Trip Resumption | What's Covered and How It Works

At World Nomads, we understand that unexpected circumstances can sometimes cut short your travel plans. With our Explorer Plan, you can travel knowing that we offer trip resumption coverage tailored to your needs as a UK explorer. Let's take a look at how our plan provides the necessary support for you to resume your trip.

Coverage for trip resumption (Eplorer Plan only)

We understand the importance of continuing your adventures, and our plan ensures that you can pick up where you left off (subject to policy terms and conditions):

  • if you are repatriated home due to an accidental injury or serious illness; or
  • if you need to return home due to the accidental injury, serious illness, or the death of a close relative.

Please note, trip resumption cover is not available to travellers with the Standard Plan.

Eligibility and policy requirements

  • To be eligible for trip resumption coverage, you must have an active Explorer Plan policy that covered your unexpected return home and has not expired.
  • You must inform us within 30 days of your return home to initiate the process.
  • Our team will assess your situation and, if approved, provide coverage for your additional travel expenses in economy class to the destination where you would have been according to your original travel plan.

Exclusions and limitations

It's important to note that travel insurance does not cover every situation. We encourage you to review the policy wording for comprehensive terms and conditions, coverage limits, and exclusions. Here are some key points to consider:

  • The incident causing your return home must be covered under the policy to qualify for trip resumption coverage.
  • The resumption of your trip must take place within the same insurance period as the incident.
  • Any additional expenses resulting from the medical condition that led to your return home will be considered a pre-existing medical condition at the time of resuming your trip.

At World Nomads, we strive to provide coverage that supports your travel aspirations. With our Explorer Plan, you can resume your interrupted trips, knowing that we have you covered. Read the policy wording for full details and embark on your adventures with the assurance that we're here to assist you along the way.
