Things can happen when you're travelling that are out of your control, so insurance comes in handy. Considering the unpredictable nature, remote destinations and conditions encountered on many G Adventures tours it is required to have travel medical insurance, and trip cancellation insurance is highly recommended. If you're going to spend your hard-earned money to enjoy your holiday - why not spend a bit more to safeguard it?
Upon starting your tour, the G Adventures leader or guide will ask everyone to provide a copy of their insurance details to keep on record. Failure to provide this information can, and has, resulted in travellers being unable to continue on tour, so don't leave home without it. Where can I purchase travel insurance?
Our Adventure Specialists can provide quotes and offer you insurance for your travels. Even if you're taking extra travel time that is not on a G Adventures tour or already booked airfare online or with someone else, you can normally add these extra days and extra costs into your G Adventures medical insurance, for all-inclusive coverage.
What insurance is required?
Travel medical insurance is mandatory. With a wide variety of company, credit card and travel policies out there, how do you know if your coverage is sufficient for our style of adventure travel? Our minimum insurance policy coverage for medical emergency evacuation and repatriation is USD$200,000 (or equivalent in other currency). If your pre-existing coverage does not meet these needs, you will be required to purchase travel medical insurance.
Why should I get cancellation insurance?
Adding cancellation insurance to your medical insurance is optional, but always recommended. By having 'all-inclusive' coverage you do not need to worry about emergencies that can happen any time, any where, before or during your travels. Including the cost of your airfare, as well as your tour(s), ensures that you do not have to worry about any unforeseen situations such as having to rush home to a family member or having a tour changed or cancelled because of a natural disaster.
How much does it cost?
Less than you'd expect! Travel medical insurance is based on the number of days of coverage - so how long you will be away. All-inclusive insurance, which adds cancellation to your medical insurance, is based on the dollar value of the tours, airfare, hotel nights and other services being covered. Typical costs, in USD, on a 10-day tour valued at $1000 with airfare coverage at $1000 as well would be:
- Medical insurance only for 10 days = around $50
- All-inclusive insurance (medical + cancellation) for $2000 (tour + airfare) = around $130
