About Wanderwell

Wanderwell is a travel insurance service provider committed to guiding travelers towards comprehensive, yet cost-effective coverage, giving customers and partners peace of mind in planning trips. Our key customer segments are individuals, families, and groups who are traveling for business or pleasure. Customers find us primarily through our Wanderwell Affiliate Partners - travel retailers, travel planners, insurance agencies, influencers, and more - most of whom are aligned with our values.

The Wanderwell website presents a self-service model that curates your travel insurance search with a seamless user experience that makes purchasing and understanding your travel insurance coverage a breeze. 

  • We offer less than a handful of comprehensive plans from reliable insurance carriers to simplify your search and offer options which appropriately cover you and your trips.
  • Easy access to dedicated customer service and claims assistance and advocacy.

Wanderwell was founded in 2015 and has been a 1% for the Planet Business Member since its inception. Wanderwell is a Registered Benefits Corporation in the State of Oregon, and in 2017 we became a Certified B Corporation. 

We are passionate about promotion and practice of environmental conservation. We pledge to donate 20% or more of annual profits - at minimum 1% of annual sales revenue - to established Environmental Partners of 1% for the Planet, focused on social impact and environmental stewardship, as well as to other nonprofits that promote sustainable, regenerative practices.
