YOU MUST BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE!
Given the inherent strict refund policies associated with nearly all fishing packages, we cannot stress the importance of obtaining some form of travel insurance to protect your investment.
Travelers can obtain coverage for pre-existing health problems (related to yourself, your family, business partners, or your traveling partners), emergency evacuation, lost baggage, delay; even “no questions asked” or “for work reasons” coverage.
Upon booking a trip with Tailwaters, we will provide you with more detailed information about travel insurance from our sponsored providers, Travel Guard and Global Rescue. Travel Guard's Great Outdoors Travel Insurance Plan is tailor made for traveling anglers and we can also write customized policies ("My Travel Guard") to accommodate your trip’s specific circumstances. We have been very impressed with their services and feel confident they offer the best (and hassle free) coverage in the business.

Note: In order to qualify for maximum available coverage for pre-existing medical conditions, you must buy your travel insurance policy within fifteen days of making your initial trip deposit!

A Word About Lodge/Operator Policy & Cancellations
Depending upon the policies applicable to your destination, odds are you will not qualify for any sort of refund or credit in the event you must cancel your trip… Please understand that most lodges and fishing outfits capitalize their services (payroll, fuel, food, etc.) with your deposited funds. While it is often impossible to fill your reserved space with limited notice, your money is also already reinvested in preparation for hosting your vacation. For this reason, it is often very difficult for any operator to issue a refund.
We will go to bat for you to in an effort to recoup your investment; however we can certainly not make any promises. Invariably, Tailwaters Fly Fishing Company ends up looking like the bad guy if we are unsuccessful in this effort. By owning proper insurance coverage we can avoid any uncomfortable conversations, maintain a healthy relationship, take care of our lodges, and guarantee your hard-earned money is not at risk.
