We get it – you want to escape the hustle and unwind under a blanket of stars. From lush northern European forests to the endless horizons of Australia’s Outback, a camping trip offers every manner of revival. As exciting as planning your outdoor adventure is, traveling far from home and urban comforts also comes with risks.

World Nomads Travel Insurance Standard and Explorer plans have been designed to cover sudden and unforeseen events that can happen when camping, such as when your hiking gear goes missing or if you slip and fall on the trails.

What’s covered for camping?

When you’re roughing it in the woods, your travel insurance plan should get your back. World Nomads provides coverage for:

  • Baggage protection: has your tent, sleeping bag or camping chairs gone missing? Our gear coverage may help with replacing or reimbursing belongings.
  • Emergency medical: camping and fresh air can be great for the body and soul but not if it ends up in an accident. Emergency medical coverage can help protect you against a mountain of medical bills if you get sick or injured.
  • Evacuation: your campground may be located deep in the wilderness far from medical assistance. Emergency evacuation coverage can get you to a medical facility.  Call our 24/7 Emergency Team as they will have to pre-authorize your transportation arrangements.
  • Trip cancellation: an emergency at home could prevent you from going on your trip. With this benefit, you can get reimbursed for your non-refundable, pre-paid expenses such as your accommodations and flights. 
  • Adventure activities: if you’re planning on hitting the mountain biking trails or trekking to the top of craggy peaks, our plans cover more than 150 adventure sports and activities, which you can read more about in our Help Center article.

What’s not covered?

Some things we may not cover include:

  • Any pre-existing medical conditions, as defined in your policy.
  • Expenses that can be recovered from another source, such transport carriers or accommodation providers.
  • Unattended baggage or personal items.
  • Working or participating professionally in any activity or sport.
  • Any search-and-rescue missions.
  • Misuse of alcohol or drugs to the extent that it risks your health or impairs your faculties.

This is not a full list of what’s covered and what’s not; please check your policy for a full list of limitations and exclusions that may apply to your specific plan. If you have questions about your coverage, please contact us for help.

True Claims Stories

  • 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.

  • I recently had a serious injury traveling on my own & the team was amazing. Being confused with a brain injury they took care of everything. Claiming was no problem, they were on the phone constantly to see if all was OK. I can't recommend them enough. Absolutely fantastic & l will always travel with World Nomads Insurance. Thanks guys for getting me home safely.
