If you don't like the idea of passwordless keys you can use ssh-agent:

  ssh-agent > agent
  source agent
  ssh-add [path to private key] 

You will have to type the passphrase in here but it will stay loaded in the
agent until the next server reboot

If you then 'source agent' in your backup script you will be able to use scp
