I got an annual multi-trip with these guys. Great service and very easy to use+plus they have some nice competitions. No complaints from me.

I got a backpacker insurance policy from them. They gave me 10% off and when I was a bit confused and used the pop up comment-on-the-website-type box, they got back to me and made things clear. I work in customer service now and that was good service!
