What does long term travel insurance cover?

We know there’s nothing more exciting than heading overseas with a ticket in your back pocket. So we designed our policies to cover more than 150 activities and events including casual bar work, skiing, zorbing and much more.

Our policies come with loads of benefits depending on the policy that you buy, but all of them cover:

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

How do I buy more travel insurance cover?

You can buy more cover, even if you’re already on the road. Generally cover lasts for one year, but if you want to extend your trip beyond one year, you just need to jump online to get a quote.

You can’t upgrade your policy type once you’ve departed and started your holiday, so you’ll have to buy a new policy if you need more coverage. That’s why it’s critical you select the right level of cover up front.

What’s not covered on long term travel insurance?

There’s a number of other exclusions so make sure you read your policy and know what you aren’t covered for. These include but aren't limited to:

  • 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)
  • Non-emergency treatment that can wait until you return home (it's not health insurance, it's for travel emergencies)
  • Ongoing treatment at home

It’s important to remember that World Nomads offers travel insurance… not medical insurance. That means most of our policies won’t cover you for pre-existing medical conditions or ongoing medical care (we'll patch you up and send you home).

Pregnancy Complications

My wife, pregnant 8 weeks and 3 days, had abdominal pain went to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor diagnosed that the pregnancy is at risk and that therefore she can't travel and needed complete rest.
