Wanting to know more about travel insurance and what it does?
In most cases, traveling goes without a hitch. Yet, medical bills can be crippling if you’re accidently injured or unexpectedly ill overseas. For that alone, travel insurance is worth it.
We’ve listed three of the main things people want cover for, but there are many more – have a look at our list of benefits!
Medical and medical evacuation
If there’s one big reason to buy travel insurance, this is it. In many cases, if you get sick, the hospital won’t treat you without upfront payment or providing proof of an insurance policy.
World Nomads travel insurance can cover overseas medical expenses including:
This is not a full list of what's covered. There are limits and conditions that apply, so for more information check out our article on overseas medical coverage and read your policy carefully before you buy.
Have to cancel your trip? When you start paying for your airfares and accommodation, it only makes sense to protect what you've spent in case you can't travel. All of our policies can help cover flights and accommodation if:
Bags go missing from airline check-ins and things get stolen too. Loss of personal belongings is one the main reasons people buy travel insurance. Despite tracking, barcodes and all the rest of it, it’s not all that uncommon for a bag or two to go astray on flights. Hope it’s not yours.
If it is, our policies can help you for loss, theft or damage when your bag is checked in with a carrier. We can also cover you essential items if your bag is delayed – think toiletries, undies, a clean shirt and some socks.
Don’t forget to read the policy wording when you hit the quote button as all plans are different – don’t just assume your gear is covered in every situation, as conditions or exclusions may apply.
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.
