Hello everyone! I'm planning a multi-continent backpacking journey and I'm trying to figure out the best travel insurance for such an extensive trip. What should I focus on when choosing a policy for travel across various countries and continents?

For a trip that covers multiple continents, you'll want to look for a policy that offers worldwide coverage. Ensure that the policy doesn't have geographical restrictions and check how it handles visits to countries with higher medical costs.

Consider looking for a policy that includes coverage for a wide range of medical emergencies, including emergency evacuation. Since you'll be traveling to various places, it's crucial to have a flexible and comprehensive medical coverage.

That's great advice, thanks! Should I also be concerned about coverage for trip cancellations, delays, and lost baggage for such a long journey?

Absolutely. Given the length and complexity of your trip, it's wise to have coverage for trip interruptions, cancellations, and baggage loss or delay. It can really help in case of unforeseen changes to your itinerary or issues with your luggage.
