At World Nomads, we’re travellers too. We know that 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 standard room 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.

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

  • Medical cover
  • Cover for a wide range of adventure activities
  • Travel insurance with 24hr emergency assistance
  • Trip Cancellation and Interruption
  • Luggage delay and loss cover


With World Nomads you can:

Did you know travel insurance covers...

You can also buy away from home or buy more cover if you extend your trip. Plus, you can claim online anytime, anywhere in the world.

True Claims Stories

  • Every contact we made, initially by phone and then online, was dealt with punctually, compassionately and effectively. Once we provided relevant documentation every claim - and there were quite a lot - was paid without delay or argument.
    Mary C.
  • My girlfriend and I were traveling as a couple in SE Asia for two months. During this time we both got extremely sick. The company staff of WN maintained contact with me throughout the entire process and refunded all medical expenses and even refunded the late checkout fees at our motel.
    Dan & Stef
  • All of the World Nomads staff we had contact with were professional, courteous and helpful. We dealt with one claims officer the whole time who was very understanding and reasonable, and put a lot of effort into processing our claim.
