The world has no boundaries, but unfortunately, travel insurance does. World Nomads policies can go with you to most countries with a few exceptions.

We don’t offer coverage if you travel abroad to a country or region against the advice of the Canadian Government or Health Canada. In other words, you aren’t covered if you book a trip or buy a policy after the Canadian government has issued formal advisory against travel to a destination, country or region listed on your itinerary. 

Other countries we exclude are:

• Iran
• Syria
• North Korea
• Crimea region
• Cuba also has limitations. Read the policy for more details.

If there are any changes to the countries we cover, the easiest way to check is by getting a quote and adding individual countries (such as Thailand, Vietnam, Laos) or regions (Asia, Europe, Worldwide) or a mix of both (Thailand, Vietnam, Asia) to the form. You won’t be able to buy insurance for a country we don’t cover.

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
