Travel Insurance

Although we do not require insurance, to protect your investment in the event you need to cancel your tour, trip cancellation and travel insurance is highly recommended. Every year, 5-10% of our clients end up cancelling for a variety of reasons, and many costs are not recoverable. Please see our cancellation policy. Travel insurance is affordable, and a smart addition to your tour.

Travel Guard’s Gold plan has worked well for our tour members for years.
Compare Travel Guard plans and choose among Basic, Silver, Gold or Platinum coverage.
