Long Term Travel Insurance

We have been traveling around the world for years and learned from experience how important travel insurance can be. I have had some medical problems on the road; malaria in Malawi, a dive accident in Indonesia and when Ryan that was on a long motorcycle trip with me had an infection it ended up costing him thousands of dollars in Vietnam. Insurance is not only important for medical reasons, as bloggers we carry some expensive equipment with us in our backpacks and I have lost my fare share of gear. Recently Alya and I hiked The Fish river Canyon in Namibia, the river wall broke and I ended up swimming with a DSLR camera and lenses in my backpack, if it wasn’t for insurance I probably would have still been posting photos taken with my phone on the blog!

In our opinion a great travel insurance company World Nomads 

Problems we have experienced with insurance companies

  • Does not cover long term trips, they don’t see it as traveling.
  • Can not take out insurance while traveling.
  • Can not extend insurance on the road.

Going surfing, diving, hiking or bungy jumping?
