Me and my partner decided to take 12 montsh off to go travelling all around the world (including Kilimandjaro climbing, diving, etc..). Do you have a good insurance to recommend that will be very responsive, quick to resolve any issues we would have no matter where we woul dbe?

I also found on the rail link you posted on another one of my questions, a big list of cards and ID accepted in Australia for backpackers. Should I get a few of these or is the YHA enough?
I’m planning on heading off on a round the world trip with no real idea of when ill come home. Can most of these plans be bought/renewed online whilst travelling? Or something which rolls on as long as you want it to?
Yep, I’ve used World Nomad many times and I felt that it was a solid plan, but I think now they may have added a 100 USD deductible to each claim, but in the scope of things, it is still a deal. I never had to claim anything, but it was peace of mind in case I did. Most folks seem to like their plan!!!!!
I’m going to Bali soon and am going climbing – After doing some research I found that you’re not always covered for climbing if you need to use ropes!

Abseiling and rock climbing
Some companies such as Southern Cross Travel Insurance, Cover-More, and 1Cover will only cover for mountaineering or rock climbing activities that don’t require the use of ropes. World Nomad covers for free climbing (climbing without ropes) at an added cost. Additionally we found that ACE’s NZ alpine club’s leisure travel policy provides cover for free climbing at an extra premium.
