Trip Insurance

The COVID-19 Virus has lead to many changes in travel and trip insurance.  At present, our recommendation is to purchase either the Travel SE Plan or the Travel LX Plan with our trusted insurance provider,  iTravelInsured®.

Both plans include Emergency Medical Evacuations coverage, however, only the Travel LX Plan includes a "Cancel for Any Reason" benefit.

Important: Once you have made your first arrangement for a trip, that date becomes the initial trip deposit date. You must purchase your plan within 20 days of making that initial trip deposit if the coverage is to be in effect.
