The Best Insurance for Your Hawaii Tree House Vacation

If you are traveling from outside of the U.S., make sure you get travel and health insurance before your trip.

Safety Wing is my go-to and they are cheap and easy to claim with – it auto-renews every month unless you turn it off so you don’t have to think about it on longer trips

Safety Wing also allows you to sign up when you are already traveling, unlike a lot of other travel insurance providers.
