World Nomads do not have a ‘World Excluding USA & Canada’ option. It would be easier if they did.
When you apply for a World Nomads policy, enter your main target country(s) and get an initial quote. THEN, go back and add as many other countries as possible … ones that you MAY visit that same year. You usually find that the price remains the same. If not, find out which country is increasing the price and delete it (e.g. the USA and Canada are always a problem). In this way, you will have maximum country coverage.
I find that, if I list the following continents and countries, my quoted price stays the same:
- Carribbean Islands,
- Central America,
- Middle East
- New Zealand,
- South America.
Effectively the, above, is the same as ‘The World excluding USA & Canada’.
