About Coronavirus

We are aware various governments have changed their travel warnings to restrict travel during this time. To understand the impact on your policy, please go to our FAQs and choose your country of residence.

At World Nomads, we’re travelers too. We know that while everybody buys travel insurance to cover them when things go wrong, they’d rather be splashing out on a Bellini at Harry’s bar in Venice or upgrading their Bangkok standard room to include air conditioning.

That’s why we’ve designed our online travel insurance based on what you said you wanted… flexible online travel insurance that covers you for what you need, when you need it.

All policies include the benefits our travelers tell us are most important to them including:

  • Medical cover
  • Cover for over 200 adventure activities
  • Travel insurance with 24hr emergency assistance
  • Cancellation
  • Luggage cover

With World Nomads you can:

  • Tap into our global community of travelers, for tips on undiscovered local gems.
  • Learn the local lingo with free Language guides for your iPhone.
  • Share your travel stories with a free travel blog.
  • Learn new skills with our money-can't-buy travel scholarships.
  • Have a chance to help change lives with optional micro-donations.

A True Claims Story

I went to the hospital because I felt a fever and upon further testing they found it to be dengue fever. They also found an 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.
