Who’s covered by a family policy?

So you’re taking the kids this time? World Nomads loves nothing more than seeing our future Nomads exposed to the wonders of the world at an early age, which is why we can cover your kids or grandkids as dependents on your family policy. Be sure to list them as dependants when you buy your family policy so they’ll be covered.

Who is covered?

Mom and/or Dad plus their dependent children

What is a dependant?

For travel insurance purposes, that would be your kids who are travelling with you on the same itinerary and are:

  • Your natural, adopted, step, or foster children (you must be the legal guardian of any foster children and they must reside at your same address)
  • Under 21 years of age (or under 26 if a full-time student), or mentally or physically disabled and over 20 years of age

If the kids are dependents, are they still covered up to the same limits?

Yep! No need to worry as your kids are covered up to the same limits even though they are travelling as dependents.

Got a question? Just ask World Nomads or contact our Customer Service team.

Monkey Bite!

I was bitten by a monkey at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur. I went to a nearby clinic and they gave me a rabies shot, antibiotics to take for 4 days, pain medicine, and anti-inflammatory medicine.
