You never need insurance until you need it and then boy do you need it!
Should I Have Travel Insurance?
In our opinion, travelling to Africa and enjoying many of the activities available here, without adequate travel insurance is a very unwise decision, it should be a pre-requisite. Apart from the potential problems of delayed or cancelled flights and lost or damaged luggage, there are also limited medical facilities, remote locations and potentially hazardous activities all of which require decent Emergency Medical Cover.

"Just wanted to say thank you to this wonderful insurance company. When my husband notified the company that I had suffered a life threatening pulmonary embolism, World Nomads took care of everything. They contacted the hospital immediately and checked on my situation, A wonderful nurse called me everyday, speaking to doctors and making sure I understood what had happened and the course of my treatment. I would recommend World Nomads to every traveler. We are still travelling and until we return home will continue to insure with them." K.McMahon, Australian in Thailand
"Never travel without insurance. This was the first time I ever purchased travel insurance and I am so glad I did. A few days into my trip to Spain I twisted my foot heading down to the metro. Thanks to World Nomads I was able to get medical attention in Spain and since, as luck would have it, I had a fracture that required surgery, they got me a flight home the next day. Filing a claim was surprisingly easy and when the claim was finally processed, I was reimbursed for all of my expenses including things like the extra week in the hotel I didn't get to take advantage of." L. De Jesus, U.S. resident in Spain
"I recently had a serious injury traveling on my own & the team was amazing. Being confused with a brain injury they took care of everything. Claiming was no problem, they were on the phone constantly to see if all was OK. I can't recommend them enough. Absolutely fantastic & l will always travel with World Nomads Insurance. Thanks guys for getting me home safely." A.Brennan, Australian in Thailand
"I was bitten by a monkey at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur. I went to a nearby clinic and they gave me a rabies shot, antibiotics to take for 4 days, pain medicine, and anti-inflammatory medicine." T.Ryan, Canadian in Malaysia
