Do you really want cheap travel insurance?

Cheap Travel Insurance is only good if it protects you for those emergencies it’s supposed to protect you for.

Going too cheap can mean you’re not covered when it matters and if you’re not covered… your trip of a lifetime can get very expensive, very fast.

That’s why at World Nomads we listened to our experienced travelers and designed the best travel insurance to match their high expectations, at an affordable price (but not the cheapest).

We’ve included the cover options you told us you couldn’t live without in every World Nomads policy including:

  1. Medical
  2. Cancellation
  3. Luggage cover
  4. 24/7 worldwide assistance

Travel insurance options that have your back

As no two travelers are alike, we’ve designed a Standard and Explorer travel insurance option so you can choose whether you pay for the extras or not.

If you’re planning to kayak the Amazon solo or throw yourself out of a plane with just a little bit of silk attached to your back, the Explorer option may be more suited to you.

Then again, you might be surprised by what is covered under the Standard travel insurance option. Just tell us who you are, where you’re going and how long you’ll be gone for and we’ll generate your instant quote with all the detail you need.

We know we’re not the cheapest, but with us you can travel with confidence, knowing you’ve got 24/7 traveler support, insider information to help you plan your trip and coverage for all the important events you’re likely to encounter.
