Why two travel insurance plans and what’s the difference?
No two travelers are the same, so why should travel insurance be one-size-fits-all?
You might be at the ski lodge in Queenstown or Sapporo, and half your crew are heading to the café while you hit the slopes. Or maybe your sister always rents a car when she travels, while you prefer to bus it. World Nomads offers different plans with different levels of cover so you can choose one to suit your needs.
Two plans to choose from
World Nomads offers two plans – a Standard Plan and an Explorer Plan – each with different benefits, limits and sub-limits of cover.
Please choose carefully from the outset, as you can’t upgrade from a Standard Plan to an Explorer Plan mid-trip. Depending on your country of residence, you may also need to add adventure activities to your quote as another type of cover upgrade as you can’t add this mid-trip.
What are the differences between a Standard and an Explorer Plan?
This varies depending on your country of residence. Broadly speaking, though:
An easy way to see the differences is in the benefit summary when you get an instant online quote. The quote page will also tell you how much each plan costs and has links to the policy wording, which details the coverage in full.
Which plan should I choose?
That’s your decision to make. Ask yourself, how much cover will you need if something goes wrong? Only you know where you’re planning to go, how much you paid, what you’re planning to do, see and visit, and how your personal situation might influence your choice.
This is only a summary of cover and does not include the full terms and conditions of the policy. You should read your policy wording in full so you understand what is and isn’t covered. That way there won’t be any surprises if you need to use it. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

I was 8 weeks pregnant but two days before I was due to travel, I had to go the hospital for an emergency scan because I had some bleeding. I was told that the baby's heart had stopped beating. The doctors told me that I have to wait until it comes out naturally, which could happen anytime in the next 14 days, so therefore they told me I cannot travel for health risks.
