Travel Insurance

World Nomads – Plot where you want to go, for how long etc, and they instantly give you a quote. Usually “Standard” or “Explorer”. Quite a bit cheaper than the Norwegian insurance companies I found and they will cover most of what you will need. You can also buy insurance from them during your trip (ie. even if you’ve already left your country of origin)
