Frequently Asked Questions
Does Nomad-Trip run verification or background checks on potential participants?
Yes! After down payments are received all approved – applicants will have their information submitted for background safety checks.
During the trip, can I move around the city or country by myself or should I stay with the group all the time?
We strongly suggest taking our confirmed optional services during the trip because you will travel with the group of Nomads. This will make it cheaper, easier, friendlier, and safer for the whole group.
We know sometimes everyone needs some time for themselves and there are places you need to visit by yourself; so we just ask you to let the trip coordinator know where are you going to be. All the information between the coordinator/tour leader is confidential between you two but is just needed for your own safety.
So now I apply, and then I get my application approved. What should I do then?
We will send you all the information about the trip including health insurance coverage, flights bookings, and accommodation information so you can confirm that everything is ready to go. We will proceed with the down payment in the next 10 days.
For the Trip starting on April: By February 15th, the down payment must be received by our office. After we confirm the down payment we will send you the international tickets, insurance, and accommodation confirmation in the next 24 hours.
Payments received after February 15th may be charged an extra fee for the Air Tickets price increase during the last months before buying the ticket.

In this specific case, we encourage to attend to your emergency (whatever it may be), solve them, and come back after your emergency is over. If you can’t, we will charge you the payments you made to cover all the cancellation fees, as specified in the Reservation and Service Policies.
How does the shared bathroom work?
Apartments with shared bathrooms are cheaper. This bathroom will be shared with the house owner or any other #Nomad. In this case, communication between you and your roommate is basic so you can share the bathroom and coordinate timings and schedules during the daily use of the shared areas in the apartment.
Do I need Visas to visit any of these countries?
Mostly countries do not need Visas to enter their territory. Depending on your Passport, you can check the Visa Information requirements so you can be ready for your trip.

If you have a valid active drivers license from your home country, yes you can drive. But, be sure to get a car with the insurance needed so you don’t encounter any problem.

Fluent English is not mandatory in the program, but it will help you to meet the rest of the people in the group, and maybe get your English Skills to the next level. The program is mainly in English because is the most common language, but if you meet people who speak your language, you can share more time so you can enjoy your trip.
Can I leave the program in the middle and continue a couple of weeks/months later?
Yes, but this won’t affect the price because you are getting the whole package trip. Be sure to let us know so we have all the information about you just for the safety and logistics of the program.
Is there any holiday break?
The program was made considering the Christmas – Hanukkah – New Year’s Eve Holidays so everyone can go back home to spend some time with their loved ones.
On December the program will be in Mexico, so it is easier to book a flight to any city in the US/Canada to spend the Christmas Break with your beloved ones. Also, we are planning a Nomad-Trip weekend in Cancun for NYE, so maybe you will prefer our plan.
Can I travel for less than 1 year and still participate?
No, we are focusing on professionals that are willing to have a complete experience; so yes, you must travel all 12 months with the whole group for the main services (air tickets, transfers, and accommodation).
