    I am 68 years old can i get a quote or are you agest

    Hi Frank Katrina from WorldNomads.com here. For UK residents, we currently can only offer travel insurance to people who are 60 years old at the time the policy is purchased. This is a requirement from our insurer as our plans are designed and priced for a single age limit. We do understand that there are many World Nomads who are over 60 years, who still travel regularly. We review our travel insurance products regularly and are considering plans for older travellers as we receive many requests for this detail. This can take time to negotiate with our insurers, so in the meantime I do apologise if we are unable to offer cover for older travellers. For residents of other countries, our age limits do vary (current as of November 29, 2011). Please check your quote carefully for details: USA residents: under 67 years old Canadian residents: under 60 years old Australia & New Zealand residents: Under 66 years old UK & Ireland: Under 60 years old All other countries: under 66 years old All travel insurance policies are different, and our plans differ depending on your country of residence. Please do read the terms and conditions and the full description of cover (policy wording) for full details on who can be covered by WorldNomads.com travel insurance. If you have any questions, please do contact our customer services team directly: http://worldnomads.com/contactus.aspx safe travels, over 7 years ago

    Cancelation due to volcanic activity?

    Hi, Katrina from WorldNomads.com here. Here is our advice relating to coverage due to natural disasters, which includes volcanoes: http://journals.worldnomads.com/safetyhub/story/76353/Worldwide/Natural-Disasters-Advice-for-World-Nomads-policy-holders We may not specifically talk about volcanoes in our policy wording, but this doesn't specifically mean there is no cover. Generally, you wont get cover for a natural disaster if you know it's happening or its been well documented in the media. It also depends on your personal circumstances, and the type of travel insurance policy you buy, as not all policies cover cancellation, trip interruption or delay for non-medical reasons, let alone for natural disasters. All of our travel insurance policies are different, and depend on your country of residence, so it's very important to read the policy wording carefully, particularly the parts on "general exclusions" or what we wont cover. Also look carefully at the terms of cover for cancellation, trip interruption or delay, as generally, natural disasters may not covered as a cancellation or trip interruption reason (again, it depends on your country of residence) One of the most important things to consider with any travel insurance policy and natural disasters, is that cover can also depend also on the timing of the natural disaster and your trip. For example: if you knew about the volcano (eg. as it's been erupting for a while and it was in the news or it regularly erupts) and you choose to take a trip to that place or to buy a flight which may be affected by the ash cloud, then it's unlikely you'll be covered for cancellation expenses or disruption of your trip. If you're accidentally caught up in a volcanic eruption and need emergency medical attention, then it's very likely you'll be covered for the overseas medical expenses. Hope that helps to clarify.

    What show is better in Beijing - the opera or acrobatics or are both "must see"

    thanks for all of the tips. Unfortunately I didn't end up with enough time to fit in a show. I will have to go back to China soon - I loved it and know that it will take a few trips to experience it all. over 7 years ago

    I'm living in the Philippines on a tourist visa and have been doing for the past two years. Can anyone recommend a travel insurance company

    Hi - Katrina from WorldNomads.com here. As you're not a permanent resident of The Philippines, you may find it hard to find a local agency or insurer who can cover you. You may or may not have noticed that we have our own travel insurance. We can cover residents from over 140 countries, travelling outside their home country (or over 100 miles from home for USA and Canadian residents) Plus, we give you the flexibility to buy what you need and keep extending it, even if you are away from home . For example: you can buy up to 12 months, then continue to extend this policy indefinitely (and as long as the same plan you bought initially hasn't changed). Do check out our plans and make sure they suite your personal requirements. To get a quote, go to WorldNomads.com or use the link in our header, and you can get a quote. To start the quote, you need to choose your country of residence (assuming that as you're on a tourist visa, you are a permanent resident of another country, not the Philippines). If you've got specific questions about what's covered (and not), do let our customer service team know - http://worldnomads.com/contactus.aspx Safe travels, Katrina over 7 years ago

    country of residence?

    Hi - Katrina from WorldNomads.com here. Your country of permanent residence can be defined as the country you would wish to be repatriated to in the event of a medical emergency and where you would be able to then receive long term medical care, if required. You must also be legally defined as a permanent resident (not temporary) of that country and have a residential address that you can refer to within that country. Please be aware, your policy does not cover expenses incurred within your country of permanent residence. If you are a permanent resident of India, then when you buy a policy with us for a trip from Australia to India, the coverage under the policy is suspended while you are in India. We are unable to cover any claims or expenses you may incur in India. You may choose to buy a policy to cover your travels to/from India or any other country. If you do have access to long term medical care in Australia, and are a permanent resident, then you can buy a policy as an Australian resident for your trip to India. Please be aware, as soon as you return to Australia, your coverage ends. All of our policies differ, so please refer to the policy wording / description of coverage for the full policy terms and conditions. It is very important that you read the fine print on the policy so you know what's covered (and not). If you have further questions about our coverage, please do contact our customer service center directly - http://www.worldnomads.com/contactus.aspx Hope you have a safe trip. Cheers, Katrina over 7 years ago

    Can I rely on Qantas flights to not be cancelled?

    Hi Robert, it's Katrina from WorldNomads.com. Just wanted to clarify Glenys' comment about travel insurance coverage in these circumstances. It really depends on the coverage you buy, but most travel insurers will not cover any additional costs associated with industrial action or strikes. You should make sure you keep in touch with Qantas and accept any refunds, rerouting or compensation they offer (if necessary). Do read your travel insurance policy carefully, to make sure you know what's covered (and not), and don't make assumptions that you will be covered for these events or any additional expenses you may incur. over 7 years ago

    I am looking at the explorer plans but i dont see a deductible choice, is it just $0?

    Hi - Katrina from WorldNomads.com here. The amount of deductable / excess will differ, depending on your country of residence. We show the policy excess/deductable at the bottom of the quote before you make a decision to buy the plan and this is also outlined in the full description of cover. I am making the assumption that you are a USA resident, so that means we have a $250 Deductible on Car Rental Collision Coverage for the Explorer Plan only. For all other policy benefits there is no deductible. We do not offer a choice of deductable (or policy excess) or the opportunity to reduce this at the time of purchase. Please read the full description of coverage to make sure our Explorer Plan is the right cover for your trip and personal circumstances. For USA residents, if you have questions about the coverage, please contact our USA team at Chartis Travel Guard direct at +1 888 381 2449 or Direct (collect): +1 715 295 5452 or email infoUSA@worldnomads.com. For all other residents, you can contact the WorldNomads.com customer service team with policy and coverage questions - http://worldnomads.com/contactus.aspx Please note: all of WorldNomads.com travel insurance plans differ, depending on your country of residence. You can check what's covered for your country of residence - http://www.worldnomads.com/travel-insurance/prices-and-benefits.aspx Safe travels! over 7 years ago
