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.
You will need an insurance policy that includes Emergency Repatriation Cover for a minimum of US$100,000, however some specialist departures will require cover up to US$200,000
