Am I covered by travel insurance if my cash has been stolen?

Yes! There’s cover for your stolen cash but only if you have the Explorer Plan and only under specific circumstances.

What does World Nomads Cover if Cash is Stolen? 

You can claim up to a maximum of €200/$250 (per policy) for cash when stolen from you while you are carrying it when the theft is observed.

What to do if your cash is stolen

Report the theft to the nearest police authority and obtain a police report to submit with your claim.

Also be aware that any claim submitted related to the theft of cash will have the €70/USD$100 policy excess applied.

Travel insurance is not designed to cover everything, so take the time to read the full description of cover in the policy wording for the full details on what’s not covered.
