Before elaborating on the details we need to clarify a couple of things:
First and foremost, never go anywhere without travel insurance!
Anything can happen in any given moment
Such is life. Here comes the day of your much anticipated journey exept that you wake up with a severe fever and a nasty cough. Your doctor prescribes you antibiotics and declares you unfit to travel. You have to cancel your flight.
Cancellation is an important part of every travel insurance policy. When you buy your policy before you depart, you’re covered if you’re seriously sick or injured and cannot start your trip. Some policies include coverage for pre-booked travel if your trip is interrupted after it starts. You can save a lot of money and free yourself from a lot of unpreasantness if you’re insured.
You can get sick any time
This doesn’t sound too good but it can happen any time. As in any given moment in life, there can be a health emergency during the journey as well, when it can become very important, sometimes life-saving if you have travel insurance. For instance, it’s not unheard of that from a country where the standard of health care did not allow urgent intervention, the patient had to be transported to another country. Times like this, WorldNomads.com’s travel insurance will allow the company’s own medical team to contact you, your family members and the local medical team in order for you to receive an immediate and the best possible medical care available and, if necessary, take you home. In some instances where there was an unforeseen health emergency, travel insurance covered a staggering $80.000 medical cost.
Adventure sports can be thrilling and exhillarating but they can go horribly wrong in an instance. A traveller was snowboarding in Canada and had a very bad accident, suffering a spinal injury. WorldNomad’s emergency teams and local medical staff assisted in getting the patient stabilized, then airlifted to a major hospital for treatment. The specialized spinal treatment was covered by the policy, as was the costs of returning the patient home, altogether $150.000.
Something unpleasant can happen any time
For instance that you are robbed. Unfortunately it can happen anywhere in the world. Being robbed is scary enough for anyone but it is made even more painful when you can’t recoup the cost of your stolen item. With WorldNomad.com travel insurance, not only can you receive reinbursement for the cost of stolen items, but you can also submit your claim online while travelling. The company does its best to make it easy and quick so travellers don’t have to wait any longer than necessary to have their claims handled.
After clarifying why it’s not advisable to travel without insurance, let’s look at the details:
You would rather not think about all the things that can go wrong on your trip, but these things can and do happen. The reason we chose to be partners with WorldNomads is because their travel insurance is designed for the independent travellers and for the intrepid families.
