    Hi

    I am due to go away to israel to study very soon. the medical insurance i am provided with is very basic, so i want to get my own travel insurance, which will cover medical as well, as most policies do.

    I am leaving on the 11th august 2009, returning 14 july 2010. the insurance must allow me to return home in the middle for a minimum amount of 14 days at a time(many companies can do this). I believe this is known as backpacker or gap year insurance.

    I am currently 17, will be 18 this november, which rules out other companies that say i must be 18 to take out a policy by myself.
    The quotes i am receiving from a whole host of companies are in the range of £150-250, which is way above what i can afford.

    It must provide baggage insurance, theft or loss of cash and passport, and medical insurance (minimum £1million).

    Can anyone either suggest a company they have used which worked very well for them, or, try and find a cheaper quote for me, or a company that will find a cheaper quote for me?

    I have tried many, so please ensure before rerplying that they will do backpackers/gap year insurance, and that it is ok that i am under 18 at the start of the policy.

    Thank you sooo much.
