Do you really want cheap travel insurance?

Cheap Travel Insurance is only good if it protects you for those emergencies it’s supposed to protect you for.

Going too cheap can mean you’re not covered when it matters and if you’re not covered… your trip of a lifetime can get very expensive, very fast.

That’s why at World Nomads we listened to our experienced travellers and designed designed simple and flexible travel insurance policy options to match their high expectations, at an affordable price (but not the cheapest).

All policies include a number of benefits that our travellers may need, these include:

  1. Overseas medical
  2. Cancellation
  3. Luggage cover
  4. 24/7 worldwide assistance

Travel insurance options that have your back

As no two travellers are alike, we’ve designed a Standard and Explorer travel insurance option so you can choose whether you pay for the extras or not.

If you’re planning to kayak the Amazon solo or throw yourself out of a plane with just a little bit of silk attached to your back, the Explorer option may be more suited to you.

Then again, you might be surprised by what is covered under the Standard travel insurance option. Just tell us who you are, where you’re going and how long you’ll be gone for and we’ll generate your instant quote with all the detail you need.

And if you’re not sure you can start with the Standard and upgrade your travel insurance at any time, even if you’re already on the road. Check your policy for the coverage start date and time.

This is only a summary of coverage and does not include the full terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of the policy. You should read your Policy Document in full so you understand what is and isn’t covered. That way there won’t be any surprises if you need to use it. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

We know we’re not the cheapest, but with us you can travel with confidence, knowing you’ve got 24/7 traveller support, insider information to help you plan your trip and coverage for all the important events you’re likely to encounter.

Cycle Accident

During cycle tour of Malaysia I fell off my bike and sustained abrasions and an undisplaced fracture of the surgical neck of my left humerus. No other vehicles were involved in the crash, but a private vehicle stopped and transported us to the nearest town (Gua Musang). Gua Musang Hospital (a public hospital) diagnosed and treated the injuries. I advised WN of the incident the following day. Following the injury we had to arrange alternative transport(train) to Kuala Lumpur and cancel the remainder of our cycle tour, including ferries booked in Australia that had a non-refundable portion.
