Gone are the days of solo backpacking.

  • Trusted by:

Traveling with your family is a whole different ball game. While you might have pushed some boundaries when traveling by yourself or backpacking when you were young, you’d never do that with your family in tow… or would you? That’s where World Nomads Family Travel Insurance comes in, supporting you when things go wrong.

How does World Nomads Family Travel Insurance help me and my family?

World Nomads team is always there to help you navigate and locate local medical assistance, provide information and advice and assist in keeping your dream holiday on track.

We cover more than 150 activities, and all our policies include those events our travelers most often encounter including:

  • Overseas medical expenses
  • Cancellation
  • Luggage
  • 24/7 Worldwide assistance.

You can also access our community of like minded travelers to give you their insights from their travels as well as language guides, safety information, travel guides and videos to plan your trip.

What’s not covered

Read your policy carefully as there are some exclusions including:

  • If you change your mind you are not covered for cancelation or other expenses incurred as a result.
  • You do anything illegal (You didn’t really think we’d cover that did you?)
  • If you’ve taken drugs or alcohol
  • Non-emergency treatment that can wait until you return home (it's not health insurance, it's for travel emergencies)
  • Certain pre-existing medical conditions

How do I buy family travel insurance?

All you need to do is enter a few details about yourself and your holiday online and the ages of all your family members and we will generate an instant quote with both Standard and Explorer options.

Once you’ve selected the right level of cover for you and paid, you will get instant confirmation of your family travel insurance to your selected email.

Broken glass shards.

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.
