    where is the best place to get a good rate on buying USD in Sydney?

    Thanks for the tips everyone! A word of advice though, I did end up going to one of the "big four" and realised too late that it was actually a Travelex counter inside the bank; the bank itself wasn't arranging the exchanges there. So still got ripped off with the rate. Oh well, the rate is still a great deal better than it was a few years back so I can't complain too much! about 9 years ago

    Why my country is not on your list of countries?

    Hi Jelena, Yael from WorldNomads.com here. Thank you for your feedback on our helpdesk system - we clearly need to update our Help Desk country picker to ensure that it matches the current list of country of residences which we cover. In the meantime, if you have any product specific questions, please feel to contact our customer services team - you can reach them here: https://www.worldnomads.com/contact-us.

    Am I able to make trips back home without affecting my cover?

    Hi Susan, Yael from WorldNomads.com here. Our policies for Australian residents have a benefit included called a Homesick Visit, which means that you can return home once (at your own expense) for any non-claimable reason, and then resume your trip under the same policy period once you are ready to continue your travels. This home visit will not change the overall duration of your policy – as the policy will still expire on your nominated end date, unless you decide to buy more cover to stay overseas for longer. It’s best to have a read of the policy wording carefully to make sure you understand what's covered, what's not covered, and any policy limits or conditions to cover. That way you can decide if the cover is right for you (and all of the activities you’ll be doing in Canada). I suggest that you contact our customer services team if you have any specific questions about what's covered and not covered - you can reach them here: https://www.worldnomads.com/contact-us. They are always happy to help. I hope you have an awesome trip! almost 2 years ago

    Where should i go for 1 month in september in Europe? (Think Turkey, Morocco, Spain)

    You could always try eastern Europe, the baltic coast is beautiful in August and you can get really cheap flights to Tallinn or Riga from London. If you can get over there the Curonian Spit in Lithuania is fantastic. The exchange rate is great too since the Baltic states (Lativa, Estonia and Lithuania) haven't switched to the euro!! almost 10 years ago
