Cover your devices when traveling or working away from home

  • Trusted by:

In today’s tech-centric world, taking your gadgets on the road is just as common and essential as packing an extra pair of socks. That's why our travel insurance plans have been designed for digital nomads.

How are my electronics covered?

World Nomads may be able to replace, repair or recover the costs of your tech devices when stolen, lost or damaged under your supervision. Benefits are available only after exhausting other sources of compensation, such as from your common carrier. 

Remember, depreciation and wear and tear are taken into account, and claims are subject to per item and total maximum benefit amounts.  

What's not covered by travel insurance?

  • When you mindlessly leave your gear behind.
  • If it was stolen from an unattended car or other unsupervised place.
  • Gear or equipment that you use for professional purposes.
  • Electronic malfunctions (you'll have to hit up the manufacturer).
  • When you fail to file a loss or theft report with the local authorities or the representative of the venue where it took place, such as a common carrier, tour operator or other travel provider.
     

This is not a full list of what's covered and not covered.  Other terms, conditions and exclusions may apply so please read your policy carefully. 

If you’re not sure if something is covered or how to claim, contact us and we’ll let you know. 

Tips for Digital Nomads

  • Find and scan your receipts before your leave.
  • If an airline loses your gadgets, notify them right away and get a record.
  • Theft? Report it to the police within 24 hours.
  • If you’ve got a handset or tablet that can be blocked, block it.
  • Make a claim within seven days; submit documentation within 90 days. 

Bumpy Ride in India

On an overnight train from Mumbai to Jodhpur in India, I had the top sleeper berth. It was a very bumpy ride, and my tote bag tipped over while I was sleeping. I got woken up by the sound of my camera hitting the floor. When I picked it up, the display screen on the back of the camera was grey/black and hasn't worked since.

  • How do my items get depreciated?
    Electronics age and get knocked about. Depreciation happens to match the claim to the item’s current price, not original retail price. If you have the receipts, your items will be reduced in value by 10% percent for each year from the purchase date.
