E-1-4-Trip Insurance

Optional Trip Insurance

While we expect "smooth sailing" on all of our Purpose Bound trips, we see on the news everyday how the unexpected can strike at any moment. For this reason, we recommend that you consider trip insurance that protects your investment in your trip and your own personal health. Fortunately, because the risks are actually very small, you will find that trip insurance is a very affordable option.

Broadly speaking, there are two types of travel risks to consider. The first is the risk of trip cancellation and interruptions due to weather, airline issues, your own pre-trip illness, war, and the like. These types of risks are covered by travel insurance. The second is the risk of some medical situation while traveling requiring emergency medical transport services back to the U.S. This type of risk would be covered by travel medical insurance. You can learn more about both of these types of insurance on the U.S. Department of State web site, including additional travel health information found here.

If you wish to purchase trip insurance, popular travel/medical insurance sites with online quotes include SquareMouthTravelex, and InsureMyTrip.com. Others can be found on this Travel Insurance Review web site. These vendors are more than happy to assist you in determining what type of insurance may be best for you.
