Travel Insurance
Available until November 1, 2024


Travel Insurance is highly encouraged for all international travel.  $375 is an estimate and not the final cost.  We will send a travel insurance quote upon receipt of your deposit.  Travel insurance rates are based on age at the time of travel and the price of the trip.  We use third-party insurance as this is the most flexible for coverage and claims.  

Travel insurance is most often between 5-6% of the total trip cost and slightly higher after you reach 60 years of age when the rates average closer to 8%.  

To include pre-existing medical conditions travel insurance policy must be purchased within 21 days of deposit.
