Purchase Travel Insurance

We strongly suggest the purchase of travel insurance – not only to protect your investment in travel but also to provide medical assistance due to an emergency once on your trip. Please note that Cancel Anytime insurance MUST be purchased on the same day as making your initial deposit. Also, please note that in order to cover PRE-EXISTING conditions insurance must be purchased within 2 weeks of your initial deposit. You are welcome to use any insurance company of your choice, but many of our clients have found the Allianz product to be reliable & efficient. You can check quotes below or CONTACT US for assistance (and to compare with other providers such as Travelex, if interested).

A traveler can purchase their standard Travel Insurance policy any time prior (or even during) a trip if they would like, but would not have access to the pre-departure benefits and anything that occurred prior to the policy effective date would not be covered.
