Hi, I'm Damian Tysdal

You may have found me on social media or my website CoverTrip.com. I send the Safe Travels newsletter each week.


I started the first travel insurance review/blog website in 2006 as TravelInsuranceReview.net. I recently re-branded as CoverTrip.com.


I am a licensed travel insurance agent, and have helped over 100,000 travelers find the best insurance for their trip.

Safe Travels is a CoverTrip publication

CoverTrip.com is a travel insurance information website, and also a licensed travel insurance agency. We provide top picks for trip insurance plans. We also have a comparison tool that lets you compare all plans from all companies at the same time.
