Find the best travel insurance for your trip.

  • Trusted by:

This content is for UK travellers only. Taking the time to compare travel insurance policies can be the difference between making sure you get help when you need it most… or being left uncovered.  That’s why World Nomads has made comparing our travel insurance simple, so you can see at a glance what is and isn’t covered.

Getting it wrong can mean not being able to replace your lost baggage, or shelling out for ski hire when yours fails to arrive off the luggage conveyer belt.

How do I compare travel insurance policies?

You must make sure the policy you select will adequately cover you, so we suggest the best starting point is determining:

  1. What you are planning on doing
  2. Where you are going
  3. How long you’ll be gone for

Once you’ve done that, the next step is to consider the level of cover you’ll need and what you’ll need coverage for. To help you, the claims we most often see are:

  • Overseas medical
  • Baggage
  • Cancellation

The other must have is 24/7 worldwide assistance so no matter where you are or what time it is, there’s someone just a phone call away waiting to help you and your family.

Which travel insurance policy do I need?

To compare travel insurance policies just enter a few details online about yourself and you'll be able to compare our Standard and Explorer options, their benefits, and how much you’re covered for.

I was riding my mountain bike when I hit something and went over my handle bars. I put both hands out and broke my wrists and knocked myself out. I woke up in an ambulance and then went to Whistler Health Care Centre where I had x rays and further treatment.
