You don't need a return ticket to buy travel insurance.

  • Trusted by:

You’ve got a one way ticket in your back pocket and plans for a great new job, life or adventure… but you’re not covered for the trip to get you there. That’s where World Nomads’ Single Trip Travel Insurance comes in, covering the gap between your old life.

Start your future on a high note

World Nomads offers single trip travel insurance to cover you and your personal items for as long as you need us to, whether it be a few days, a few weeks or even months, before you get to where you’re going.

Most of our travelers on a one way ticket are moving for a new job and are most concerned about cancellation or losing their baggage on the way.

We offer Standard or Explorer options with differing cover. It’s up to you to consider your requirements and match them up with the right cover for your needs.

Single Trip cover

All World Nomads policies cover those events our travelers most often encounter including:

  • Medical
  • Cancellation
  • Luggage cover
  • 24/7 Worldwide assistance

We cover more than 150 activities depending on the policy you choose and if it’s not on the list, call us and we’ll let you know if we’ll cover it.

Exclusions

There are of course exclusions which apply. Some of the exclusions which may apply are:

  • Cancellation or other expenses if you change your mind and decide not to go.
  • You do anything illegal (You didn’t really think we’d cover that did you?)
  • If you’ve taken drugs or alcohol or acquire an STD
  • 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

Kidney Stone in Bali

On Saturday 9 August 2014 I incurred acute pain and vomiting all night long. I went to Siloam Hospitals Bali due to the acute pain and non-eating. I was hospitalised immediately. X-rays and ultrasound found a kidney stone and infection. I was hospitalised for 5-6 days where I was medicated and had tests accordingly. I had a procedure to break up the kidney stone as it would not dislodge. I was released from hospital to convalesce at home
