I was so relieved and grateful to all of the World Nomads team to get insurance cover for my treatment this week whilst I have been sick in Vietnam. Thank you for all your hard work and understanding to manage my complicated case with negotiations and international correspondence. I received a truly professional service from you. U.K resident in Vietnam I was riding my mountain bike when I hit something and went over my handle bars. I put both hands out and broke my wrists and knocked myself out. I woke up in an ambulance and then went to Whistler Health Care Centre where I had x rays and further treatment.

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.
