Flexible travel insurance for trips of any length

  • Trusted by:

This information is for all travellers except: Americans, Australians, Brazilians, British, Canadians, Irish, and New Zealanders.

You’ve got a one way ticket in your back pocket and plans for a great new job, life or adventure… but you’re not covered for the trip to get you there. That’s where World Nomads’ Single Trip Travel Insurance comes in, covering the gap between your old life.

Start your future on a high note

World Nomads offers single trip travel insurance to cover you and your personal items for as long as you need us to, whether it be a few days, a few weeks or even months, before you get to where you’re going.

Most of our travelers on a one way ticket are moving for a new job and are most concerned about cancellation or losing their baggage on the way.

We offer Standard or Explorer options with differing cover. It’s up to you to consider your requirements and match them up with the right cover for your needs.

Single Trip cover

All World Nomads policies cover those events our travelers most often encounter including:

  • Medical
  • Cancellation
  • Luggage cover
  • 24/7 Worldwide assistance

We cover more than 150 activities depending on the policy you choose and if it’s not on the list, call us and we’ll let you know if we’ll cover it.

Exclusions

There are of course exclusions which apply. Some of the exclusions which may apply are:

  • Cancellation or other expenses if you change your mind and decide not to go.
  • You do anything illegal (You didn’t really think we’d cover that did you?)
  • If you’ve taken drugs or alcohol or acquire an STD
  • Non-emergency treatment that can wait until you return home (it's not health insurance, it's for travel emergencies)
  • Pre-existing medical conditions

This is not a full list of what isn't covered. Make sure you read your policy so you know what you're covered. 

Phone theft.

I was sitting on the grass in the Parc de la Ciutadella in Barcelona talking with some friends when a man crouched down next to me and tried to offer me narcotics. He had a jacket with him which he had set on the ground next to him and I later realised it covered my bag which was sitting next to me. I repeatedly refused to buy anything and told him to leave but he wouldn't go away. He finally left. I looked into my bag about 10 min later and realised he had stolen the phone out of my bag.
