Simple and flexible travel insurance to take you camping around the world. Buy at home or while travelling, and claim online from anywhere in the world.
We get it. You want to escape from the hustle and unwind under a blanket of stars. From lush forests to the endless horizons of Australia’s Outback, a camping trip offers every manner of revival. As exciting as planning your outdoor adventure is, travelling far from home and urban comforts also comes with risks.
World Nomads Travel Insurance Standard and Explorer plans have been designed to offer cover for sudden and unforeseen events on your next camping trip such as being left empty handed when the airline loses your baggage (with your hiking gear in it), if you need to see a doctor if you are hurt or unwell or if severe weather washes away your travel plans.
Nothing soothes the soul like the crackle of a campfire. As passionate campers ourselves, we’ve designed our plans to cover all types of camping adventures:
Our plans can help you navigate any mishaps and help get you back on track. World Nomads may offer cover (up to the policy limits) for:
What’s a camping trip without some action?
Both our plans offer cover for activities such as bungee jumping, stand up paddle boarding/surfing and scuba diving up to 30 metres. While there are many activities available on the Standard plan, those feeling extra adventurous can upgrade to the Explorer Plan which offers higher benefits and a broader range of activities and sports pursuits. It costs more but it may better suit your needs as it offers upgrades for activities such as camping and hiking up to 6,000 metres, or mountaineering (with ropes, picks or specialist climbing equipment) up to 6,000 metres.
Travel insurance tip: Your cover will depend on the activity(ies) you chose at the time of policy purchase and terms and conditions apply for each activity. Level 1 sports and activities are automatically covered on the Standard and Explorer Plans. You can upgrade your cover for a range of other activities, experiences and manual work if you select the activities (listed as Level 2, 3 and 4) but you will need an upgrade to the Explorer Plan.

Never travel without insurance. This was the first time I ever purchased travel insurance and I am so glad I did. A few days into my trip to Spain I twisted my foot heading down to the metro. Thanks to World Nomads I was able to get medical attention in Spain and since, as luck would have it, I had a fracture that required surgery, they got me a flight home the next day. Filing a claim was surprisingly easy and when the claim was finally processed, I was reimbursed for all of my expenses including things like the extra week in the hotel I didn't get to take advantage of.
I recently had a serious injury traveling on my own & the team was amazing. Being confused with a brain injury they took care of everything. Claiming was no problem, they were on the phone constantly to see if all was OK. I can't recommend them enough. Absolutely fantastic & l will always travel with World Nomads Insurance. Thanks guys for getting me home safely.
I was bitten by a monkey at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur. I went to a nearby clinic and they gave me a rabies shot, antibiotics to take for 4 days, pain medicine, and anti-inflammatory medicine.

You can still purchase a World Nomads policy if you have a Pre-Existing Medical Condition (PEMC) – whether it is serious or not – but we won’t cover any claim/s made by any traveller under the policy as a result of this condition (this includes if you’re on separate or joint policies). This exclusion can’t be removed from the policy.
The Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) has a travel insurance directory on its Money Advice Service website, or you can contact the service on 0800 138 7777. This service provides details on what may be considered a PEMC, and travel insurance providers that may cover serious PEMCs, which may assist travellers wanting cover for these conditions.
