Insurance

Insurance plans protect you from the unexpected. Below you will find several insurance resources. We are not experts on travel insurance and therefore ask that you please consult the insurance company with any specific questions. Examples of coverage available for adventure travel are outlined below.

If you choose not to purchase insurance, you assume full responsibility for any expenses incurred in the event of a medical emergency and/or evacuation, as well as for trip cancellation, lost luggage, etc.

 

Medical, Rescue & Evacuation

Check your own medical policy to see what is covered, especially if you are traveling internationally.

If you are in remote areas, please note that emergency rescue & evacuation can be very expensive. We strongly urge you to consider rescue and evacuation insurance if your own policy does not provide the coverage needed. Services available may include, but are not limited to, helicopter evacuation, medical care, etc. Check policy for details.
