Our first product is a travel medical insurance made for digital nomads. It's $37 / month. (4 weeks) for worldwide coverage ($30 add-on for US, since US healthcare is much more expensive.) Only works when you’re outside your home-country (although there is 30 days home country coverage every 3 months so you can visit home, 15 for U.S. residents). Covers hospital, doctor, prescription, etc.
I was in need for something simple that was designed for my traveling! Safetywing offers me the security of a globally renowned Insurance company, with the service and product vision of a startup. It was a match made in heaven!Pros:
Simple product and a no brainer for working professionals who travels a lot.Cons:
Time. Their product is perfect, though time will allow for more product features. There is a lot of potential for growth!
I'm having a very hard time and the most complicated process trying to do a claim. Nobody ever has a clarifying answer. They keep sending me in circles between their departments. it's been an exhausting 2.5 months and still no success. I recommend anyone to steer away from it if they want an insurance that actually works. as for myself, will begin to look into other avenues to recover that money as per promised by their policyPros:
Nothing at all.Cons:
I'm having a very hard time and the most complicated process trying to do a claim. It's been over 2 months.
Travel insurance is easy for short periods away from home. The problem and increase of price occurs when you stay longer and in countries at higher risks. SafetyWings has got the things you would need.Pros:
Easy, handy, simple and very low price for long time use , specialy in countries that normaly have hight prices for insurances.Cons:
Cannot see any.

price lesson learntCons:
worst insurance sell other company insurance then loss the control of the process customer service claiming process coverage
I can't wait to see how this company evolves. I hope they continue to create tools to fill these gaps in the (still rather new) nomadic movement.Pros:
Very impressive coverage, particularly for the price point Can pay for any time period No commitment Company is dedicatedCons:
Some of the more niche extreme sports (ex. base jumping) are not included, but I think they are adding more and more as time goes on.
