Life happens. It may be something unexpected while on your vacation or even an emergency while you are on your trip. We strongly encourage you to consider the purchase of travel insurance to cover unexpected events such as loss of income, medical emergencies for you or someone in your immediate family before and during the trip, a death in the family, natural disasters, and other unforeseen events. Every year we have passengers that lose their investment because they “didn’t think it could happen to them” or thought there would be an exception for their circumstances. It can as little as $40 to protect your vacation investment. Prices do vary based on your age and the amount of trip that you are insuring. Please email us for a free quote & brochure on the insurance coverage.
