FAQ

Here are our most frequently asked questions. You can also find the answers to other questions in our Helpdesk or you can ask the customer service team. If you’re looking for general travel advice, you can ask our community at Ask a Nomad.

  • What can I claim for?
    To give you an idea, some of the things can claim for are: overseas medical expenses, medical evacuation, cancellation costs, emergency dental treatment, luggage and personal effects.
  • Can I make a claim whilst I'm away?
    Absolutely! We understand that you might be away for extended periods of time, so our online claims system allows you to submit claims and liaise with our claims people while you are still travelling. Simply log in to your membership page to start the process and follow the prompts to submit your claim.
  • Can I wait until I get home to make a claim?
    Yes, of course you can! Provided the incident you are claiming for took place while you were travelling and your policy was valid at the time, you can wait until you return home to submit your claim if this is easier.....no problem at all!
