel other than for a few legally permitted reasons. For further information please check National lockdown: Stay at Home – GOV.UK. If you are travelling against lockdown regulations your policy will not be valid and claims are unlikely to be covered.
