Trip Insurance

Why Purchase Travel Insurance?

We heartily recommend purchasing travel insurance for a very simple reason: life is unpredictable. Injuries, illnesses, travel delays or interruptions, natural events, government shutdowns, and an assortment of other rare, but possible, occurrences can prohibit your ability to do the trip after you’ve registered.

We designed our terms and conditions with trip insurance strongly in mind. When you register for a trip, that spot is no longer available and we begin turning away other would-be guests. So if 14 days or less before the trip leaves you’re unable to join, a refund is not offered. With trip insurance, not only is your payment to us covered, but your flights, hotels, and other travel costs are also insured.

Important Notice to Travelers: To obtain full policy benefits, Trip Insurance should be purchased within 20 days of your initial payment or deposit.
