Getting started

Travel insurance is not included in the price of your trip, so to get a quote we would recommend you contact a local provider. Our customers of different nationalities have suggested a few below. There are two types to be aware of:

  • Medical and Emergency Insurance: this is essential and you should not travel without it.
  • Pre Trip Cancellation Insurance: this is relatively inexpensive, and provides financial protection in case of cancellation by you. As it covers the period between you putting down a deposit and starting your trip, it isn't often necessary if you book close to your departure date.
