The only thing better than exploring a new country? Exploring two, three, four, or even more, new countries. If you’re going to be traveling to multiple destinations, you may want to consider protecting yourself with travel insurance.

Sure, more countries mean more opportunities for fun. But they also mean more unfamiliar cultures to encounter, safety issues to research, and transit systems to navigate.

And yes, World Nomads covers multi-destination trips. If you are hopping on a Eurail train that will wend from Paris to Budapest, it’s probably worth giving our customer service agents a call. They’re happy to answer any questions, so you can go back to planning your itinerary.

Four ways Travel Insurance can cover multi-destination trips

Trip cancellation

You spent months planning your globetrotting tour through South America, and then the worst happens. After you pre-paid for your flights, hotels, and tango dancing lessons, your trip gets canceled. It feels like all your advance planning – and advance paying – was for nothing.

Thankfully, you had the foresight to purchase travel insurance. When you’re visiting several destinations, your pre-paid expenses can add up. But, if you buy a policy with World Nomads, your trip cancellation coverage could reimburse you in the event of a globetrotter’s worst nightmare… such as an airline strike on your departure date, or you falling ill the day you were supposed to fly out. (Coverage depends on your Country of Residence and the plan you select, the Standard or the Explorer.)

Travel insurance tip: check your policy for the maximum benefit amount for trip cancellation. You may want the limit to cover 100% of your pre-paid trip costs. You should also scan your policy for the ‘covered reasons’ under trip cancellation. Only the events specified are reimbursable under your plan. 

Passport/ID loss and theft

You’ll need your passport and ID to accomplish the multiple-destination trip you’ve been planning. Every time you cross a border, board a plane, or check into hotels – it’s a must.

If your passport is lost or stolen on your multiple-destination journey, World Nomads is here to help. With a policy, you can reach out to our Emergency Assistance Team, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The team will always be there to assist you with locating your nearest consulate… and getting your paperwork and replacement passport back on track.

Depending on your Country of Residence and the plan you select (Standard or Explorer), you could be covered for the replacement of your passport and for the inconveniences of having your passport stolen such a trip delay. Check your individual policy for exact benefits.

Baggage and personal belongings


Pickpocketing is a global scourge, especially in busy tourist areas such as train stations and airports. With a World Nomads policy, your baggage and personal effects are covered up to the maximum benefit amount… handy when you find yourself in need of more than just the clothes on your back.

Travel insurance tip: when you file a claim, you’ll need to show proof of ownership of your stolen belongings. It can help to take snapshots of the contents of your suitcase before your trip and gather any receipts for valuable items.


Because multi-destination travelers often find that they are hopping aboard more planes, trains and automobiles than a single-destination traveler, their chances of experiencing a baggage delay may be higher. In those instances, having a World Nomads policy packed away means you may have coverage for any incidentals – a change of clothes, for example – depending on your Country of Residence and the plan you select.

Travel insurance tip: our 24/7 Emergency Assistance Team offers a baggage tracking service that can locate your belongings wherever they may be. So, if your suitcase doesn’t arrive on the carousel, give us a call and we can help getting our belongings returned to you.

Medical emergencies

24/7 Emergency Assistance Team

Accidents happen, no matter where you are on the globe. But, if you are heading to multiple countries, you could wind up needing to navigate hospitals and health care systems in different languages… some of which you may not speak. A World Nomads policy can help you rest a little easier, knowing multi-lingual professionals are available around the clock to assist with translations (and finding the nearest quality hospital).

Medical evacuation

If you’ve had a major accident and need emergency evacuation, you’ll be grateful to know that you can get support with your medical bills. But, in the event the worst happens, you will have enough to worry about. Why add how you’ll pay for emergency evacuation to the mix?

When you have a World Nomads policy, you can, metaphorically, at least, pop a chill pill, and can relax until you’re on the mend. Wherever you are in your multi-destination itinerary, you can rest assured that you’ll be in a quality hospital, whether that be across town or back in your home country.

Travel insurance tip: you’ll need permission from us for an evacuation, and reasonable exclusions apply (such as if you break your leg while bike packing while drunk… that’s on you).

This is only a summary of coverage and does not include the full terms and conditions of the policy. You should read your policy wording in full so you understand what is and isn’t covered. That way there won’t be any surprises if you need to use it. If you have any questions, customer service is here to help.
