Simple and flexible travel insurance. Buy more cover from home or while traveling to extend your trip.

  • Trusted by:

The information on this page is for all travellers except: Americans, Australians, Brazilians, British, Canadians, Irish, and New Zealanders. 

If you're traveling longer and your travel insurance policy has expired or is about to expire, World Nomads can offer you cover. 

We know that your plans can change and sometimes you have to extend your trip. That’s why we’ve designed simple and flexible travel insurance that you can buy online, anytime, from anywhere in the world.

If you buy a policy while traveling, there's a waiting period of 72 hours before full cover applies, and certain benefits (like pre-trip cancellation) won't apply as you’ve already left your home country.

But, all policies can cover you straight away if you're injured in an accident after you buy a policy. And if you buy a policy before you current ones expires, you'll have continuous cover. Your policy wording will have full details to understand the cover, limits and exclusions, so make sure you read it before you buy.

  • Buy while traveling
  • Get cover 24/7 online
  • Instant confirmation
  • Ongoing traveler support
  • 24/7 Emergency Assistance

It's not always fun.

Due to mishap, my frenulum on my penis got severely damaged. During intercourse with my girlfriend it nearly ripped and caused me a lot of pain and blood. I went to the doctor and he operated on it. Now everything is okay again.
