Travel smarter

Studying abroad is a great opportunity to learn about the world – and yourself. Ideally your lessons will be of the academic kind, but World Nomads can help if things go wrong.

Am I covered?

Your basic health and travel essentials will most likely be covered through your study-abroad organization. But World Nomads can cover you for a wide range of adventure activities or if you decide to extend your trip.

Our Standard and Explorer plans for US travelers cover you for emergency medical, evacuation, cancellation, and baggage, as well as over 200 adventure activities (depending on your level of coverage).

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 a 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.
