Find the right travel insurance for your trip.

  • Trusted by:

This information is for US travelers. Taking the time to compare travel insurance policies can be the difference between making sure you get help when you need it most… or being left uncovered. That’s why World Nomads has made comparing our travel insurance simple, so you can see at a glance what is and isn’t covered.

Getting it wrong can mean not being able to replace your lost baggage, or shelling out to hire skis when yours fails to arrive off the luggage conveyer belt.

How do I compare travel insurance policies?

You must make sure the policy you select will adequately cover you, so we suggest the best starting point is determining:

  1. What you’re planning on doing while on your trip
  2. Where you’re going
  3. How long you’ll be gone for

Once you’ve done that, the next step is to consider the level of cover you’ll need and what you’ll need coverage for. To help you, the claims we most often see are:

  • Overseas medical
  • Baggage
  • Cancellation

The other must-have is 24/7 worldwide assistance, so no matter where you are or what time it is, there’s someone just a phone call away waiting to help you and your family.

Which travel insurance policy do I need?

To compare travel insurance policies, just enter a few details online about yourself and you'll be able to compare our Standard and Explorer options, their benefits, and how much you’re covered for.

Flooded guestroom

While living on the third floor of a guesthouse in Cambodia, I woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and discovered that there was about 5 inches of water on my room floor. It turns out a pipe had burst and the water was seeping out of the walls. Unfortunately, my suitcases were under my bed, so everything in them got soaked- including my camera. Although I tried to reverse the water damage by putting my camera in a pot of rice for 24 hours, it did not help and now my camera will not function.
