    Do any travel insurances cover rescheduled flights and missed connections?

    Hi Chris, Katrina from WorldNomads.com here. It's a bit tricky to give you personal advice about which travel insurance plan may help in this situation. What I can do is give you a bit of general advice on what you should look for in a travel insurance plan if you are looking for this type of cover. Be aware, the cover for travel insurance plans does vary, depending on the terms and conditions described in the full description cover (policy wording). For example, with the plans available via WorldNomads.com the cover varies by country of residence and the type of plan you choose. No two plans are the same, and you should never assume you are covered for particular expenses, just because you think that's the way travel insurance should work. Whatever insurance provider you choose, you should read all of the terms, conditions and limits to cover carefully before you decide if the plan is right for you. If you're not sure on what's covered, ask the insurer to clarify before you commit to additional expenses. Things to look for: if a plan does include coverage for travel delay or missed flight connections, the coverage available may depend on a number of factors, including waiting periods, excesses, when you buy the policy, if you knew that there are certain situations which may affect your cover (eg. the airline announcing delays) and if you knew about this before you bought the policy. You may also be limited on cover if you do not leave enough time between flights to make the next flight if you are delayed (usually at least a min. of 3 hours) - whatever you do, check the policy wording carefully for specific conditions. It's also likely that the insurer will require you to claim any compensation from the Air Asia first, and if you refuse this compensation or an alternative flight, this may also affect the coverage under the policy you choose. The insurer will take your personal situation into account, including your travel itinerary (eg. what you have pre-purchased) and adjudicate on cover, based on the terms and conditions of the plan you buy. Finally, get everything in writing and keep travel docs if you do need to claim. about 7 years ago

    How can a temporary resident of Oz, no longer resident in Canada or the UK purchase nomad travel insurance?

    Hi - Katrina from WorldNomads.com here. When you buy travel insurance via WorldNomads.com, you have to choose the country where you have 1. access to permanent, long term medical care; 2. unrestricted right of entry; and 3. where you would want to be repatriated to in case you needed to be sent home for medical treatment The most important thing with travel insurance is that you need to be covered as a resident of the country where you would be repatriated to in case of a medical emergency. This is the country where you are most likely a citizen or where you have medical insurance. Travel insurance is there mainly to help in medical emergencies (accidents & illnesses) while you're travelling, however if it is decided by the insurer's medical team that you would receive the best treatment at home, then the insurer may arrange your repatriation, and then as soon as you arrive back in your home country, your medical insurance or national health cover kicks in and the travel insurance stops. Like Sarah mentioned, please do contact our customer services team direct to talk through your options, as we can then answer this specifically and personally (and we like to keep questions in Ask A Nomad for general travel questions, not specifically for travel insurance) - http://www.worldnomads.com/contactus.aspx about 7 years ago

    Do i need a higher or more specific insurance to work in canada rather than just travel insurance? I am a New Zealander

    Hi - Katrina from WorldNomads.com here. This is quite a complex question as I really depends on a number of factors, including the type of work you'll be doing, whether you have the right to work (ie. a working visa), if you'll have access to insurance benefits through your employer and your personal circumstances. To answer this specifically for you, please get in touch with our team and give us a bit more detail on what you're planning on doing in Canada. Call or email us - we're always happy to help.
