in a year you will be covered for all of them.
  Backpacker insurance is fit for backpackers. This type is advantageous for those
planning longer trips. The worldwide backpacker can benefit from the one month to
one year coverage offered by this category.
  One type, senior travel insurance, is dedicated to the elderly. Retirees get reasonable,

available only to those at least 60 years of age.

like climbing Mount Everest, are covered by this policy type. Insurance companies
will only allow specialized travel insurance for those with such plans.
