Learn more about travel insurance and what it does.
In most cases, traveling goes without a hitch. Yet, medical bills can be crippling if you’re accidently injured or unexpectedly ill overseas. For that alone, travel insurance is worth it.
We’ve listed three of the main things people want cover for, but there are many more – have a look at our list of benefits!
Medical and medical evacuation
If there’s one big reason to buy travel insurance, this is it. In many cases, if you get sick, the hospital won’t treat you without upfront payment or providing proof of an insurance policy.
World Nomads travel insurance can cover overseas medical expenses including:
This is not a full list of what's covered. There are limits and conditions that apply, so for more information read your policy carefully before you buy.
Have to cancel your trip can't happen at the times you least expect it. When you start paying for your airfares and accommodation, it only makes sense to protect what you've spent in case you can't travel. All of our policies can help cover flights and accommodation if:
Bags go missing from airline check-ins and things get stolen too. Loss of personal belongings is one the main reasons people buy travel insurance. Despite tracking, barcodes and all the rest of it, it’s not all that uncommon for a bag or two to go astray on flights. Hope it’s not yours.
If it is, our policies can help you for loss, theft or damage when your bag is checked in with a carrier. We can also cover you essential items if your bag is delayed – think toiletries, undies, a clean shirt and some socks.
Don’t forget to read the policy wording when you hit the quote button as all plans are different – don’t just assume your gear is covered in every situation, as conditions or exclusions may apply.
This is only a summary of cover and does not include the full terms and conditions of the policy. You should read your policy wording in full so you understand what is and isn’t covered. That way there won’t be any surprises if you need to use it. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Never travel without insurance. This was the first time I ever purchased travel insurance and I am so glad I did. A few days into my trip to Spain I twisted my foot heading down to the metro. Thanks to World Nomads I was able to get medical attention in Spain and since, as luck would have it, I had a fracture that required surgery, they got me a flight home the next day. Filing a claim was surprisingly easy and when the claim was finally processed, I was reimbursed for all of my expenses including things like the extra week in the hotel I didn't get to take advantage of.
I recently had a serious injury traveling on my own & the team was amazing. Being confused with a brain injury they took care of everything. Claiming was no problem, they were on the phone constantly to see if all was OK. I can't recommend them enough. Absolutely fantastic & l will always travel with World Nomads Insurance. Thanks guys for getting me home safely.
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.
