Why you should never travel without travel insurance
What happened to a 19 Year girl from India when she got sick on Everest Base camp?
A 19 year old traveller in Everest Base Camp was diagnosed with an High Altitude Mountain Sickness. The local medical facilities were not able to handle this medical event and the decision was made to transfer the patient to another medical facility in Kathmandu. The patient was transferred by private air ambulance because of the life threatening nature of the condition and was then repatriated back to India.
When things go wrong overseas, WorldNomads.com travel insurance ensures that you receive the best care, even if it means moving you to another country to receive it.

When do you need to buy travel insurance?
It is a good idea to buy travel insurance whenever and wherever you travel. However, there are certain situations when you should definitely have travel insurance coverage in order to recoup your expenses in case of the unexpected:
When you plan to take part in risky activities such as bungee jumping, trekking, climbing, scuba diving, skydiving and so on. If you are in a body of water such as a lake, river or sea for cruises, sailing trips, boating, kayaking, or white-water rafting.
If you are on a pre-scheduled or multiday package tour.
Whenever you visit a foreign country, especially if you plan to visit lots of different places.
Most important of all, you want to be insured for the peace of mind that a travel insurance provides.
