Our experience with World Nomads dates back to a 2-week sailing trip to Greece & Croatia in 2013. For the past 2 years, we’ve been using their travel insurance exclusively.
Travel insurance from World Nomads is available to people from 140 countries. It’s designed for adventurous travelers with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities.
You can even buy and claim online, after you’ve left home — which we needed to do in Ecuador last year. Figuring out how to buy travel insurance if you’re already traveling isn’t as easy as you might think.
