Whether you’re an experienced diver or its your first time heading into the deep blue when going diving you may need to have the right level of scuba diving activity under our travel insurance plans
All our plans are different and may require an upgrade to go scuba diving. Read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) carefully to choose the right plan and/or adventure sport option for your trip. Terms and conditions and exclusions apply, check your policy for details or contact us.

Simply specify all the sports and activities you have planned for your trip when you get your quote, as you can’t add them afterwards.
Under our Standard and Explorer plans there are certain special conditions and exclusions depending on the type of scuba diving experience you’re planning. See our list below to know what you’ll be covered or not covered for:
(*) You must be with a professional, qualified and licensed guide or operator
(#) You must have the appropriate qualification, certification or license to participate in this sport, activity or experience
Note: sporting equipment that is checked-in is only covered where the carrier requires it be checked-in due to its size or weight. Always carefully read your PDS so you are clear on what is and isn’t covered under each plan. If you are still unsure about coverage you can contact us.
The right travel insurance can be very helpful in keeping your trip on track. World Nomads offers two policies – Standard and Explorer – that provide coverage when backpacking overseas.
Our plans are designed to provide cover for sudden and unforeseen events on your next overseas adventure, such as being left empty-handed when the airline loses your luggage, if you need to see a doctor if you are hurt or feeling unwell, if severe weather interrupts your plans, and for many other reasons.
World Nomads may offer cover for the following (up to the policy limits):
Note: Read your PDS for details on maximum benefit limits, exclusions and terms and conditions of your coverage.
Travel insurance tip: World Nomads provides travel insurance for more than 150 activities, sports and experiences. While this list might seem exhaustive, it doesn’t cover everything. That’s why you shouldn’t take for granted that your preferred activities will be covered. You can’t upgrade your level of cover mid-way through your holiday, so do consider this wisely.
Travel insurance is not designed to cover everything so understanding what’s not covered is important. There are several situations we can cover you for, but there are also some we just won’t cover.
These include, but are not limited to:
