Travel insurance is helpful should you need to cancel your trip due to illness (either yourself, an immediate family member, or a traveling companion) or for emergency medical care, evacuation, or baggage loss.
We recommend that all travelers purchase travel insurance. It is important to purchase insurance before non-refundable cancellation penalties go into effect. You should review the payment and cancellation schedule of your specific trip before you sign up and then evaluate when the insurance should be purchased. The latest that travel insurance can be purchased for a trip is at or before the time of final payment.
You may take advantage of a Travel Protection Plan designed for Wilderness Travel or you can purchase other insurance on your own.
