SafetyWing Nomad Insurance

Meet this week’s speaker:

Naman Mehrotra, Head of Product at SafetyWing

Naman is the Head of Product for SafetyWing API, focused on building and scaling benefits to freelancer and HR platforms globally. Before venturing into the startup world, he worked at McKinsey and Google in a variety of roles, including product, consulting, and hardware. As the child of expat parents, Naman spent his childhood between 11 schools in 7 countries across Asia, Africa, and Europe, before moving to the US. This experience taught him firsthand about living in a world where financial systems and healthcare are local while the world becomes increasingly global.

SafetyWing’s mission is to solve this very problem by creating products that transcend borders and provide more equal opportunities, regardless of where one lives. He left New York City a year ago to become nomadic and explore different parts of the world. In his free time, he enjoys water sports, hiking, being outdoors, and playing racket sports.

Digital Nomad Insurance Complete Guide

Travel insurance isn’t the most exciting expense but it’s absolutely necessary. We don’t want to sound too dramatic but for those traveling on a budget, it can literally mean life or death. Medical costs, stolen gadgets and flight cancellations will ruin your trip if you aren’t covered. Think about your specific travel needs by all means – but at least get the basics covered.

Digital Nomad Insurance

Health insurance for Digital Nomads is something that many people overlook – but you don’t want to find yourself without one. Medical costs, emergency flights and cancellations can all hit your bank account hard when you’re travelling. Ultimately, it’s better to spend a little on something you might not need than spend a lot further down the line because you don’t have coverage.


SafetyWing Insurance is an international insurance provider that caters to digital nomads, remote workers, and long-term travelers. They offer affordable insurance plans that provide coverage for medical emergencies, travel-related incidents, and even COVID-19 related medical expenses.

How to Become a Digital Nomad

Although you can’t paint all digital nomads with the same brush, at their core they all are remote workers who utilize modern devices and Wi-Fi to work while they travel. A digital nomad may work with a company, for themselves, or as a freelancer part of a larger collective.
