We live for adventure, so why not cover it!

As World Nomads ourselves, we love to explore our boundaries when we travel, so it’s important to know that you’re covered for the adventure activities you love to do.

Over the past 10 years we have worked to build one of the most comprehensive lists of covered activities available anywhere. We like to think we've covered most of the sports, activities and experiences you'll do, yet some activities we haven’t been able to get covered.

Activities cover varies depending on where you're from, the plan and adventure sport options you choose. For most plans you can also upgrade your cover for more risky adventures, so make sure you take the time to check your policy carefully before you buy it to make sure it covers all the adventures you'll do on your trip. If you have any questions, just ask us.

Here are just some of the activities we cover.

It's not just fine print

This list of activities is a summary only and may not be automatically included in each travel insurance plan without upgrading your cover. Some activities may have certain restrictions, limits, special conditions and exclusions to cover. Every travel insurance plan is different, so do check your adventure sports cover carefully before you buy a policy to make sure it covers what you need, including all of the activities you’re planning to do. That way you’ll know what’s covered, what’s not covered and the terms and conditions which may apply if you do need to use it.
