Introducing travel insurance on the go by Kiwi

Meet Kiwi Insure :

The NYC-based company (team of ~3) was established in 2017 to offer per-day adventure insurance that covers out-of-pocket medical bills without a deductible. Coverage is provided by International Medical Group ( IMG ).

The startup operates in the space of Life By Spot and Buddy . The latter is a MetLife-backed, Richmond, VA-based team of ~10. It launched its episodic insurance designed for outdoor enthusiasts in AZ back in Nov 2018. But for now, according to a message posted on its site, Buddy isn’t taking any new customers.

“Hi! Big things are happening here at Buddy! We are making exciting changes to our ground-breaking on-demand accident insurance. While we make these changes, we are not taking any new customers. Existing customers are still covered, and our team is here if you need us! We’ll be back online in short order.”
