Cheap isn't always the way to go.

  • Trusted by:

Cheap Travel Insurance is only good if it protects you for those emergencies it’s supposed to protect you for. Going too cheap can mean you’re not covered when it matters and if you’re not covered… your trip of a lifetime can get very expensive, very fast. That’s why at World Nomads we listened to our experienced travelers and designed the best travel insurance to match their high expectations, at an affordable price (but not the cheapest).

We’ve included the cover options you told us you couldn’t live without in every World Nomads policy including:

Overseas Medical

We’ve seen some pretty hairy accidents and illnesses, from aneurysms to scooter crashes, and at least one shark bite! When the unexpected happens, our 24/7 emergency medical assistance teams will support you and your family, so you can focus on getting better.

Overseas Dental

Broken or chipped teeth can happen at any time. It can be seeded bread in Berlin, olives in Athens or dried fish in Krasnodar. If pain suddenly strikes, World Nomad travel insurance can cover the emergency dental treatment you need to get relief.

Delayed baggage

We’ve been stuck in some remote locations with only the clothes on our back, so we understand the need to freshen up when your bags don't arrive. If you’ve arrived at the snow without warm clothes, or the tropics without a fresh pair of underwear, we can help you navigate the worst of traveler gripes - delayed baggage. 

Medical Repatriation

Serious accidents or illnesses can happen at any time during your trip. And if it’s bad enough to end your trip mid-way or if our medical teams recommend you return home for treatment, our repatriation cover can help get you home as fast as possible.

Medical evacuations are expensive, costing up to $300,000 and more, depending on where you are, and the amount of medical support you might need. That's what our emergency medical, evacuation and repatriation insurance in all of our plans is designed to cover. Plus, our expert assistance teams take the pressure off, by negotiating the complexities of hospitals, specialist transportation, airline approvals and medical escorts so you (and your family) can focus on your recovery.

Trip Cancellation

If you've booked and paid for your overseas trip and need to unexpectedly cancel, the last thing you want is to be out of pocket. Our travel insurance policies can cover some of your non-refundable, pre-paid transport and accommodation expenses, so you've got one less thing to worry about.

Get a quote now and compare! All you need to do is tell us who you are, where you’re going and how long you’ll be gone for and we’ll generate your instant quote with all the details you need.

This isn't a full list of what is and isn't covered. Make sure you read the policy wording and pay attention to the exclusions which apply.

We know we're not the cheapest.....

And we don't pretend to be. With us you can travel with confidence, knowing you’ve got 24/7 traveler support, and insider information to help you plan your trip.

Bitten by a monkey.

I was bitten by a monkey at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur. I went to a nearby clinic and they gave me a rabies shot, antibiotics to take for 4 days, pain medicine, and anti-inflammatory medicine.
