Simple and flexible travel insurance to take you camping around the world. Buy at home or while traveling, and claim online from anywhere in the world.
Camping in wild and remote places is right of passage for many Aussies. Discover the hike-in only campsites on the Hawaiian Islands or go solo camping in the Canadian Rockies to get under the skin of a country on a camping break.
Travel insurance can help with unexpected costs if a sudden illness or injury lands you in hospital, if you’re left empty handed when the airline loses your baggage (with your camping gear in it!), or if severe weather puts a dent in your camping plans.
World Nomads offers cover (up to the policy limits) for:
Both our Standard and Explorer plans offer cover for level 1 sport and adventure activities that include camping and hiking up to 2,000 metres, as well as activities such as surfing, kayaking and bungy jumping.
For Aussies looking for more adventurous pursuits, you may need to upgrade your cover if you’re planning on camping or hiking up to 6,000 metres or if you’re abseiling or mountain biking. Specify all the activities you’re planning on your trip when you get your quote, as you can’t add them afterwards. Terms and conditions apply, check your PDS for details or contact us.
Camping holidays can serve up some serious surprises. If that hike to catch the sunrise turns into a nasty misstep and you need a doctor urgently, call our 24/7 Emergency Assistance Team. They can help direct you to the nearest medical centre or arrange emergency transport to the most appropriate facility.
Traveller Tip: check you have any relevant paperwork as you’ll probably be asked for proof for a number of things such as entry permits for countries you’ll be visiting, special tourist visas, digital COVID-19 certificates, proof of vaccinations and a negative PCR test, and camping or visitor permits for national parks.
For self-drive camping trips, the Explorer Plan has cover for the rental insurance excess if you’re involved in a car accident. If you’re taking your own sports equipment, such as a kayak, the Explorer Plan also offers cover to hire replacement equipment if:
Please note: sporting equipment that is checked-in is only covered where the carrier requires it be checked-in due to its size or weight.
Sorry – we won’t cover you if you do something reckless (such as camping in an area that is against local authority warnings). Some things we don’t cover include:
Travel Insurance Tip: before you head off into the wilderness, follow the camping regulations that apply to that region or country. If you unknowingly cross into another country that is not on your certificate of insurance, it could affect your cover.
This is not a full list of what’s covered and what’s not; please check your policy for a full list of terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions that may apply to your specific plan. If you are unsure of your level of travel cover, please contact us for help.
Travel insurance for independent travelers and intrepid families. Nobody wants to think about all the things that could go wrong on their trip, but these things can and do happen. So be prepared and get your travel insurance today.
Never travel without insurance. This was the first time I ever purchased travel insurance and I am so glad I did. A few days into my trip to Spain I twisted my foot heading down to the metro. Thanks to World Nomads I was able to get medical attention in Spain and since, as luck would have it, I had a fracture that required surgery, they got me a flight home the next day. Filing a claim was surprisingly easy and when the claim was finally processed, I was reimbursed for all of my expenses including things like the extra week in the hotel I didn't get to take advantage of.
I recently had a serious injury traveling on my own & the team was amazing. Being confused with a brain injury they took care of everything. Claiming was no problem, they were on the phone constantly to see if all was OK. I can't recommend them enough. Absolutely fantastic & l will always travel with World Nomads Insurance. Thanks guys for getting me home safely.
I was bitten by a monkey at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur. I went to a nearby clinic and they gave me a rabies shot, antibiotics to take for 4 days, pain medicine, and anti-inflammatory medicine.
