Brazil domestic travel insurance

Four travel benefits you shouldn't leave home without

Maybe your next trip won’t include crossing an ocean or boarding a plane. But just because you’re travelling within Brazil doesn’t mean that you won’t need backup if your travels take a turn for the worst.

World Nomads’ coverage starts when you leave your home province and provides essential protection against a wide range of mishaps that you could encounter on the road.

Why do I need travel insurance if I'm travelling domestically?

It doesn’t matter if you’re on a distant continent or in an adjacent state – you could sprain your ankle, get into a car accident, or get delayed by inclement weather just about anywhere. A good travel protection plan can help prevent any of these unexpected events from turning into full-blown disasters.


Accidents and emergencies can happen in your own backyard – which is why it’s important to consider these four main benefits of domestic travel insurance.

  • Unexpected trip cancellation: An illness of an immediate family member or a work emergency can cause you to cancel your trip, and World Nomads travel insurance can help you recover your pre-paid non-refundable trip costs for these and other covered reasons.
  • Medical emergencies: Hospital bills and emergency office visits can really add up, especially when your health insurance won’t cover you out of state. These costs alone are a reason to purchase travel insurance for your domestic travels.
  • Trip interruption: Sometimes you can hit a bump in the road – in a literal and figurative sense. Maybe the Brazilian government issued a ‘defer travel’ warning or maybe your travel companion got sick. This benefit covers meals, hotel stays and any other surprise expenses you could incur as a result of the setback.
  • Medical evacuation and repatriation: Sometimes the best place to get medical treatment is at a hospital back home. Be sure to call the 24/7 Emergency Assistance team to get approval.


It is important that you read and understand your coverage. There are limits and exclusions that apply to all insured travellers.

  • Alcohol- and drug- related incidents: There is no coverage for any alcohol-related sickness, death or injury or the abuse of medication, drugs or any other toxic substance.
  • Any losses related to the participation in illegal activities: For example, if you get injured while looting a store during a riot. 
  • Select personal belongings, such as bicycles, professional equipment, and musical instruments. 
  • Travel supplier cancellations: If your airline or tour operator decides to cancel, you should seek refunds and credits or reschedule your trip directly with your supplier. 
This is only a summary of coverage and does not include the full terms and conditions of the policy. It is important you read and understand your policy as it contains benefits, conditions, exclusions and pre-existing condition exclusions. If you do not understand your coverage or if you have questions, just ask us.
