Take life by the handlebars and check out World Nomads travel insurance plans when cycling on your next overseas adventure.
For lovers of cycling, traveling through a city or a whole region on two wheels can be an eye-opening experience. It can help you get in shape, it’s the environmentally-friendly option, and you get to make as many pit stops to rest and explore as you want.
But with all the positives of cycling, there’s also the chance that you could get caught up in an accident and end up with a sprained ankle, a broken arm, or even worse end up in hospital due to a major accident. That’s why you should consider travel insurance if you need to cover your tracks.
When choosing World Nomads products, you’ll have access to two simple and flexible plans – Standard and Explorer. We offer cover (up to the policy limits) for:
Under both of World Nomads plans – Standard and Explorer – you may be automatically covered under the Standard Plan, or you’ll need to upgrade to the Explorer Plan depending on the type of cycling activity you’re doing. Depending on your country of residence and the plan you’ve selected, you could be covered for the following cycling activities:
Note: all our plans are different and may require an upgrade to include cycling at certain altitude. In some instances, you must be with a professional, qualified and licensed cycling guide, instructor or operator. Terms and conditions, limits and exclusions, apply. Read your policy wording carefully to choose the right plan and cycling option for your trip.
For more information on cycling and mountain biking coverage check out our Help Centre article, ‘Am I covered if I'm cycling or mountain biking?’ in the Help Centre which explains what you need to know to be adequately covered. Choose your country of residence and you’ll access the most up to date information.
Before you hit the road with your bike, helmet and gear, it pays to arm yourself with these cycling tips for a safer trip:
Travel insurance tip: World Nomads provides travel insurance for more than 200 activities, sports and experiences. While this list might seem exhaustive, it doesn’t cover everything. That’s why you shouldn’t take for granted that your preferred activities will be covered. You can’t upgrade your level of cover mid-way through your holiday, so do consider this wisely.
Some things we may not cover include:
This is only a summary of cover and does not include the full terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of the policy. You should read your policy wording 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.
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.
