Frequently Asked Questions

What is travel insurance and why do I need it? What is Travel Nourish?

 

Travel insurance is insurance that is designed to cover the costs and reduce the risks associated with unexpected events during international or domestic travel. To mitigate some of the risks of traveling abroad, the responsibility of unforeseen costs is transferred to an insurance company.  For a one-time premium payment, you are covered for one full year in the event of an accident, lost luggage, and other travel disasters.

Travel Nourish is a branch of Nourish International that sells quality travel insurance to students at a reasonable price. As an organization that has sent hundreds of students abroad for service work with over 10 years of experience, we understand the importance of safety on international trips. We are able to offer affordable premium insurance to students and youth in order to provide peace of mind on coverage so you may further the meaningful work you are doing on international projects.

What is ISIC? What does the ISIC card do?

 

The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is the only internationally accepted, UNESCO endorsed proof of bona fide student status. An ISIC card is your passport to fantastic benefits and services the world over.

Travel Nourish is a licensed reseller of ISIC travel insurance. With this card, you are guaranteed significant benefits such as thousands of perks and discounts across the US, receive international recognition of your full-time student status, fly for less with access to exclusive flight prices with STA Travel, travel more with discounts on train tickets and bus passes, get help on-the-go with a 24-hour Help Line emergency service, and get exclusive offers on hotels and hostels.
