In most cases, people take travel insurance lightly and most of the time think that they could still go on with their journey without it.

Travel insurance is offered when you book your tickets or vacation package. Oftentimes, travellers overlook the value of travel insurance. They think that it’s just an addition to their travel expenses and that they don’t need it that much. They might be compelled to get one if they’re anticipating an accident to happen along the way.

Whether you’ll be diving in the Galapagos, Red Sea or Rajah Ampat, having a travel insurance when on diving holiday is your safety net against untoward circumstances when you dive such as injuries, medical emergencies and even death. Other applicable incidents may also include delayed or cancelled flights, damage to property.

However, some travel policy holders said that World Nomad Travel offers expensive travel insurance, noting the dramatic rate increase of their 12 months and 18 months policies. Other travel insurance provider gives better insurance coverage for less than that of World Nomad. Other negative feedbacks include the inability of the company to cover property loss and pre-existing health conditions. Even though one can extend the insurance online to cover for extended travels, it will not cover the diagnosed illness in the pre-extended insurance, as one feedback notes.

Feedbacks, whether positive or negative, can help a traveller decide whether to ensure himself/herself during planned trips. Let’s just take these as an advice: count on the positive reviews as helpful guide when travelling and ponder on the negative ones. But if you do consider buying any travel insurance then be meticulous and read the fine prints. Better ask questions than be sorry later. If anything happens during travel, its best to keep proofs of purchase or receipts of items, be it for medical reimbursements or for property loss. As for property loss, securing and attaching police reports for the stolen property will help in expediting insurance claims faster.

Let us not forget that securing and availing of travel insurance provides us peace of mind for any untoward accidents or mishaps during our dive trip or holiday. Let’s all have fun but be safe always! Happy diving! :)

  1. World Nomad Travel Insurance is the recommended insurance company of LonelyPlanet.com, the largest travel guide publisher in the world.

    The LonelyPlanet.com insurance account goes out to tender. World Nomads pays the most for it. End of.

  2. Do not buy this insurance. It is NOT a good product! They do not cover theft of electronic equipment from a motor vehicle. (Section 21.3 b) and does not provide cover of cash. They are also absent in case of medical issues! there are plenty of better product on internet so please stay away from buying the insurance from this company.
