Safetywing Review 2020 – Travel Insurance For Digital Nomads

Since I have been traveling with my two children for the past ~6 months, I have been using SafetyWing as my provider for travel insurance. This is a relatively unknown provider of travel insurance (most digital nomad types go for World Nomads instead, which is much more established), but at least in my experience so far — and in the experience of my friends and many others online — this is the best travel insurer for digital nomads as of 2019 and into 2020. In fact, I feel they are vastly superior to World Nomads and every other travel insurer I’ve researched.

Here’s what makes SafetyWing unique, and in my view, superior:

  1. Much lower prices than other providers. With SafetyWing your cost will be from $1.50 to $2.50 per day depending on what kind of coverage you get (the most expensive coverage covers practically everything you can imagine). That is much cheaper than World Nomads and other providers, as I invite you to see for yourself;
  2. You can purchase SafetyWing insurance while you are traveling, and at any time. There is no need to go back to your home country to buy an insurance package!
  3. Great service. I emailed the SafetyWing representative with some questions about coverage and got a reply within 2 hours with a detailed response. I have not yet had to make a claim, so I cannot comment on their processes there, but from what I have heard from others, it is a simple and fair process;
  4. There is comprehensive coverage – as mentioned above, SafetyWing can cover you for practically everything if you need it to;
  5. SafetyWing covers the vast majority of countries on Earth (it only excludes some outliners like North Korea, Iran etc), so if you’re going for a round-the-world-trip it’ll probably cover you everywhere

In doing my research for this review for SafetyWing, I reached out to a handful of travel bloggers claiming to use SafetyWing, and was able to verify that several prolific bloggers vouch for, and use, SafetyWing. In SafetyWing’s (admittedly short) history, I have not yet heard of any scam complaints or any reports of them not paying out when they should, so based on my own experience and the research I’ve done I certainly feel comfortable recommending it.

If you’re thinking of signing up to SafetyWing, I recommend it. If you’re the OCD-type like myself, though, and you’re not entirely sure about them, it’s fine to call them up or email them to answer all the questions you may have about the service.

The Verdict On SafetyWing

I have no negative words to say on SafetyWing, and can certainly vouch for it. I feel perfectly comfortable giving it a 5-star rating. If you happen to have a bad experience with SafetyWing, though, I would really like to hear from you – please reach out to me (my contact details are below) and we can chat over email. My research indicates SafetyWing to be the best and cheapest travel insurer, but since they are not as popular as others, I would really like to hear from more people about them. If I have any more information in future, I’ll update this post.
