I bought an ISIC card and it says it comes with travel insurance and I knew right away it wouldn't be the best insurance but after looking at it, it doesn't seem too bad. I'm wandering if I should just use that or go ahead and get like world nomad insurance. I'd rather just use the ISIC but there is no like card or proof that I have insurance with it.

Here is the insurance page.

Never used it but a few of the travel guides I've read recommend it.

I'd say you'd be okay with just this insurance though depending how long your traveling, where and how healthy you are.

For instance the emergency evacuation is a little low if you were in some remote rain forest. Call up the customer service number....if anything they may give you more coverage if you mention switching to another company.
