Travel insurance can help with medical emergencies and evacuation if you get into an accident
Accidents have a way of catching you off guard – that’s why they’re called accidents. You could be skiing in the Alps when you fracture your wrist, or trekking on a remote peak when you sprain your ankle. Rather than going into panic mode or descending into downright despair, how about turning to your travel insurance? Your World Nomads plan can provide coverage if you have a travel accident, including medical treatment, hospital stays, ambulance rides, and more.
When you get injured while traveling, World Nomads may be able to cover you under different sections of your policy.
Accidents can happen abruptly without warning, so keep our contact numbers handy, and if the worst happens, you can get assistance quickly. Our 24/7 Emergency Assistance Team can help you out with a lot of things, including:
For some of these services, such as evacuation, you’ll need to get pre-authorization from us; it’s always a good idea to ask us about our vetted network of providers and verify your coverage. We want you to get the best health outcome while maximizing your travel insurance benefits.
Accidental death and dismemberment
If you get seriously hurt – and lose your sight, a limb, or even your life – you (or a designated beneficiary) can get compensated for the loss, up to the maximum benefit amount specified in your policy.
The loss must have occurred within 365 days of the accident to receive benefits. We won’t get into the details here, but let’s just say that although the coverage is there, no amount of money is worth more than your limbs or your life.
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 emergency medical and adventure sports coverage, and read your policy carefully before you buy.
World Nomads plans build in benefits that support you should you unexpectedly get sick while traveling. Our medical coverage includes benefits for serious illnesses, such as COVID-19, or being placed under strict quarantine by a physician or government mandate, among other scenarios.
This benefit helps you recover non-refundable, pre-paid trip costs when you have to cancel your trip for a covered reason, including for an unexpected sickness that keeps you from traveling.
The only thing worse than catching COVID-19 is getting infected away from home. If you get sick with COVID-19 or another illness, you can get diagnostic tests to confirm your case and other emergency medical benefits.
If you're in an inadequate medical facility, our plans have benefits that can arrange a transfer to a hospital capable of treating your medical needs.
During your travels, you might have to return home early. With trip interruption, you could get reimbursed for a one-way, economy-class ticket home and any pre-paid, unused portions of your trip if you need to change your plans for a covered reason.
Even when there isn’t a pandemic, traveling can have its bumps and hiccups. If your travels are delayed at least six hours by a covered event, you could get reimbursed for meals, hotels and other basic expenses.
Protect your hard earned vacation from unexpected cancellation.
