Pssst: If you’re traveling right now, then you NEED to have good travel insurance. If the past two years have taught us anything, it’s that there’s no way to know what the future holds! With the risk of getting sick, quarantining, or travel plans getting messed up, it’s so important that you have travel insurance for every trip. I use and recommend Safety Wing travel insurance. They cover unexpected quarantine, COVID treatment, travel delay, and much more. Check out their prices and more details here.
