Default IEC: Insurance Companies

Which companies can offer a Valid Insurance policy for the Working Holiday Visa???

Bunac recommend Endsleigh, but the quote is shocking at over £400.

Any others which offer a much more competitive price

These are my quotes so far based on me being 30 for 12 months backpackers insurance, if you fall into the younger age bracket it may be cheaper. I'm tempted to just go with the cheapest option as I should be eligible for health coverage in ontario after 3 months residence.

Cheaper is not always the same or better. Look for restrictions, check out how readily they pay out if you claim. Saving £200 to then find you have to pay £500 for something that is not covered by one firm and is by the other, or the deductible is higher from one to another, could prove to be a false economy.

Look beyond price. When choosing an insurer check out how good they are at paying up and handling claims.
