Travel insurance that's easy to claim on from anywhere in the world.
Having been on the road for long periods ourselves, we know that waiting until you get home to lodge a claim isn’t always ideal. World Nomads gives you the freedom to claim from wherever you are and whenever you like, so you can keep travelling.
If you're already a World Nomads member, you'll just need to sign in, and follow the steps to make a new claim.
If you're not a member, you can either create an account which lets you lodge most claims electronically or you can get in touch with our customer service teams, who can help direct you as to how to make a claim.

I had been ill for several days with diarrhea and a bad cough. It was over Christmas so I wasn't able to get to the doctor. I was in La Paz. I visited the doctor and he gave me IV glucose to rehydrate me because of the diarrhea and he also gave me IV antibiotics for the cough and the diarrhea. Because of the cough (which was diagnosed as a bronchial infection) he kept me in hospital overnight. The doctor continued to treat me via IV and he then also gave me a nebuliser to loosen the cough. The next day I began to cough up phlegm. I stayed in the hospital for 2 nights in total.

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.
If you need medical assistance or emergency medical evacuation our team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year before and during your trip.
