We were in Byblos, Lebanon and bought a Labneh (local cheese and olive) wrap from a cafe. Whilst eating the wrap I bit down on something hard, it turned out to be a massive olive stone. The stone cracked 3 of my teeth. One completely cracked and the other two damaged. It was incredibly painful. Fortunately the person we were staying with contacted their dentist who opened up their surgery that evening and treated me.

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.
