A True Claims Story

  • Never travel without insurance. This was the first time I ever purchased travel insurance and I am so glad I did. A few days into my trip to Spain I twisted my foot heading down to the metro. Thanks to World Nomads I was able to get medical attention in Spain and since, as luck would have it, I had a fracture that required surgery, they got me a flight home the next day. Filing a claim was surprisingly easy and when the claim was finally processed, I was reimbursed for all of my expenses including things like the extra week in the hotel I didn't get to take advantage of.

  • My wide fell in our house and broke her right kneecap. She had to have surgery and the doctor says she has to stay off her right leg for 8 weeks. I had to cancel my trip to Israel because I have to stay in the house and be her caregiver.

    U.S. resident
  • I went to the hospital because I felt a fever and upon further testing they found it to be dengue fever. They also found a infection in my liver which made the process of getting better take longer than usual. I stayed in the hospital for 8 days before I was discharged.
