Ulmon Travel Tips: Dollar Flight Club

Here at Ulmon, we’re all about traveling, whatever your budget! We’re already helping you to save money on tickets and tours via TicketLens, but what’s the use of a cheap ticket to see the sights if you can’t afford to leave your hometown?

We’ve recently discovered Dollar Flight Club, an awesome service which uses technology, historical data, and a team of expert flight finders to find the best flight deals leaving your local airport. All you have to do is sign up, let them know where you’re flying from, and you’ll receive notifications via app or email  whenever there’s a deal that saves you between 50% and 90% of the regular cost of a plane ticket.

For example, this week alone they’ve discovered incredible deals for round-trip flights from US airports to London for $275, to Hong Kong for $347, and to New Zealand for $395.

You can try their one-week Premium Trial for free to see the kind of deals available in your area, then you can either pay $9 monthly or a reduced rate of $40 annually for Premium access. With the average user saving over $500 per flight booked, you only need to find one great deal per year to save over 10x the cost of Premium membership!

Premium members also get access to 4x as many deals as free members, including “mistake fares” and secret deals, plus you’ll be able to filter by your chosen departure airports, get your email or app alerts before free members, and have access to premium partner perks, totally ad-free.

We love Dollar Flight Club because they share our view that everyone should be able to book their dream trips for a price they can afford. They also do the hard work of digging through deals from all possible providers so that you don’t have to.

Why not try Dollar Flight Club today by clicking here and signing up for a free trial. Happy travels!

Introducing SafetyWing!

We’re a company of travel-nuts (and we know our users are too), so we thought we’d introduce you to an easy solution for an annoying problem frequent travelers face: insurance!

Designed with a new generation of digital nomads in mind, SafetyWing is fantastic value for people who spend a lot of their time overseas - either living the dream work/travel lifestyle or taking the trip of a lifetime. From only $37 for 4 weeks you can have peace of mind while seeing the world, and (unlike other policies for travelers) there’s no limit on how often you can extend your policy.

SafetyWing offers a combination of health and travel insurance, so you’re not just covered if you fall and break a leg, but also if your flights are delayed or your checked bags go missing.

You even get coverage for unforseen medical conditions if you go home for a visit - for every 90 days of your policy spent overseas US residents are covered for 15 days at home and residents of other countries are covered for 30 days.

You can choose your policy start-date, and if you’ve been putting off buying insurance then have no fear - you can sign up after you’ve left home and have arrived at your next stop.

SafetyWing’s policies are administered by Tokio Marine, one of the world’s largest insurance companies (they’re celebrating 140 years in business this year), and you’ll also have access to their support line, open 24/7.  

There are a couple of caveats to be mentioned (as with all insurance policies): coverage in the US costs more while you’re there, some conditions and activities aren’t covered, there’s a $250 deductible for medical claims, and SafetyWing’s policies don’t cover those aged 70 and over. But for any digital nomads or globetrotters out there who are looking for a simple solution, why not check out SafetyWing for yourselves?
