Understand the key parts of World Nomads travel insurance

Appendicitis in Chiang Mai.

I just wanted to let everyone know how deeply and forever grateful I am for all the help I received from World Nomads insurance in one of my more painful and scary moments of my life. I never wished or intended to EVER use my insurance, and I have never used any of the ones I had in previous travels, but this time a sudden and excruciating stomach pain forced me to the Hospital while being in Thailand (Chiang Mai Ram Hospital). I thought I would get the right antibiotic and more powerful meds through an IV and end of story. But no, the actual case was that my appendix was inflamed and infected, and the only way of dealing with this was surgery. I just couldn't believe it! So yeah, it was scary, I was alone, and they were awesome, replied right away through e-mail, which was fantastic because I did not have time to make phone calls, then alongside the International Patient Services from the Hospital, took care of everything and saved my life. I just want everyone to be aware of the importance of having insurance, and a good one, even if they think they're healthy and nothing bad is going to happen, unexpected things happen all the time, and it can ruin your fun AND your budget. I am very thankful I had my World Nomads insurance by my side, and you can be sure I will always have it on every future trip.
