Ep.24 - Travel and Health Insurance for Nomads?

Understanding your travel and health insurance needs can be a bit of a headache, not to mention trying to find a suitable product that fulfils your specific requirements.

In this podcast episode, we discuss:

  1. The difference between Health Insurance and Travel Insurance (it’s not as clear as what the names suggest!) and what such products may or may not include.

  2. Various factors that you should take into consideration when evaluating your own specific requirements.

  3. Some general misconceptions, what may be hidden in the fine print and a few reminders of the implications of your choices.
