Device Protection for Traveling Abroad

Worried about accidental damage to your devices while traveling abroad? For many travelers, their phone is their lifeline. You use it as a GPS. You scroll through social media or play games to relax and unwind. It connects you to the internet, helps you feel safe as you explore the unknown, and puts you in touch with friends and family back home.

And, if you’re a digital nomad or traveling for business, not having a working laptop is not an option.

That’s why WorldTrips has partnered with bolt to bring you device protection coverage. This optional travel medical insurance add-on is currently available to travelers purchasing an Atlas Travel plan for trips starting or ending in the U.S.

When you add device protection to your travel medical plan, you’ll get:

  • Coverage for damage to smartphones, tablets, and laptops as you travel abroad
  • Access to bolt's global repair network
  • Access to bolt's 24/7 online claims process
