A selection of FAQ’s taken from the World Nomads website


Residents of over 140 countries can buy travel insurance, even if you’re already travelling or away from home.

World Nomads provides a global service. You can buy a policy for travel destinations outside your country of residence (or over 100 miles from home for USA residents and outside your province or territory of residence for Canadian residents). Select your country of residence, which is the home country that you will be repatriated to in the event of a medical emergency, and select ‘Continue’.


Prices vary depending on both duration and where you are travelling to. To find out how much a policy costs click on the Quote & Buy Online button below.


You have to buy the policy online using one of these credit cards:
* Australian / New Zealand customers: Visa, MasterCard
* United States customers : Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Diners, Discover
* Canadian customers : Visa, MasterCard
* United Kingdom / Irish customers: Visa, MasterCard
* Rest of the world customers: Visa, MasterCard


Your country of permanent residence can be defined as the country you would wish to be repatriated to in the event of a medical emergency and where you would be able to then receive long term medical care, if required. You must also be legally defined as a permanent resident (not temporary) of that country and have a residential address that you can refer to within that country.

Please be aware, your policy does not cover expenses incurred within your country of permanent residence. If you are a permanent resident of the USA or Canada traveling over 100 miles from home, your policy may cover expenses incurred within your country of permanent residence. Please refer to the policy wording / description of coverage for the full policy terms and conditions.


Some of our travellers find that their plans change and they find themselves ‘living’ somewhere else. Before changing your country of residence you will need to consider the question ‘Is this where I want to be repatriated?’. If you are able to receive medical treatment in this country, are able to enter and exit without restriction and consider yourself a permanent resident (not temporary) with a permanent address then you may wish to start a new membership with your new country.

Your current membership can only be linked to one country of residence. Please be aware, your policy does not cover expenses incurred within your country of permanent residence. If you are a permanent resident of the USA or Canada traveling over 100 miles from home, your policy may cover expenses incurred within your country of permanent residence. Please refer to the policy wording / description of coverage for the full policy terms and conditions.


Asthma or any other medical conditions, which you are aware of and might reasonably seek treatment for, are generally considered pre-existing medical conditions. World Nomads travel insurance excludes expenses relating to pre-existing medical conditions.

Please refer to the policy wording / description of coverage for your country of permanent residence for the full details. You can still take out a World Nomads policy with a pre-existing medical condition, however your claim may not be covered as a result of this condition.
