Buy Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is highly recommended. We advise clients to buy a policy that includes medical and in case of death insurance. Policie at that level typically include flight delays, trip interruption, luggage loss, ect. When purchasing your trip insurance, you will be covered for pre-existing conditions if you purchase a policy with 7-10 days of your initial trip deposit (varies by provider). You should always include the total cost of your trip to be covered. The policy price is based on location, age and total cost of trip. Our two recommended travel insurance providers are:
