TRAVEL AND MEDICAL INSURANCE
Travel and medical insurance are not included in this package. We strongly recommend that you purchase insurance to cover personal injury, cancellation, or interruption for your experience. You will need to separately purchase any trip interruption insurance through an outside provider. This must be done shortly after making your reservation (some require insurance to be purchased within 15-20 days of initial trip deposit).
We also recommend that you carry insurance to cover the risk of injury while you are at your destination. If you are injured, you will be charged the ambulance expenses associated with your evacuation as well as any expenses related to your medical care. Medical and evacuation insurance will help to cover these costs.
