Although insurance is not required to attend a vacation, we recommend that Travelers consider purchasing Travel/Cancellation Insurance. We especially encourage Travel Insurance for any trip including air, cruise, train or international travel. These particular vacations have very restrictive and expensive financial cancellation penalties. Cancellation insurance can protect your travel investment from unforeseeable events such as sickness, injury, or death of you, an immediate family member, or that of your traveling companion. In these cases your trip payments can be fully refunded, minus the cost of the insurance. This can be great peace of mind and save you hundreds or thousands of dollars. Without Travel Insurance you will be subject to the cancellation penalties indicated below. The insurance also includes limited medical and emergency medical evacuation coverage during your vacation.
The cost of the Travel Insurance varies depending upon which plan you choose, but ranges between 8% and 15% of the total trip cost. To purchase or to receive more detailed information about the Travel and Cancellation coverage please contact Able Trek Tours. For coverage of any pre-existing medical conditions the insurance MUST be purchased within 14 days of your initial trip deposit or payment.
