Support for a cancelled trip, stolen belongings, medical emergencies, and more
Most Aussies enjoy the creature comforts they’re afforded Down Under, so when it comes to travelling overseas many of us choose to bunk down in a holiday home rather than a run-of-the-mill hotel or resort. But sometimes booking from a private homeowner could add a layer of “What if?”. That’s where World Nomads Travel Insurance comes in.
Whether you’re renting a cabin in the woods in Alaska or have secured that fancy unit in London for a week, we can offer you travel insurance that can assist you and your loved ones when you need it the most.
When travelling overseas, it is understandable that you may feel a little uncertain about what to expect when booking a private rental over a hotel or a resort, especially as it is sight unseen.
At World Nomads we know how you feel, that’s why we aim to support you in your travels. Below are just some of the reasons why you should consider travel insurance when you’re planning a trip that will include a private vacation rental, no matter the destination.
World Nomads offers coverage (up to the policy limits) for:
Travel insurance tip: Holiday homes have various house rules about occupancy, minimum age requirements for the primary renter and so on. Do ensure you understand what you're agreeing to before booking to avoid potentially incurring any extra fees or losing your deposit.
Private holiday rentals differ greatly, not just when it comes to facilities and location, but also who you’re dealing with, what’s included and of course, what it will set you back financially.
It is important to consider travel insurance regardless of the sort of trip and the length of trip you're taking. World Nomads offers two plans – a Standard Plan and an Explorer Plan – each with different benefits, limits and sub-limits of coverage.
Which one you choose is up to you and your specific needs, but if you are planning on renting a vehicle or hiring sporting equipment; want cover for issues related to Coronavirus; and want reassurance that if you wind up in hospital you won’t be facing exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses, the Explorer plan is worth checking out.
Travel insurance tip: Make sure you do your research on the countries you’re looking to visit to ensure that there are no government warnings or restrictions. Your policy will be jeopardised if something goes wrong and you fail to adhere to the warnings.

This is only a summary of coverage and does not include the full terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of the policy. You should read your PDS in full so you understand what is and isn’t covered. That way there won’t be any surprises if you need to use it. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
