Hi, everyone!

Welcome to the fourth episode of our how to become a digital nomad series, where I will help you work online and travel the world!

For those of you who are new to our channel, I am Chantal from Growing Up Without Borders! We are a family of five turned digital nomads who have traveled the world since 2013!

Travel Insurance and Safety on the Road

Today, we are discussing TRAVEL INSURANCE and STAYING SAFE on the road. With almost a decade of travel experience under our belt, we’ve realized that you need to be prepared for any situation you’ll face. Whether it’s a lack of safe drinking water or low standards of hygiene, you need to remain in control of your health.

Staying safe actually starts at home, before you leave the country. There are many precautionary measures you can take, but one that we find most important is to bring your own medicine. We learned this the hard way through several emergencies, like when Chloe went septic from a bacterial infection in Ecuador and a few food poisonings along the way!

Jase Medical Travel Kit Helps Us Feel Safe on the Road

These dangerous situations made us look for a simple but effective solution, and eventually, I ran into a company called Jase Medical! Jase Medical is an online medical service that, after a thorough online assessment of your medical history, provides you with a travel kit of 5 different antibiotics. I feel so happy to have found them because they have made our lives so much easier, and I wholeheartedly recommend that you order your Jase medical kit before you book your next international flight!

Safety Wing - The Best Travel Insurance

This leads me to the next very important step you can take to stay protected - buy reliable travel insurance! Unfortunately, as digital nomads, it’s really hard to go back home to buy coverage for your next trip when you are halfway across the world. So, we found a fantastic service called SafetyWing!

Created by digital nomads for digital nomads, SafetyWing allows you to buy insurance from any location in the world. They offer various coverage plans for different ages and styles of travel. They offer a range of policies, including Nomad Insurance, which is designed specifically for digital nomads and remote workers. This policy provides comprehensive coverage for medical expenses, emergency medical evacuation, personal liability, and more.

One of the best features of Nomad Insurance with SafetyWing is that it covers you no matter where you travel. Whether you’re in your home country or traveling abroad, you can rest assured that you’re covered in case of an emergency.

In addition to medical coverage, Nomad Insurance with SafetyWing also provides coverage for personal liability, which is helpful in case you accidentally damage someone else’s property or injure someone. This coverage can help protect you from costly lawsuits and legal fees.

Another great feature of Nomad Insurance with SafetyWing is that it’s flexible and customizable. You can choose the coverage amount that works best for you, and you can add or remove coverage as your needs change. It's also affordable, with monthly premiums starting at just $45.08. This makes it an excellent option for digital nomads and remote workers who want comprehensive coverage without breaking the bank.

Health Starts at Home

Last but not least, you can avoid most major medical issues if you care for your general health! Stay hydrated, sleep well, eat healthy food, avoid sugars, etc. You should also mind where you eat! For example, we always recommend street food only at highly frequented places (fast turnover) or busy restaurants and not buffets!

If you have any additional questions, feel free to leave me a message or book a one-on-one call with me, during which you will get an in-depth consultation addressing your travel questions and concerns.
