So, did it work out for us?

Fortunately, we didn’t have to make a claim so far. Otherwise I’m very impressed with the simplicity and speed of the process.

My personal favourite selling points are:

  • I can buy insurance cover from anywhere and at any time, even while already travelling.

  • It is easy and straightforward to get a quote and buy the cover. Like, super easy. Even without my first coffee for the day. I know, it sounds unreal, but I could do it, so you can do it too.

  • It is flexible. I can extend on the go. If our travel plans change suddenly, I can make changes to the insurance cover accordingly, e.g. selecting new countries in which I (we) need to be covered, or adding new activities to the cover.

  • They have tons of articles and travel guides on the website, it’s fun to read even if you’re not travelling.

  • It is just a nice company and I really like their work ethics.
