World Nomads travel insurance. More than you expect.

Worldwide cover

The level of worldwide cover in our travel insurance policy recognises the needs of young, independent and adventurous backpackers. So there is cover for skiing and diving rather than for travel delays and missed connections, which most travellers take in their stride as part of the trip.

And of course, everything is online. From changing your details to making a claim, you can do it all online.

Cover your Adventure

World Nomads travel insurance covers every country in the world, and from Bungee Jumping in New Zealand to white-water rafting in Nepal or skiing in Colarado, we also cover most adventure sports. Find out if what you want to do is covered with our simple guide to adventure.

Extend and claim online, while you are still away

Travel plans often change. That is what's exciting. Unlike other insurers, who don't allow you to extend or purchase again outside your country of residence, World Nomads allows you to extend your policy indefinitely.

And since you will probably be away for a while we recognised that you can't wait until you get home to make a claim, so we put it all online. You can submit claims, but more importantly also liaise with the claims department until it is settled.

And you can do so 24/7 from anywhere in the world.

Digital camera's, iPod's and computers

Because it's your duty to make your friends mad with envy, you probably travel with a digital camera to email your pictures back home. That's why we cover iPods, laptops and other valuable equipment.

24/7 Global Emergency Assistance

24/7 Global Emergency Assistance is provided by Mondial Assistance, the largest travel assistance company in the world, with over 35 call centres in 28 countries.

Underwritten by Allianz

For peace of mind, World Nomads travel insurance is underwritten by Allianz Australia Insurance Limited (ABN52097227177. AFS Licence No.245631).
