Group Travel Insurance: Costs Less & Covers More

Planning a group trip has it’s complexities. Arriving at a final itinerary that fits everyone’s budget, tastes and schedule can take some time, effort, and a fair amount of diplomacy. Once a group has committed, and more importantly, invested in confirming travel plans, it is well worth protecting that investment by purchasing group travel insurance.

Why? To start with, tickets and tours are typically non-refundable, especially at the last minute. Now more than ever, travel suppliers are strictly enforcing their cancellation and change policies. The days of producing a doctor’s note and getting a refund are just about long gone. What many people don’t realize is that the medical insurance they may have at home most likely does not provide any coverage for emergencies occurring abroad. An illness or injury can suddenly leave the traveler, and the group, facing a slew of logistical, and financial challenges.
