Anybody know any decent companies that will sell insurance to a US citizen? It seems all the links from this site are UK biased...

Your best bet is to do a google; Cheap Travel Insurance, and check out what comes up or else check the Travel Shops in the Malls!!

Hi Daver,

We have actually compared two insurance policies available to people of any citizenship on this page.

I have personally used the World Nomads one about half a dozen times now and been quite happy with it. I've never had to claim anything though, which is of course the real test.

Thanks to both of you for the help.

I've been insured with World Nomads for three years of travel so far. Their rates were the best, their cover extensive, and when I did need to make a claim for medical expenses, their service was fantastic. Everything can be done online, although I did of course have to post them my medical documents.

I ended up with a policy called Diplomat LT (I'm blanking on the company but I believe it's AIG) after a lot of research on policies. I chose them over World Nomads even though they were more expensive for two reasons, one for the handover policy - if you get sick on the road and get seriously ill they are affiliated with major insurers who won't refuse claims saying that this was a pre-existing condtition from when you were not insured (several health insurance companies we spoke with would not accept World Nomads as comprehensive coverage - and accept the handover), and for the moment I've forgotten the second one (I'll have to ask my wife).

Anyhow the coverage was better.
