Travel insurance for expats.

World Nomads was founded by, and is operated by, people who have lived and worked overseas. We know that one of the best things about being an expat is the opportunity to explore neighboring countries and places.

There are three main reasons expats keep coming back to World Nomads for their travel insurance:

1) Flexible travel insurance.

We know it’s not easy finding travel insurance when you’re not living in your home country, so have designed our travel insurance to be flexible, so you can purchase it for as long, or as little, as you need.

2) Accessible online travel insurance even after you’ve left home.

Our travel insurance is available to most nationalities living or traveling outside of their country of residence. You can purchase online using a credit card as you don’t have to be in your country of residence to purchase it; however there are some exceptions to this, so please check the policy before purchasing.

3) All the essentials you need covered, and more...

World Nomads designed its travel insurance around what our travelers most often claim for and tell us they want. In addition we cover more than 150 activities and events

This isn't health insurance!

Expats must be aware this is travel insurance not health insurance.

This means it will not cover you for ongoing medical care. It also excludes many pre-existing conditions as well as any medical treatment that is not considered necessary by our medical specialists. If you’re not sure if you’ll be covered for something, call us and we can help.

Mugged on the way home.

I was mugged whilst walking back to my hostel. I was alone at the time and was held up with a knife and forced to give the aggressor everything in my pocket which included my iPhone 3G and my 32GB Ipod as well as my money belt containing 200 USD and 400 Peruvian Soles. The aggressor then fled the scene. I reported it t the police station the same day and have the official police report.
