Travel Insurance is Essential
We will require the name and contact details of your chosen insurance company, plus your policy document number as part of your booking confirmation with us. We may need to call your insurance company on your behalf, in case of unforeseen circumstances.
Do not choose the cheapest option, but ensure you are fully covered for every eventuality; note that standard annual policies may not insure you for all the specifics of this trip.
Details to check before you book your policy :
- Your position as a working volunteer (and not a standard holiday maker).
- Lost/delayed baggage, and loss of property.
- Medical treatment (including existing conditions).
- Travel delays, cancellations, unforeseen circumstances.
- Cover should start before you leave your home country, and last the full duration of the trip.
- Diving – specialised insurance cover is essential.

WorldNomads Insurance Tips
Some travellers are forced to cancel a trip due to illness or unforeseen circumstances. To make a claim in this situation, you have to buy your insurance policy at the same time as you book your trip. Not all insurance policies cover cancellation, so read the small print carefully.
Lost or Stolen Gear
Most travel insurance policies have a per-item value limit – make sure it’s high enough to cover your gear or choose a policy that allows you to increase the limit. Be sure to account for all your dive kit, as well as your gadgets such as phone, tablet and camera.
Check that your cover includes treatment whilst you are away, as well as transport to bring you home. Insurance providers will usually insist on getting you home as soon as you are fit enough to travel.
Look carefully at what your policy covers, and be sure that all your planned adventurous activities are included. You might need to buy an ‘add on’ to your policy, to cover all the activities in your trip.
If an accident is found to be your fault, you want to be covered in case of a claim.
