September 22, 2023 Freelance Opportunities!

Hey 👋 We’re SafetyWing, a company built by nomads for nomads on a mission to build the first country on the internet. We want everyone to have access to basic social benefits regardless of where they live, so we’re breaking down geographical barriers starting with global remote health insurance products.

Traveling abroad? Nomad Insurance is our travel medical insurance that covers you in over 185 countries at any hospital or doctor, public or private. Coverage also includes some travel insurance perks, such as reimbursement for lost checked luggage or travel delays over 12 hours. See more details and sign up to cover your next trip 

If you’re a travel content creator, we invite you to join our Ambassador program. Earn an affiliate fee for promoting Nomad Insurance, and get access to an exclusive online community of creators sharing travel hacks, affiliate marketing tips and collaboration opportunities. Plus, use this link to sign up for an additional $100 when you introduce your first purchase and an additional $500 after five purchases. This is a limited time bonus and terms and conditions apply.
