Not everything is covered, so read on....

This content is for European travellers (except UK and Irish).Looking for comprehensive travel insurance to cover your (or your child’s) adventure overseas? World Nomads has designed our travel insurance cover with the adventurous in mind and covers more activities up-front than most.

Are you looking for comprehensive travel insurance?

While we won't say our travel insurance is comprehensive (because it doesn't cover everything), our travelers get up to all sorts of different things, so we offer two levels of cover - Standard and Explorer, with options to include extra activities to cover both the more, and less, adventurous.

As you'd expect, every policy is different and as multiple benefits. However, all of them include:

  • Overseas Medical
  • Cancellation
  • Luggage/baggage cover
  • 24/7 worldwide assistance

You also have access to world Nomads’ community of like minded travelers, language guides, safety information, travel guides and more.

There are exclusions and limits which apply, so be sure to read the policy wording before you buy a policy. 

What's not covered?

If you put yourself in danger then we won’t cover you. This includes going to places you’re country of residence tells you not to, doing activities that you’re not qualified for or are too dangerous. We have a list of covered activities in our policies and if you’re not sure, give us a call and we’ll let you know if we’ll cover it or not.

Other things we won’t cover include:

  • Anything illegal (you didn’t really think we’d cover that did you?)
  • If you've taken drugs or alcohol
  • That rash you picked up while having hostel sex (ah, sorry)
  • Certain pre-existing medical conditions

This isn't a full list of what is and isn't covered. Make sure you read the policy wording and pay attentionn to the exclusions which apply. 

Sore penis!

I noticed an abnormal infiammation of my penis. Initially I had also a little bit pain and I got scared. In the evening the pain and the itch were gone but I still was worried because the dermatitis started to get worse.
