There are established procedures for dealing with complaints and disputes regarding your policy or claim. These services are free to all policyholders and may be of assistance, should the need arise.  If you have a complaint about any aspect of your relationship with us, including your policy, our services or your insurance claim, please contact nib Travel (who manage World Nomad Insurance) and we will attempt to resolve your concerns in accordance with our Internal Dispute Resolution procedure. 

nib Travel will acknowledge your complaint within 5 business day and provide you with the contact details of the person handling your complaint. We will respond to your complaint within 10 business days. If more time is needed to collect necessary information or complete any further investigation required, nib will agree with you a reasonable alternative timeframe. Please refer to the new Policy Document for the complaints process.

If we are unable to resolve your complaint within 2 months of receiving your original complaint, or if you are still not satisfied with the outcome, you can choose to have your complaint independently reviewed by the Insurance & Financial Services Ombudsman (IFSO).

The IFSO provides a free and independent dispute resolution service for consumers who have a dispute with their financial service provider falling within the terms of reference.  You can contact IFSO at:
