Travel Insurance - What we cover

Travel Insurance for independent Australian travellers. Nobody wants to think about all the things that might go wrong on their trip, but these things can and do happen.

World Nomads Travel insurance has been designed by travellers to cover everything you need. We make sure you’re covered, even if you run out of travel insurance on the road. We don't just keep you insured, with us you'll travel smarter and safer.

Standard Plan

Our Standard plan provides excellent levels of cover for those travellers heading out on an independent trip with less tech and fewer pre-booked travel arrangements. We’ve kept cancellation and baggage cover lower to make sure you pay only for what you need.

Explorer Plan

Our Explorer plan provides exceptional levels of cover. If you’ve pre-booked a tour or longer stretches of accommodation, our higher levels of cancellation give you added piece of mind and also larger benefits for those digital nomads looking for extra cover for electronic equipment.

Shattered arm in Argentina

I fell off a roof in Argentina and shattered my arm. Waking up in a local hospital was terrifying. I can’t imagine navigating that experience without World Nomads.

Shark bite in Bali

Whilst surfing in Bali, Indonesia I was attacked by a two metre Bull Shark. The bite to my right forearm had severed five tendons and most of the muscle. World Nomads travel insurance covered the costs of my medical bills up front.
