Adventure from sea to shining sea
The USA is a vast continent of mountains, deserts, lakes and forests, all edged by a spectacular and diverse coastline. Each state is different from the next with unique food, music, people, and landscapes to discover.
Whether you plan to eat your way across the USA, hit the hiking or ski trails, or catch big waves, things can always go wrong. It might be a bad case of gastro, a fall on a ski slope or losing your luggage at a huge US airport; but if you consider adding travel insurance when you pack your suitcase, we could help you turn these wrongs into rights.
Travelling can be complicated, but travel insurance doesn’t have to be. We keep it simple at World Nomads with just two policies to choose between: Standard and Explorer.
Treatment at a US hospital is very expensive. Travelling in the US without insurance cover could be a very costly oversight. The USA is the perfect destination for outdoor adventures.
If you’re planning to hike in the mountains and want to be covered by World Nomads, make sure you speak to us first. Some adventure activities require upgrades to your policy, and some activities are not covered at all.
If your luggage is damaged or stolen while travelling, World Nomads may cover the cost of repair or replacement (within policy limits).
Traveller tip: you can speak to us about our optional upgrades for high-value items you plan to take to the USA.
Car insurance: taking a road trip across some of the USA’s 50 states? If you’re hiring a car, World Nomads can offer cover for rental vehicle excess damage coverage in case your vehicle is stolen, or you are involved in an accident.
Losing your luggage: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the world's busiest airport – which means things can get lost. If you land at any airport and your luggage does not, we can help. If your baggage is delayed by the carrier for more than 12 hours after your scheduled arrival, we can pay for the cost of your essential items (up to policy limits), and subject to the policy terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions.
Coronavirus: unfortunately, COVID-19 is still with us, however World Nomads offers Coronavirus cover which varies depending on your Country of Residence. Coronavirus can be a headache (literally), but if you (or an immediate family member) get sick with Coronavirus, our Standard Plan can offer coverage for medical assistance, repatriation, and hospitalisation. Plus, our Explorer Plan offers cover for other related events, such as trip interruption (or cancellation). Looking for more information on our Coronavirus cover? We have more details here.
Accessing our 24/7 Emergency Assistance Team: it’s good to know with World Nomads travel insurance, you can call our 24/7 Emergency Assistance Team if you suddenly find yourself in a crisis overseas. The EA 24/7 team can help get you to the nearest medical facility, provide help navigating language barriers, or assist with evacuation for medical reasons.
World Nomads doesn’t offer a one-size-covers-all policy, some things we won’t cover are:
Be sure to read the PDS and General Exclusions for other scenarios and expenses we don't cover so there'll be no surprises if you need to make a claim.
