Travel Insurance:

We urge you to purchase cancellation insurance & supplemental medical coverage (which covers Covid19 & pre-existing conditions). This is a smart way to safeguard against life’s surprises.

Please note: to receive maximum coverage, it is suggested to purchase within 21 days of your first payment.

We have made arrangements with Travel Insurance Center, a division of SMS (Senior Market Sales); members of UStiA (United States Travel Insurance Association). Worldwide travel insurance brokers headquartered in Omaha Nebraska with over 35 years experience. Coverage to all destinations.

Please note:

  • Unsure of your final costs? Not a problem. Insure now the amount you have paid for – and then after any future payments, policy can be amended.
  • Trip costs are all pre-paid expenses (e.g. airfare + land costs, etc.), no matter who the vendors are.
  • Travel dates are for the entire period away from home. Travel dates can also be revised up until departure.
  • Medical coverage is included in a comprehensive policy and covers unexpected medical expenses including those related to Coronavirus/Covid19.
  • After purchase, a “consulate letter” will be issued. This one page “consulate letter” summarizes the coverage & clearly states that Coronavirus/Covid19 medical expenses are covered.
  • It is in your interest to purchase a policy within 21 days of your first payment thus receiving maximum coverage (e.g. F.A.R., waiver for pre-existing conditions, bankruptcy insurance, suppler default, etc.)
