Yes, Canadians can buy a World Nomads policy when already overseas.
You can be travelling and still buy a policy – you don't have to be in your home province or within Canada to do so. However, a 48-hour waiting period applies for coverage of any injury or illness, counting from the date you set the policy to begin on. After the 48-hour waiting period, you will be eligible for the full benefits of the policy.
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.
