Hi Folks,

have any of you good people taken out RTW travel insurance with World Nomads (Australian company)?

They seem to cover everything the budding backpacker requires, and are cheaper than any comparable policy offered by a UK company so...

...what's the catch?

Has anyone had any experience of making a claim through them, and if so, was it handled well?

Any thoughts on the above or suggestions for other good (cheap!) insurance companies would be gratefully received.

Thanks, and happy trails!

Andy

Hey Andy,

I've used them numerous times. Never had to make a claim (and hopefully never will have to :)), so that makes it somewhat hard to judge. They are backed by a very large and reputable insurance company though, so I don't imagine there being anything unkosher about their product. We've actually compared them on our site with another popular backpacker insurance on this page. There are also certainly other options out there, but not many that are available to people from a wide range of nationalities like these two are.

Also, it would be worth doing a forum search, as they have been discussed on here several times before already.

Yes, it is one of the major concern of many travellers around the world, perhaps...
