A Letter About Travel Insurance
In accordance with Next Adventure’s Participation Agreement, cancellation fees are in effect from the time you make your deposit. Please be aware that these fees will be imposed even if cancellation results from circumstances beyond your control such as a family member’s illness or an international flight delay.
We therefore strongly recommend you carry a comprehensive travel insurance policy to protect your investment in the land and air cost of your safari and tour. There are also many important benefits while traveling such as medical & evacuation insurance and baggage coverage.
Our Worldwide Trip Protector covers losses you might sustain as a result of any canceling any part of your trip for covered reasons and includes the following features:
- Trip cancellation and interruption coverage
- Emergency evacuation insurance up to $500,000
- Medical coverage for injury or illness while traveling
- Coverage for loss, theft or damage of baggage
- 24-hour assistance
In addition, we can facilitate the claims process by providing a checklist and forms you need based on the type of claim, while assisting you in obtaining the required documents.
We recommend you purchase your policy at the same time as you submit your deposit to Next Adventure so coverage goes into effect right away. Insurance covering the full amount of your tour and applied for within 21 days of making your trip deposit covers pre-existing conditions.
If you have any questions, please call us or Travel Insured International ® at 800 243 3174. You may purchase a policy online by following this link http://www.travelinsured.com. Please check with us in advance if you are a resident of HI, NY and FL where we have to use a slightly different process.
If you plan to insure, do not wait, but do it immediately so coverage goes into effect right away and you can take advantage of the pre-existing conditions waiver.
