Since 2005, travelers like you have helped us change the world through micro-donations.

We believe all travelers have a responsibility to give back.

That’s why, following the South East Asian tsunami in 2004, World Nomads founded The Footprints Network as a way to enable our customers to fund charity projects in the places they visit.

You can make a difference when you buy travel insurance with us by adding a small donation onto your policy price.

100% of your donation will go directly to the global community development project of your choice.

How it works
