We’ve seen some pretty hairy accidents and illnesses, from aneurysms to scooter accidents, and at least one shark bite! When the unexpected happens, our 24/7 emergency medical assistance teams will support you and your family, so you can focus on getting better.
If you’re injured or get sick while you’re traveling, and you’ve bought the policy for the activities you’re doing, you can be covered for:
We also have 24 hour multi-lingual assistance teams who can guide you to the nearest hospital, set up direct payments to the medical facility, and help you navigate local customs. Coverage may depend on your past medical history, what's happened to you, and any other conditions, limits, or exclusions of cover as described in your policy.
Travel insurance isn’t designed to cover everything. Common claims for overseas medical expenses we see where there's no cover include:
This is not a full list of what's covered and what's not covered. There are limits and conditions that apply, so for more information check out our articles on overseas medical coverage and adventure sports coverage, and read your policy carefully before you buy.
It’s essential that you get in contact with our assistance teams as soon as possible so that our teams can support you from the time you fall sick or get injured until the time you're well again.
So that our Emergency Assistance teams can assist you quickly, please be ready with the following:
While visiting the Monkey Forest in Bali, I was bitten by a monkey and blood was drawn. After returning to our hotel we then visited a local doctor the same evening of the bite. I received the first Rabies vaccination and then went to the International SOS office in Bali for an examination. There I received a second rabies shot, and then immunoglobin shots.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and travel - what you need to know
We understand that the spread of COVID-19 has impacted your daily lives, as well as your travel plans. In these uncertain times we want to help you to understand the coverage you can receive with one of our World Nomads travel protection plans and how it relates to COVID-19. If you are considering cancelling your trip please read your travel protection plan documents carefully. Cancellations due to fear of travel are not covered under the plan. However, our plan does not exclude losses associated with pandemic or epidemic conditions; meaning that if you, your traveling companion or family member were to become sick (after you purchase the plan) as a result of the COVID-19 virus, you could still receive benefits for losses covered by the plan. Please reach out to Trip Mate, our plan administrator, with questions about your coverage.
