Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
Travel insurance is the most important travel purchase you will make.
Travel insurance is the first thing we buy as soon as we book a trip. Like all travellers, we like to know we are covered while we travel, especially in medical emergencies. But we also want to know we are covered before we travel for any unforeseen cancellations.
We have used World Nomads Travel Insurance since we started travelling full time over six years ago. In that time, we have made a few reasonably big claims. Both of which involved medical assistance while travelling. Each time we had access to support 24 hours a day and the resulting claims were straightforward.
We love that you can buy and claim online, even after you’ve left home. Perfect if you need to extend your coverage while you’re still travelling.
