How World Nomads Travel Insurance helped when Anton’s trip came to an end in Thailand I fell on my side and heard the sound of dry stick breaking, I realized my leg was broken, then I just lay on the beach… The first phone call I got was from World Nomads and they basically told me, you don’t worry about this Anton, just focus on getting better…and we’ll take care of the rest.

How World Nomads helped

Hospital treatment
Anton required surgery after breaking his leg and wrist in a fall while traveling in Thailand. We called Anton daily to check on his progress and once cover was confirmed, we took care of his medical bills and his hospital admin.

Escorted flight home
After his surgery, Anton couldn’t travel back to Iceland without help, so we sent Luke from our Emergency Assistance Team to Thailand to meet him while in hospital. Luke was also there to help Anton carry his bags and escort him home on the plane to Iceland.

Reimbursement for unused flights
Anton had paid for multiple flights to continue his journey across Asia, so we reimbursed him for the cost of the unused flights when his adventure was unexpectedly cut short.

Traveler’s country of residence: Iceland
Destination: Thailand
Claim paid: €34,010.73 (Euros)
