    I live in Korea but I am British. Should my country of residence be Britain or Korea? Sorry it's a stupid question but i'm stupid!

    Hi there, Yael from WorldNomads.com here! In deciding whether to select South Korea of Britain you should choose the country of residence where you have access to permanent medical care and where you'd be repatriated to if necessary. 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. You can review who can buy the insurance within the terms and conditions or full description of cover (policy wording) - each one is different and you can review this here: http://www.worldnomads.com/travel-insurance/prices-and-benefits.aspx In general, if you are a permanent resident or citizen of a country, then you can buy our insurance, even if you are travelling in another country. If you have further questions please feel free to send through an email to our customer service team: http://worldnomads.com/contactus.aspx Happy travels! over 7 years ago

    Suggestions for low-mid price hotels which border the disneyland park?

    Thanks for the tips and hints everyone! I've booked the Marriott (surprisingly cheaper than other hotels directly opposite disneyland) and will either walk over or use the mini train that Rachel mentioned. over 7 years ago

    I'm going to warsaw in a few days for a weekend with mu wife. What can we see worthwile?

    Hi Hugo, the Pawiak Prison Museum is really good. Visiting the old town is a given, Lazienki Park is nice to go for a wander and see the Lazienki Palace. There is an incredible view of Warsaw from up the Palace of Science and Culture. The Warsaw Uprising Museum is also worth seeing. Don't forget to try some proper polish pierogi and a tatanka/skarlotka (same drink, has different names in different bars) which is zubrokwa vodka and apple juice. Have a great trip! almost 8 years ago

    Is their an insurance company that covers TREKKING TO THE HEIGHT OF 5700 Mtr ( Mt Everest Base Camp )

    Hi Abhijeet Yael from WorldNomads.com here! Our WorldNomads travel insurance policies do cover trekking, however there are slight differences in the amount of coverage, depending on your country of residence. Some have altitude restrictions which you might need to keep in mind since you will be trekking to the Everest base camp. AUS/NZL: Can cover trekking/hiking so long as support ropes are not being used and you are not taking part in a professional sporting activity. You must not be exposing yourself to a needless risk and you must be taking reasonable care. We do not have an altitude limit but please also be aware that we do not cover search and rescue. UK: Hiking / trekking without ropes, picks or other specialist climbing equipment) up to 3000m is covered as standard (level 1) with a World Nomads policy. Hiking / trekking on recognised routes (without ropes, picks or other specialist climbing equipment) up to 6000m is covered provided you have paid the appropriate additional premium (level 2) and it is shown on your policy certificate. Mountaineering with ropes, picks or specialist climbing equipment is covered provided you have paid the appropriate additional premium (level 4) and it is shown on your policy certificate. Cover excludes free mountaineering, climbing in remote or inaccessible regions, exploratory expeditions and new routes, high altitude climbing over 6,000 metres. You are not covered for Mountaineering Expeditions, Expeditions to the Arctic or Antarctic. USA: Hiking / climbing is covered by our policy, but only when you are climbing at 15,000 feet or less; and this has been arranged by a recognized company (that is a company that is licensed and employs experienced staff).
