What countries are covered by World Nomads travel insurance?

We'll cover all countries on your 'must visit' list EXCEPT those that have a specific ‘AGAINST ALL’ or ‘AVOID NON-ESSENTIAL TRAVEL’ warning against them issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs, the World Health Organisation (WHO) or similar body (unless you have contacted us and we have confirmed in writing that you will be covered).

As we’ve recently changed our insurer, please select the date you bought your policy:

Policies purchased on or after 1 Nov 2018 (GMT)

Policies purchased before 1 Nov 2018 (GMT)
 

For policies purchased on or after 1 Nov 2018:

We'll cover all countries on your 'must visit' list EXCEPT those that have a specific ‘AGAINST ALL’ or ‘AVOID NON-ESSENTIAL TRAVEL’ warning against them issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs, the World Health Organisation (WHO) or similar body (unless you have contacted us and we have confirmed in writing that you will be covered).

Government warnings can be issued or changed without notice at any time, so always check the status with the Department of Foreign Affairs and the World Health Organisation before you buy a policy and before you pay anything towards your trip.

Government sanctions may also restrict us from paying claims, so we’re unable to offer cover to travel sanctioned regions or countries. 

Sanctions and government warnings change, so we'll tell you when you get a quote if we can cover you to travel to a specific country or region. When you get a quote, you can add individual countries (Thailand, Vietnam, Laos) or regions (Asia, Europe, Worldwide) or a mix of both (Thailand, Vietnam, Asia). The more detail you give us on where you're going, the more helpful we can be.

Note: For policies purchased after 1 August 2019, your World Nomads policy is backed by XL Insurance Company SE. For policies purchased between 1 November 2018 and 16 January 2019, your World Nomads policy is backed by certain underwriters at Lloyd’s. For policies purchased between 17 Jan 2019 and 31 July 2019, your World Nomads policy is backed by Lloyd’s Insurance Company SA.

For policies purchased before 1 Nov 2018:

We'll cover all countries on your 'must visit' list EXCEPT those that have a specific ‘AGAINST ALL’ or ‘AVOID NON-ESSENTIAL TRAVEL’ warning against them issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs, the World Health Organisation (WHO) or similar body (unless you have contacted us and we have confirmed in writing that you will be covered).

Government warnings can be issued or changed without notice at any time, so always check the status with your Government travel advisory before you buy a policy and before you pay anything towards your trip, like deposits or the full amount (whichever is the later).

Government sanctions may also restrict us from paying claims in certain countries, so we don't feel right about offering cover in these countries. 

Sanctions and government warnings change, so we'll tell you when you get a quote if we can cover you to travel to a specific country or region. When you get a quote, you can add individual countries (Thailand, Vietnam, Laos) or regions (Asia, Europe, Worldwide) or a mix of both (Thailand, Vietnam, Asia). The more detail you give us on where you're going, the more helpful we can be.

Note: For policies purchased before 1 Nov 2018, your World Nomads policy is backed by Millstream.
