Check out MSE's Travel Insurance guide.

It says you can get cover for a year for just £15 though make sure everything you need is covered on this offer, you may need to add extras if not which shouldn't really come to that much hopefully.

Atlas insurance were very cheap for me.

found a decent quote that doesnt include baggage cover but do i need it as i am only using hand luggage ? and the quote also states that if my flight is cancelled then i have to pay £100 excess for £500 quid cover even though my flights cost me less than £60 return.

Wouldn't that depend on what you’re carrying? If the items aren't of value to you and are easily replaceable then perhaps you won’t need it.

You could check other insurers though the minimum appears to be around £75 which still wouldn't necessarily cover your flight if it were cancelled. Though I should think that if you get stuck in Berlin this would/should/might cover you if you need accommodation. Check the terms.

Incidentally, Direct Travel Standard policy is highly rated apparently. This is £23 for singles in Europe, via comparison site MoneySupermarket you can get this for £22.69 though you might do better via a cashback site (do bear in mind though, you pay more if you purchase this direct from their website). Direct Travel Standard policy has a £75 excess for cancellations which covers up to £5,000, baggage £2,000 and medical £10m. And don't forget that your cover will cover full repatriation costs which could cost you thousands without it.

And you might also want to consider getting yourself a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) though do bear in mind, travel insurance covers far more than the EHIC.

If you're still having doubts and think any of the insurers aren't cost effective then consider making an enquiry on the Overseas Holidays & Travel Planning forums on MSE which might be more helpful to you. I'm not an expert on these matters to be honest so might be better if you did.

I don't know if this is helpful but perhaps you should also consider reading through the Travel Insurance guide I mentioned in post #5.
