Extending your travel insurance

You're looking out across a beautiful valley, or a sea of samba dancers, or a stunning desolate beach and you’re thinking to yourself, "Why don't I stay here just a little bit longer?” We know, we’ve been there too!

I'm staying! Will I still be covered?

When we founded World Nomads over 10 years ago, it was from being in that position ourselves that we decided our travel insurance should allow you to extend your journey and stay covered.

So we made it easy to sign in to extend your travel insurance yourself from anywhere in the world.

Of course, you will need to extend your policy before it expires and you can extend up to the maximum duration the policy allows (in most cases 12 months in total but do check as it depends on your policy).

That's not the only time you can rely on World Nomads to keep you covered.

My policy has expired and I'm still overseas, can I buy?

Yep, we see this all the time too. Not a problem.

With World Nomads, you can buy a policy from anywhere in the world at any time. It is most definitely OK to buy while you are still overseas.

If you've bought from us before, sign in to your membership page and it’ll be even quicker to buy again.

I'm already travelling and left home without travel insurance, can I buy?

Yes! Of course you can and we’ll even save you the lecture on why you should have bought before you left!

And finally, a note about waiting periods!

When you buy a new policy while still overseas, there might be waiting periods that apply to some of the policy benefits. Your policy wording will always have the full details on this.

STOP right now and buy a policy!
