Trip Resumption: What's covered by travel insurance?

If you've had to interrupt your trip and return home because you were sick or injured while abroad, or one of your close relatives has been hospitalised or has died, certain World Nomads policies can cover reasonable transport and accommodation expenses to get you back on the road so that you can finish your trip.

Your policy still needs to be active when you resume your trip and it needs to be the same one that you were travelling on when you had to return home.

Note: Cover depends on your country of residence, and the limits depends on the policy that you choose, so make sure you read your policy carefully.

Trip Resumption: Does the policy for my country of residence offer cover?

Trip Resumption: What's not covered by travel insurance?

  • Any expenses incurred while you're at home
  • Expenses to get you back on your trip, if you went home because you were home sick
  • A business class upgrade where you've been flying budget airlines
  • Resumption if your policy has expired

This is only a summary of cover and does not include the full terms, conditions, limits, and exclusions of the policy. You should read your policy wording in full, so you understand what is and isn’t covered. If you are unsure about your level of travel cover, please contact us for help.

Be prepared if you need to claim for trip resumption.

Depending on your claim, you'll need copies of:

  • Receipts
  • Itineraries
  • Doctors/death certificates
  • Medical history (ruling out pre-existing conditions)
  • New flight tickets

Grandma in palliative care.

My Grandmother suffered an acute Subarachnoid Haemorrhage after having a fall and was subsequently placed in Palliative Care in November. I received a phone call to return home as my Grandmother only had a few days to live according to the doctors. I returned home and she passed away. I then recommenced my travels after her passing and funeral.
