Our Mission

Our mission at Genki is to help you take great care of your health, no matter where in the world you go. We believe that more and more people will have the freedom to travel and live all over the world.

We're here to make health easier and more accessible for nomads, expats, and world travelers. We're not an insurance company. We're your health partner, always there to support you in your journey, wherever it may lead.

Our Story

Our journey began in 2018, when Marc, one of our Co-Founders, grabbed his laptop and hit the road to become a digital nomad.

Along the way, Marc discovered what so many nomads and long-term travelers have experienced: When you leave home to go travel and live in other countries, taking care of your health gets a lot harder.

We started Genki to make it easier.

Our Insurance

In 2021 we launched Genki Explorer – a worldwide travel health insurance subscription. Insurance for people who want the freedom to go anywhere and the flexibility to change plans on a moment's notice, all while being fully covered for any unexpected medical issues.

In 2024 we added Genki Native – long-term international health insurance with complete health cover, including dental and mental health care, excellent cover for pregnancy and childbirth, physiotherapy, alternative medicine, and much more.

Genki is a start-up, but the insurance we offer is backed by some of the oldest, largest, and most trusted health insurance companies in Europe, like Allianz, Barmenia, and DR-Walter. Together they have over two hundred years of health insurance experience.

Our Members

We cover people from any country, traveling in any country.

That means you can find Genki members all over the world — from adventurous, young backpackers exploring Southeast Asia to remote workers who've relocated to Mexico, and even entire families who've hit the road to worldschool their kids.

More than 20,000 nomads and their loved ones trust Genki for worldwide health cover.
