Cheap may not always be the way to go.

Most travelers spend more on their vacation wardrobe than their travel insurance policy. Knowing you may have coverage for unexpected expensive travel mishaps like medical emergencies and stolen luggage can ensure you don’t end up in the red on holiday. We may not be the cheapest, but our affordable travel insurance plans can protect you against thousand of dollars worth of emergency expenses and can help our travelers when they need it most.

Do you really want cheap travel insurance?

Whether you’re traveling domestic, international or worldwide, low-cost travel insurance is only good if it meets your needs. Travel insurance is not one-size-fits-all, so think about what's most important to you, and read your policy wording for your chosen plan before you buy.

Going too cheap can mean you may not be covered when it matters to you. And if you’re not covered… your trip of a lifetime can get very expensive, very fast. That’s why at World Nomads we listened to our experienced travelers and designed travel insurance that is flexible and covers participation in more than 200 activities, at an affordable price.

We’ve included the cover options you told us you couldn’t live without in every World Nomads policy including:

Travel insurance that has your back

We’ve designed two travel insurance options: a Standard Plan and an Explorer Plan, so you can choose the coverage that might work best for you.

If you’re planning travel far from home or going off the beaten path, the Explorer Plan may be more suited to you. Then again, you might be surprised by what is covered under the Standard Plan. Only you can decide what travel insurance plan is right for you, so be sure to read the policy wording for whatever plan you choose, so you can make sure it suits your needs.

To get a quote, all you need to do is tell us your country of residence, your age, where you’re going, and how long you’ll be gone for, and we’ll generate your instant quote with all the details you need. You’ll be able to download the policy wording and compare options before you buy.

This is not a full list of what is and isn’t covered, so please check your policy for a full list of terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions that may apply to your specific plan. Any example scenarios provided above are not a guarantee of coverage. All claims are subject to review, require documentation and are considered individually. If you have any questions about what is and is not covered, please reach out – we’re happy to help.

Did you know travel insurance covers...

You can also buy away from home or buy more cover if you extend your trip. Plus, you can claim online anytime, anywhere in the world.

Surfing accident.

Surfing at Nusa Lembongan, located off the island of Bali, Indonesia, during a two month surf trip. I sustained fall and landed on coral reef, causing a laceration to my anus of roughly 2 and 1/2 centimeters as well as severe cuts to my feet. Upon arriving back to Bali in a matter of several hours, I immediately received treament for my wounds at the Bali International Medical Center. They provided me with a thorough examination as well as an assotment of anti-biotics and other general medical supplies.
