Working overseas? Get travel insurance for your holidays.
With flexible travel insurance that covers more than 150 activities, sports and experiences, it’s no wonder expats keep turning to World Nomads for travel insurance for their overseas getaways and holiday breaks.
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:
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.
Our travel insurance is available to most nationalities living or travelling 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 conditions to this, so please check the policy before purchasing.
World Nomads designed its travel insurance around what our travellers most often claim for and tell us they want. In addition we cover more than 150 activities and events.
This is only a summary of cover and does not include the full terms, conditions, limits, and exclusions of the policy. You should read your policy wording in full, so you understand what is and isn’t covered. If you are unsure about your level of travel cover, please contact us for help.
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 medical 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, contact us and we can help.
At 12:00 in the afternoon after a yoga class, I took a large jar of coconut water from the fridge, and accidentally dropped it on the counter and slipped onto the broken glass shards. I slipped while holding a jar. I hit my left wrist on the broken glass shards and had cut wound as a result. I looked at it quickly, saw open flesh flapping, wrapped it in a clean towel and called a taxi to go to the hospital as soon as possible. I had pain and numbness in my right wrist. No neck injury, no head injury, no other injuries apparent.
