Some travellers prefer to set off on a journey of exploration with out a set itinerary, agenda or even particular destinations. These independent & backpacker travellers have some unique insurance requirements.
As they travel, they may need to extend their insurance, if their journey is longer than expected. Their program needs to allow for this.
Communicating with their insurance provider, whether for a claim or for coverage extensions or other changes, needs to be simple and reliable. The Internet has become almost ubiquitous, and provides the best approach.

Worldwide and low cost cover.
World Nomads travel insurance. More than you expect.
Travel plans often change. That is what's exciting. Unlike other insurers, who don't allow you to extend or purchase again outside your country of residence, World Nomads allows you to extend your policy indefinitely.
And since you will probably be away for a while we recognised that you can't wait until you get home to make a claim, so we put it all online. You can submit claims, but more importantly also liaise with the claims department until it is settled.
And you can do so 24/7 from anywhere in the world.
An online travel insurance company you can trust
We recognise that if you do have an accident while you are away, you need the confidence that you will be looked after. There is no point in having low cost travel insurance if you can't trust it when you really need it, so genuine 24/7 emergency assistance is provided by Mondial Assistance, the world's largest travel insurance and assistance company.
Travel Insurance for iPods, digital cameras and adventure sports
World Nomads travel insurance not only covers every country in the world, but also most of the more exciting activities - from bungee jumping in New Zealand, to white water rafting in Nepal to snow boarding in Colorado. And because it's your duty to make your friends mad with envy, you also probably travel with a digital camera to email your pictures back home. It's why we cover such items as well as iPods, laptops and other valuable equipment.
Costly Emergency Medical or Evacuation
Medical expenses account for the largest proportion of claims made by travellers. While it's obviously essential to have insurance if you are going to do something hazardous such as white-water rafting, most medical claims are actually for everyday illnesses rather than major accidents. Between 20 and 25 per cent of all travellers are struck down with travellers' diarrhoea. In many cases, this can be treated with simple medication but it is not unusual for people to be hospitalised.
Money Back Guarantee
Changed your mind? No worries. Our simple 14-day money back guarantee allows you to cancel your policy anytime within the first 14 days, if you haven't left or made any sort of claim. Just log on to the site and cancel the policy yourself, and we'll give you a refund. Easy.
