World Nomads travel insurance plans include coverage for trip cancellation and trip interruption. If you need to delay, cancel or reschedule your trip before you leave home, you may be able to make a claim for covered costs.
There are a million reasons why you might want to cancel your trip. Maybe you’re fighting with your travel companions and can’t stand the thought of spending time with them. Or maybe you decided that the money might be better spent somewhere else. Or it could be as simple as you’ve just changed your mind.
While travel insurance won’t cover these reasons, there are a number of other events that qualify for trip cancellation cover. For example:
If you need to cancel for a covered reason, you may be able to be reimbursed for pre-paid, non-refundable travel arrangements that you didn’t use. These could include accommodations, flights and tours.
You’ll need to notify your travel suppliers and World Nomads within 72 hours and send the following documentation with your claim (as it applies to your case) within 90 days:
Claims can be reimbursed only for trip expenses paid in cash, credit or check (deposits and payments made in vouchers or mileage points don’t qualify for coverage).
