We believe the best travel insurance is the kind that allows you to travel overseas knowing you’re properly covered for your adventure… at the best price.

At World Nomads we’re travelers too and know 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 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.

Travel Insurance: What's included?

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

So we've built our policies to help cover as many of those unexpected situations as we can. All of our policies have cover for: 

  • Overseas Medical
  • Luggage/baggage cover
  • Cancellation
  • 24/7 worldwide assistance

Of course, each policy is different but have many more benefits. Be sure to read the policy wording so you know what you're covered for.

Travel Insurance: What's best for you?

As no two travelers are alike and range from gap year students and backpackers to long term travelers and families, we offer two options, Standard and Explorer so you can choose the level of cover that is right for you.

If you need the extras you can pay for them and if you don’t, then you can keep a little extra in your back pocket.

Consistently matched expectations.

World Nomads has consistently matched my expectations as dependable travel insurance. They can easily be reached and address claims rapidly. Look no further and sign up for your next trip.
