Enhanced Travel Safety Alerts Delivered Through Complimentary INC Membership Travel App

Helping you traveling safer and smarter is our mission at Insured Nomads. That’s why we are at the epicenter of the revolution of insurance for the evolution of travel designing travel insurance plans for the modern global citizen.

We are continuously improving and perfecting our benefits to ensure we are accomplishing this mission. This not only includes insured benefits, but also extends to our exclusive INC membership app, which we provide at no additional cost with the purchase of our travel or global health insurance. INC provides complimentary, non-insured benefits and travel tools, such as:

  • lounge access for flight delay,
  • mental health counselling,
  • a secure VPN,
  • geo-specific travel alerts,
  • risk intelligence based on where you are and where you are headed,
  • and much more.

Geo-location intelligence is provided three ways once the INC app is downloaded to your phone, and that’s through travel alerts, risk assessments, and risk levels.

Travel Alerts

Travel alerts are provided automatically, popping up on your phone to inform you in real time as they arise. They include airport travel delays, security risk events near you such as protests, weather events, and more. You can also view all current risks associated with your country, regardless of your current location.  Here’s an example of what that looks like for the United States:

Risk Assessments

Risk assessments are accessible inside the app and include a summary of a country’s overall risk with recent and upcoming risk developments.  Recently, we’ve condensed the number of risk assessment categories we were providing from 10 to 7 for more succinct communications. These categories include:

  • Armed Conflict 
  • Civil Unrest
  • Crime 
  • Health 
  • Kidnap and Ransom 
  • Militancy 
  • Political

Risk Levels

Risk levels are also available to view inside the INC app and indicate the likelihood of a threat to have an actual or potential impact on your travel, the safety of people, or operations. There are five levels:

  • Negligible: the likelihood of a threat is low, with minimal security risks. 
  • Low: the likelihood of a threat is limited. No substantial risk of physical harm, likely travel/operational disruptions 
  • Medium: the likelihood of a threat is presumed. Some risk of physical harm, likely additional travel/operational disruptions; maintain heightened vigilance. 
  • High: the likelihood of a threat is probable. Considerable potential of physical harm, likely additional travel/operational disruptions; avoid non-essential travel to the area. 
  • Critical: the likelihood of being affected by a threat is severe. Professional support is required. Virtually certain potential of physical harm, likely additional travel/operational disruptions; avoid all travel to the area.

The overall risk level is based on the combined levels of different kinds of risks (crime, health, civil unrest, armed conflict, political, etc.) adjusted to the local context to reflect how the risks impact the operating environment in the country. This country information consists of the following: 


  • Currency and the use of Money  national currency and use of money and cards
