World Nomads Adventure Sports Coverage (Standard vs. Explorer Travel Insurance)

World Nomads Travel Insurance offers great coverage that I’ve depended on for countless adventures around the world. 

The major advantage of World Nomads over other travel insurance, like SafetyWing or Revolut Travel insurance, is their extensive coverage of adventure sports and adventure travel in general.  Unfortunately, comparing the World Nomads Standard Plan vs. the Explorer plan can get a little confusing, as can be deciding whether it is worth the extra cost. 

The main difference between the two plans is which adventure sports are covered under the travel insurance. To make it easier to pick which coverage is best for you I’ve organized a list of the covered sports.  If any of your planned sports falls in the explorer plan, opt for the explorer plan.  If not, save your hard earned cash and stick with the standard plan and the other coverages (trip interruption, emergency medical, lost baggage) will be more than enough


Below you’ll find a list of all adventure sports covered by World Nomad’s Travel Insurance and the policy you’ll need to purchase for that specific coverage
