SafetyWing Affiliate Review; How Bloggers Make Money!

Making money as a blogger, sounds good right? But I know it’s also a confusing world. Especially from the outside looking in. How on earth do bloggers even make money, right? Don’t worry, I wrote a big blog post about exactly that HERE, check it out. Basically, there are 5 or 6 standards way that a travel blog makes money. One of which is affiliate marketing. It’s where the blogger promotes a company/brand and if one of their readers purchases that product, they get a little bit of commission.

For me, I only promote companies that I use, and only do affiliate marketing for maybe 4 companies. The 2 that make me the most money are BlueHost, what people use once they start their blog to host it online. And my SafetyWing affiliate, the digital nomad health insurance I personally use. They’re the best paying travel insurance affiliate for me. So check out my SafetyWing affiliate review below to see how much money it makes me, and how it works:

TLDR? Make some money!

TLDR? SafetyWing is the best health insurance on the market. If you’re a blogger, youtuber, instagrammer or just someone with friends who travel, sign-up to be a SafetyWing Affiliate so you can make money each time someone signs up. Money for you, great insurance for them. Win-win!

How do travel insurance affiliates work?

So obviously I travel quite a bit. And for years I didn’t have any travel insurance, like an idiot. That got me in trouble a few times, from breaking my leg in a motorbike accident in Chiang Mai, or the terrorist attack when I visited Somalia, or something similar when i went to Baghdad.

Anyway, as soon as i could afford the $42 a month to have travel insurance, I signed up PERMANENTLY to SafetyWing. I then started telling all my digital nomad friends about it, and then started recommending to people who traveled on my onestep4ward group tours. It’s an awesome product, I want people to use it and be covered AND each time someone signs up, I get a little bit of money. It took me all of about 30 seconds each time to link to my special SafetyWing link ( rather than SafetyWing’s direct link (

How much have I made as a SafetyWing Affiliate?

The beauty of making money as a blogger is that (if you do it right) it’s made up of lots of different little revenue streams. But they all add up. Like I always tell my students you have to stay hungry and stay humble. Those $100s all add up. Even to millions of dollars. That’s wild when I think about it, to be honest.

So my SafetyWing affiliate last year, for example, made $3000 or so. Not bad at all. Enough to cover almost ALL my flights in 2021. And what did it cost me to make that money? Nothing at all. I wrote one blog post about why I think SafetyWing is the best digital nomad insurance HERE, and other than that I included this link to SafetyWing in a box that is automatically put at the bottom of each blog post (if you scroll to the bottom of this blog post, you’ll see it).

Total work? Maybe 3 or 4 hours. And the money will continue to tick over (hopefully!) forever. That’s the beauty of affiliate marketing. Here’s a screenshot of my SafetyWing affiliate dashboard:

How much do you earn with each SafetyWing signup?

When someone signs up to SafetyWing, they pay monthly. And they can cancel at any time. But generally most people, like me, sign up and pay each month. It’s only $42 and it covers you EVERYWHERE! So you just keep it rolling.

As a SafetyWing affiliate, you get 10% of the value of the consumed purchase, for 1 year. So $4 a month, for a year – about $50 per person, if they sign up for the basic ‘Nomad Insurance’.

SafetyWing also have a ‘remote health’ option both for individuals living overseas, and a team option for people employing people overseas. The individual options is currently paused but the team option is still in play. That’s for people who aren’t traveling, but based in one spot for months/years at a time. It’s true health insurance. That previously earned a Safetywing Affiliate $180 per person if someone signs up for that for a year.

How do YOU become a SafetyWing Affiliate?

It’s super easy. SIGN UP HERE!

This is the easy part. You don’t even need a blog to become a SafetyWing affiliate. Even if you’re just a person who knows a lot of people, you can still sign up, become an affiliate and then when you recommend SafetyWing to people, use your link rather than the standard!
