A True Claims Story

  • Never travel without insurance. I bought trekking insurance with World Nomads in Dec 2016 for my trek to Everest Base Camp. I came down with severe mountain sickness on my trip, and WN covered my helicopter rescue and all of my hospital expenses. They made it extremely easy for me and I am just so happy I went with them. If I hadn't gone with them, I would've been forced to pay around $12,000 for heli rescue as there was no possible way I could walk down. Thanks for your help World Nomads!

  • I contracted dengue typhoid fevers in Bali. The doctor and medical expenses incurred, were all paid within 10 days of claim, which I submitted by email from Bali. Monies were paid into my bank account - efficient and simple!

  • On a recent holiday to Thailand, my IPhone suffered water damage on a boat trip. World Nomads were very prompt with my claim and covered the entire cost quoted by Apple to repair the damage. It is the second time I have used World Nomads for travel insurance, however this was the first claim I have had to make. I will definitely be using them again! Thanks for your help!
