“No hassles on claiming”

Written on: 03/09/2014 by rgjohnson (1 review written)

After reading a whole lot of bad reviews I was terrified when my daughter caught chicken pox, leaving us unable to fly home as I was told they could not replace the flight until the children were deemed fit to fly (2 weeks later), nor could they confirm over the phone whether the flight would definately be rebooked. Whilst the uncertainty caused us alot of stress, the outcome was perfect. Upon submission of the fitness to fly a replacement flight was booked within 24 hours, and my claim for… Read Full Review

“Easy sign up”

Written on: 02/10/2013

Excellent overview of services included. Hope I don't need it but good peace of mind with all insurances (health, baggage & cancellation) covered under one. Not cheap but fair price and hopefully reliable as endorsed by the lonely planet. The excess explanation was a bit confusing, I need an example to understand the insurance jargon. Would recommend this insurance but I suppose the proof comes when you need to use it. Hope I can depend on you Nomads! :) … Read Full Review

Hi

Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. We're really pleased you liked what you saw on our website and the policy suits your needs.

To clarify, the 'excess' is an amount charged by the insurer when you make a claim for one ‘event’. If for example, you break your arm while travelling, then you can submit a claim for the costs associated with doctors consultation fees, x-rays, prescribed medication and follow up doctors visits. As all this treatment would be under the one 'event', the excess is charged only once. You would submit all the costs for the treatment you received while travelling and your reimbursement (should the claim be successful) would be the total amount claimed less excess amount.

Safe travels,
Kellie

“Excellent cover”

Written on: 20/09/2013

This is my 3rd policy with World Nomads & used them to cover others too! Great cover, just hoping that they'll use actual dates soon rather than 'blocks' to make it even more affordable. Disclaimer, I've yet to make a claim, but I hope the same level of service will apply should I need to!… Read Full Review

I`m very interested in these king of insurance companies. I prefer especific policies for activities in nature and outside and worldnomads offered me the possibility of choose my favourite sport for my next adventure trip!

“Easy to navigate web site and understand policy cover”

Written on: 15/08/2013

I have used World Nomads a number of times and been impressed with the ease of signing up for cover over a variety of time periods. Most recently, I was able to include a sporting activity that I wanted to pursue, which made my holiday stress free. Price is good and I have had quick response from customer service when asking for clarification. … Read Full Review

“Claiming on a policy”

Written on: 08/08/2013 by jessbaily (1 review written)

In July/August of 2012 I travelled with a friend to West Africa. We spent time in Ghana, Togo and Benin. It was amazing!.... unfortunately whilst in Benin I fell extremely ill with malaria and needed to be admitted to hospital. I was really sick and my friend was fantastic in looking after me :). She called World Nomads as soon as the malaria was diagnosed and the consultant (doctor?) she spoke to was fantastic. HE explained to her what she needed to do, needed to keep records of and what she… Read Full Review

“a good reason”

Written on: 31/07/2013 by weblem (1 review written)

Just opening the main page and you feel that it's a good choice! Everything is clear and you don't need to search the main object that sometimes is hidden. The insurance cover almost all the possible accidents. I was thinking: it may be I do something different instead of my standard holidays, and so I decided it was the my insurance! … Read Full Review

“Flexible cover for travellers”

Written on: 31/07/2013 by mikanqueen (1 review written)

World Nomads offer a cover which not only suits typical travellers, but which is flexible for those of us who need something a bit out-of-the-ordinary. I am not a backpacker, but will be away for months/years. I want to come back home to the UK from time to time but be able to resume my cover when I leave without taking out a new policy. I want to protect a couple of gadgets without paying over the odds. I work abroad, so need medical cover. And I want to be able to extend my policy without… Read Full Review

Easy to use, had a promo code, which gave a small discount. I compared them with a few other insurance companies and the prices were all very similar, however WorldNomads seemed to cover more for the money you are paying. The website was easy to navigate and very straight forward… Read Full Review

“Good online platform for quick access to insurance”

Written on: 29/07/2013 by pclemison (1 review written)

Not had experience with customer service or claims yet, but the process of buying the insurance and clarity/simplicity of the website made this insurance company the one of choice for me. As someone who travels a lot, I need to be able to quickly and easily (and cost-effectively) make a purchase for travel insurance. This is one of the few that allow you, as a British Citizen, apply for travel insurance after you've left the country. I hope that the customer service and claims team is as good… Read Full Review

“Online Insurer”

Written on: 26/07/2013 by Dakidatwork (1 review written)

I travel for business on a constant basis, World Nomads provides the flexibility I require for International travel considering destinations are very broad, policies that are annual can be costly if the EU & US are destinations but NOT regular. Over the course of a year the overall cost of insuring is quite reasonable Well worth trying… Read Full Review

“a good solution to travelling from a country not my own”

Written on: 25/07/2013 by channailana (1 review written)

This insurer was the only reliable one I found to take out travel insurance from a country outside my permanent residence. It turned out that one cannot buy travel insurance in places you are staying temporarily, and my home country does not insure me for pronlonged stays abroad. Nomads has served me well on frequent trips that started and returned to a different country than my own. It is simple and reasonably priced. I hope they will provide a solution to their age limit of 66, which I am… Read Full Review

“Getting insured whilst traveling”

Written on: 13/12/2012

I'm a UK resident and have been traveling around the world now for two years, no real plan, just drifting from one place to another, currently in New Zealand. My original UK insurance was with Insur&Go and was the cheapest for the cover that I could find in the UK (Worldwide annual cover), so that's the one I purchased. The website seem to me to indicate you could obtain up to a maxium of 18months and you can extend/renew! This maybe true but when mine ran out I was in Australia and I couldn't… Read Full Review
