A Shared Global Community

A Global Force for Benefits for the Future of Living.

Our Mission

We’re providing health and travel protection to everyone around the world by integrating intuitive and connective technologies, comprehensive customer ecosystem combined with our own human experiences. Our aim is to connect people with experiences, eradicate hardship and supporting efforts to empower those vulnerable and exploited by human trafficking.

Like you, we are world citizens, deeply connected to the global community of those who break barriers and go beyond borders. Our founders have lived on all five continents. Our team is made of travelers and nomads, people who often live, work, and play outside of their home country. Our organization is diverse, global and distributed -a fully remote company and we understand those leading and living in this manner.​

We've experienced it first hand. There’s a need for change in how the insurance experience unfolds for those who travel and encounter the unexpected, the unplanned, or the catastrophic. These trials should be met with support and care. Handled with empathy and in a language you understand. Made easy by modern tools. Steeped in a spirit of solidarity and generosity. We’ve come together to bring this transformation about and make it reality so that we may all explore the world with protection beyond insurance, increased wellbeing, and unparalleled peace of mind.

A note from our founder, Juliana Jernigan

Courage scares me a bit, I will admit it. But when our family was faced with death 7 years ago it was courage that filled our hearts and asked us questions that had the words legacy, wholeness and health in them. And by doing that, courage added form and shape to a dream that, we understood right then, was shared not only between my husband and I, but with many others as well.

A dream that was formed along our journey, first as adventurous singles, then as global nomads moving from city to city on a mission to lend a hand and impact the world. 40+ years, working across 5 continents, many countries and 3 children later, what started as a stubborn mission to transform the world resulted in hearts transformed. Many, I’d like to believe. But mostly ours – broken first, then mended together by the strongest glue of all, love itself. In this spirit, we are partnered with Not For Sale, to generously provide funding for their work globally to end human trafficking, and other charitable organizations that do so much good.

Our hearts? They burn for those who are not afraid to cross cultures and make a difference  – equipped and healthy in mind, spirit and body. So we gathered our courage, multicultural friends and traveling stories (and histories) and we asked ourselves the questions: If we could do it all again, how would we do it differently, better? Who would we like to have on our side? The answer? We call it Insured Nomads, an insurtech protector of health and livelihood.

To all our courageous friends who leave behind the familiar to venture out into brave new worlds, sometimes for days, sometimes for years, sometimes forever: Insured Nomads exists to provide peace of mind, protection. This team wants to see you go farther, stronger and in good company.

Boa viagem!

Making an impact in our global community.

We’ll say it again, we are global citizens.

Supporting our own community means helping communities around the globe so that together we can make the world a better place for all.


When you purchase coverage from Insured Nomads, we make a donation to organizations whose impact reaches far and wide. We partner with Not For Sale.


Join us in our mission of generosity and consider making a contribution to broaden their impact.


We are involved in Pledge 1% and we are a signatory of the UN Global Compact, as sustainability starts with a company’s value system and a principles-based approach to doing business. We are committed to integrity and sustainability through the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact.


When you purchase travel insurance, health insurance or INC membership we are contributing towards our commitment to those vulnerable and exploited. People are not for sale, modern day slavery must be stopped.

Not For Sale

Not For Sale is fighting to end the circumstances that lead to exploitation and slavery, which affects more than 45 million people today.

Not For Sale partners with local experts to understand the areas they work in and entrepreneurs and other resources to create projects (education, training, employment) that break the cycle of slavery.

They operate in many countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas.
