ABOUT TRAVEL INSURANCE
Travel insurance is mandatory in order to participate on any of our trips. When selecting a travel insurance policy please bear in mind that all clients must have medical coverage and that we require a minimum coverage of USD 200,000 for repatriation and emergency rescue. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, trip cancellation and loss of luggage.

Credit Card Shortfalls
Credit card may not protect you in cases of travel delay, trip cancellation or emergency medical coverage overseas. These plans tend to have highly limited benefits - always do your research to ensure you're fully protected.
You work hard for the money and time invested in planning your vacation. Unfortunately even the most careful preparation doesn't avoid life's surprises if you need to cancel or interrupt your trip due to a covered reason. Purchasing a protection plan will help make sure you don't walk away empty-handed.
Ensure you're covered to see a doctor for a medical emergency while traveling. Your personal medical healthcare policy may offer limited coverage or none at all, once you travel outside the country of residence. Also, the plan may lower benefits or have deductibles when using an out-of-network doctor. Insurance plans provide First Payer Coverage with no deductible for easy claims handling, less time and hassle to receive reimbursement for eligible losses from us first. Funds may be recovered from your medical or other collectible insurance plans.

Additional benefits include transportation of a visitor of your choice to stay with you or to transport any traveling children back home, should you become hospitalized.
A trip to the beach isn't much fun without a bathing suit.
