Has anyone used them. I got a good quote from them that covered my digital camera and my ipod. It is on this site so it cant be bad but i figured I would check with you all.

I was just looking at the site right now. It looks like they cover each of your personal items for up to AUD$250, so I won't be taking any extra insurance on my digicam. I have a digital camera, mp3 player and palm pilot. They each cost around $250, so I'll stick with the standard insurance. Don't know how much yours is worth though.

I've heard many great reviews about them on Lonely Planet.

I've never used them because I've got an insurance tied in with another insurance, but Pete's used them at least twice and really likes them. From working with them, I know they're extremely professional and quick to respond which I think would be no different for customers. The fact that their underwriters are the number one or two insurance company in the world also scores a lot of points in my book...

I use them now (my normal one stopped covering me once i was on sabatical), but have never had to claim. Not heard a bad thing about them, and bizarely for an insurance company, they have a great sense of humour as well...

Yes, they do have a sense of humour, which is just another thing that makes dealing with them more pleasant than most big ugly insurance companies.

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 took out insurance with World Nomads in January and went for the extra cover for my digital camera, memory card and Mp3 player. At the time, I hummed and hawwed over whether to do it or not, but not that they have all been robbed (grrr) I´m very glad to have it. World Nomads were really prompt in getting back to me when it happened and on advising me what to do....I still havent actually sent off the claim yet, but will do soon. So we´ll see how they measure up!
