SafetyWing offers travel medical insurance at affordable rates, from approximately US$45 for four weeks (or about US$1.5 per day), for travelers under 40.
What is different about their plan is that you can extend it indefinitely, until you reach the maximum of 364 days — after which you can renew the policy. This makes it an interesting choice for long-term travelers and digital nomads.
SafetyWing rolled out their travel medical insurance a few years ago and recently added other health insurance products for those without a fixed residence in one country.
A bonus is that you can kick off your SafetyWing travel medical insurance plan any time, even when already on the road. Besides emergency medical, their policy also covers the travel basics, including trip interruption, personal liability and lost luggage.
While it may be a fairly new kid on the insurance block, founded in 2017, SafetyWing is underwritten by Tokio Marine, one of the biggest underwriters in the world.
