Walking the Camino de Santiago is not a high-risk venture but it’s always recommended to have travel insurance that can cover your medical and travel accidents and incidents. We recommend using Safetywings Travel Insurance.
  • Safetywing is affordable travel medical insurance that cover people from all over the world, while outside their home country.
  • Medically Safetywings will cover you if you are in an accident or fall sick while you are outside your home country and need medical assistance.
  • Safetywings is not a primary medical insurance but will provide coverage for unexpected illness or injury, including eligible expenses for hospital, doctor or prescription drugs.
  • Covid-19 is covered the same as any other illness as long as it was not contracted before your coverage start date, and does not fall under any other policy exclusion or limitation.

Travel accidents happen while on the road, Safetywings insurance includes coverage for travel delay, lost checked luggage, emergency response, natural disasters, and personal liability.

  • Safetywings was initially aimed at digital nomads, long-term on the road. It is now available for short-term, long-term, and full-time travelers
  • the insurance can cover trips of any length starting from 5 to 364 days making it suitable for walking any of the Camino routes.

Safetywings insurance does not have to be purchased in advance. It can be taken up and renewed while already traveling. We have traveled in several countries making use of Safetywings insurance.

AGE DISCRIMINATION. Sorry, you guys are fantastic, but I have a real problem when I see discriminatory practices like this. It drops in half if I put in 20 years younger! I'm going to shop around a bit and see if it is like that everywhere. Sad.

Hello Jana, thank you for reading, I am glad you find our site helpful. We did find that health insurance was more expensive with an increase in age. We have used Safetywing ourselves, because we found them good value for money. I hope you find an option that works for you and that you have a fantastic trip. Buen Camino
