Hi, I'm going to Nepal in October and I'like to know if the Insurance covers for search and rescue in case one gets lost. Thanks a lot
Does WorldNomads provides cover for search and rescue to missing travelers? If yes, What does it include? How long would they search for?
Hi there. Kellie from Worldnomads.com here. A policy available through World Nomads does not provide cover for search and rescue sorry to say. What the policy does cover is emergency medical evacuation using the most suitable transport depending in where you are located eg helicopter. Please be aware that there is a major difference between search and rescue, where you are actaully lost and must be located before being rescued and emergency medical transport which is covered by the policy , where your location is known ( you're not lost) and you become seriously ill or injured and can be transported to the nearest medical centre using a helicopter or ambulance once it is called.
Best wishes and safe travels in Nepal.
