  • Trusted by:

If you’ve left home without travel insurance or your policy has run out and you’re still on the road, World Nomads has got you covered. With World Nomads, you can buy a policy online, anytime, from anywhere in the world.

We know it’s easy to forget to buy travel insurance. That’s why we’ve designed simple and flexible travel insurance so you can buy what you need, when you need it, even while traveling. If you forgot to buy a policy before you started your trip, are outside your home country without insurance, or your cover has ended but your trip hasn’t, you can buy a World Nomads policy 24/7 online.

If you buy a policy while traveling, waiting periods, conditions and restrictions on cover do apply. For trip cancellation benefits, you may have to wait up to 24 hours for your plan to become effective.

However, most policies can cover you straight away if you're injured in an accident after you buy a policy. Your policy wording will have full details to understand the cover, limits and exclusions.

Malaria at Christmas.

In the 25th of December I woke up feeling nausea, fever, headache, and lethargy. After two days with the symptoms not ceasing I went to a clinic and was admitted with severe malaria. I stayed in the hospital for two days taking shots for malaria and also saline drip.
