Trip Insurance

Why Purchase Travel Insurance?

We heartily recommend purchasing travel insurance for a very simple reason: life is unpredictable. Injuries, illnesses, travel delays, family emergencies, natural events, and an assortment of other occurrences can prohibit your ability to travel. Traveling with Wildland Trekking is an active vacation and even an injured toe is enough to prevent your trip from ever happening.

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. Therefore, if you discover 30 days or less before your trip leaves, that 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 can also be insured.

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