The best travel insurance providers

World Nomads was established in 2000, and they were the first to provide an online travel insurance service for independent travelers. This was a market that large, traditional and faceless corporations shunned as they thought it was rife with fraud and not worth their time.
Today, the community of adventurers has since grown into a worldwide movement, and so has World Nomads. Solutions were designed and refined over two decades for travelers just like them, based on the three principles of freedom, safety and connection.
