  • Trusted by:

Having been on the road for long periods ourselves, we know that waiting until you get home to lodge a claim isn’t always ideal. World Nomads gives you the freedom to claim from wherever you are and whenever you like, so you can keep traveling.

How to claim on your travel insurance

If you're already a World Nomads member, you'll just need to sign in, follow the claims path and attach your supporting documents. Brazilian World Nomads need to fill in a claim form - we're working on building online claims for you. Stay tuned.

If you're not a member, you can either create an account which lets you lodge most claims electronically or you can get in touch with our customer service teams, who'll send out a paper form for you to complete. 

Soon after you've lodged your claim, we'll email you a confirmation letter with a reference number, so you can keep track of your claim's progress.

Be prepared when you claim.

The claims process for World Nomads was painless and really intuitive.

I was pickpocketed while in Mexico City and had my recently new iPhone 6S stolen, as well as my credit card and driver’s license. The claims process for World Nomads was painless and really intuitive, logging everything online. The resolution was extremely fair and would be happy to recommend World Nomads to anyone.
