Can I buy travel insurance for travel on a one-way ticket?

Traveling on a one-way ticket? Don’t have a return flight booked? No problem!

You don’t need a round-trip ticket to buy a World Nomads travel insurance policy. Unlike other travel insurers, you can also buy a policy while already traveling, with or without a ticket home. You can also buy more coverage on the road.

But there are some things to consider if you’re traveling on a one-way ticket:

  • Make sure that any countries you are vising allow travel on a one-way ticket. Many countries require proof of onward travel. You can visit to research your destinations’ requirements.

  • You’ll need to list all the countries you plan to visit when you purchase your travel insurance policy. If you’re not sure where your plans will take you, you can select ‘worldwide’ when you get a quote.

Travel insurance is not designed to cover everything, so take the time to read the terms, conditions, limits and exclusions in the policy wording for what is and is not covered. This way there are no surprises if you do need to use it. If you are unsure, contact us for help.
