Simple and flexible travel insurance to take you camping around the world. Buy at home or while traveling, and claim online from anywhere in the world.
We get it. You want to escape from the hustle and unwind under a blanket of stars. From lush northern European forests to the endless horizons of Australia’s Outback, a camping trip offers every manner of revival. As exciting as planning your outdoor adventure is, traveling far from home and urban comforts also comes with risks.
World Nomads Travel Insurance Standard and Explorer plans have been designed to offer cover for sudden and unforeseen events on your next camping trip such as being left empty handed when the airline loses your baggage (with your hiking gear in it), if you need to see a doctor if you are hurt or unwell or if severe weather washes away your travel plans.
World Nomads offers cover (up to the policy limits) for:
Your coverage will vary according to your country of residence and whether you chose a Standard or an Explorer plan. Read your policy for details on cover, maximum benefit limits, exclusions and conditions of your coverage.
What’s a camping trip without some action?
Depending on your Country of Residence, and the plan you choose, you can be covered for a number of activities such as bungee jumping, kayaking and scuba diving up to 30 metres. While there are many activities available on the Standard plan, those feeling extra adventurous can upgrade to the Explorer Plan, which offers higher benefits and cover for a broader range of activities and sports. It costs more but it may better suit your needs as it offers upgrades for activities such as hiking up to 6,000 metres, or canyoning or scuba diving up to 50 metres.
Check your policy carefully for details or contact us if you have questions.

Never travel without insurance. This was the first time I ever purchased travel insurance and I am so glad I did. A few days into my trip to Spain I twisted my foot heading down to the metro. Thanks to World Nomads I was able to get medical attention in Spain and since, as luck would have it, I had a fracture that required surgery, they got me a flight home the next day. Filing a claim was surprisingly easy and when the claim was finally processed, I was reimbursed for all of my expenses including things like the extra week in the hotel I didn't get to take advantage of.
I recently had a serious injury traveling on my own & the team was amazing. Being confused with a brain injury they took care of everything. Claiming was no problem, they were on the phone constantly to see if all was OK. I can't recommend them enough. Absolutely fantastic & l will always travel with World Nomads Insurance. Thanks guys for getting me home safely.
I was bitten by a monkey at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur. I went to a nearby clinic and they gave me a rabies shot, antibiotics to take for 4 days, pain medicine, and anti-inflammatory medicine.
