What countries are covered by World Nomads travel insurance?

We'll cover all countries on your 'must visit' list EXCEPT those that have a specific ‘Against All’ or ‘Avoid Non-Essential Travel’ warning against them issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs, the World Health Organisation (WHO) or similar body (unless you have contacted us and we have confirmed in writing that you will be covered).

Government warnings can be issued or changed without notice at any time, so always check the status with the Department of Foreign Affairs and the World Health Organisation before you buy a policy and before you pay anything towards your trip.

Please note that government travel sanctions may also restrict us from paying claims, so we’re unable to offer cover to travel sanctioned regions or countries. 

Sanctions and government warnings change, so we'll tell you when you get a quote if we can cover you to travel to a specific country or region. When you get a quote, you can add individual countries (Thailand, Vietnam, Laos) or regions (Asia, Europe, Worldwide) or a mix of both (Thailand, Vietnam, Asia).

The more detail you give us on where you're going, the more helpful we can be. If you have any further questions please get in contact with us.
