Traveling has become such a hot commodity over the years. It almost feels like every single day there is someone from across the world who hops on an airplane to get to new places and experience brand-new cultures. DFS Retreats treats traveling as a great tool for empowerment.
Founded by Divina Michael, DFS Retreats caters to women entrepreneurs by designing and hosting international travel experiences to far-flung destinations like Bali. Michael has banished the idea of the classroom or workshop-based format to help women realize their entrepreneurial potential. She has stated, “As entrepreneurs, we have been taught to hustle and grind. I say we should align and flow. That is what my retreats will teach each guest to do in pursuit of their goals.”
One of the core values of DFS Retreats is promoting the guests’ health and well-being while traveling. With this in mind, DFS Retreats has partnered up with Insurtech Startup Rene in order to maintain the safety of its participants in its Bali 2021 Retreat. Rene is a company that protects travelers from emergencies by providing tailored travel insurance to its clients. The travel insurance package also comes with telemedicine services, wellness programs, and access to healthcare from any part of the world.
Rene boasts a huge technological breakthrough by providing services that are powered by artificial intelligence, intuitively matching travelers with the right kind of insurance that they need with the lowest possible cost and the best coverage imaginable.
Rene also gives users access to hospital and medical facilities through an online directory. They also provide important updates like travel advisories, COVID-19 specific regulations, and emergency services.
During the retreat, Michael infuses adventure, relaxation, discussion, fitness, and other key aspects of self-realization into her travel programs. Each day, travelers participate in guided experiences designed to support their personal — and professional — growth. Michael said that “DFS Retreats is about building a supportive, uplifting community for our fellow female entrepreneurs.” She believes that by helping participants at her retreats ditch fruitless routines in favor of meaningful and purposeful action, women can address both life and business priorities with a growth mindset and creative solutions poised for success.
“After experiencing firsthand what it is like to have an accident abroad and not have proper coverage, I created Rene to ensure that no one would have to go through that experience again, making us the perfect partner for DFS retreats,” said Atilio Spaccarotella, CEO of Rene.
Rene’s coverage reaches $2 million for medical treatment, emergency evacuation, acute onset of pre-existing medical conditions, COVID-19, and other health-related travel emergencies. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about even more risks for traveling. Aside from the usual risk of accidents, food poisoning, losing one’s baggage, theft, and other external risks, the pandemic has brought about a new type of risk in the form of catching the COVID-19 virus.
DFS Retreats and InsureTech Startup Rene allows their clients and guests access to quality healthcare services and coverage. This is a huge boost to their peace of mind and allows them to worry less about the risks and more about their traveling experience. The six lucky entrepreneurs that are part of the DFS Retreats’ 2021 Bali Retreat can rest easy knowing that they are in good hands with Rene.
