is company is basically a scam.
They hassled me around for nore than 4 months, before making the claim. When i finally filed the claim online i found out how close to impossible it is to make a claim worh them, although many reviews said its easy and fast(this company probably pays out for ots reviews, being either really good or as i have found it, very bad). When they finally "agreed" on accepting my claim, they said the money has been sent to a 3rd party and it is not up to them anymore. They sent me some bullshi paper supposed to be some pr...
Excellent experience with World Nomads
I would like to thank the World Nomads team especially Sam, Marie, Jenna and Dean for their continuous support provided to me during my trip to the Everest Base Camp. I was evacuated and had to undergo medical procedures to deal with my Acute Mountain Sickness/High Altitude Pulmonary Edema. I was very surprised to see administrative formalities getting completed without my intervention. I never felt alone and it was like the entire team was with me during my bad times. I will never forget this experience and will surely recommend World Nomads t...o others who need to explore their adventurous dreams and want to have a hassle free insurance experience. August 14th 2019 Update: A different experience This is my second review for World Nomads. I have been assisted throughout my Nepal journey by World Nomads. This time I would like to that Michelle from the claims team for her support in sorting my helivac claim. The claim took a while to sort but all parties were happy at the end. Again this is not any marketing strategy from the World Nomads but an honest feedback from a client. My experience with them was amazing and will surely recommend World Nomads in future.
Constantly avoiding to pay out on claim
I didn’t have a problem making a claim online and provided all my details. The claim was accepted and money was promised.
Then the delays and problems started. World Nomads kept asking me for a swift bank account number. I said in Australia we do not have swift codes just bsb and account numbers. The WN rep (always the same one, a Bupa reinsurer from Denmark) kept saying our bank returned the money and kept asking for more bank info. We provided alternate bank details (from our bank who has historically accepted payments from overseas). After 2...

Questions & Answers
I notice that all the 4 and 5 star reviews are from 2+ years ago, but recently, all the reviews are 1 star. What's happened to the claims process in that time for this to be so consistent?
