WHY TRAVEL INSURANCE IS A MUST
You just booked a trip and likely made a very large investment with your deposit. What happens if you can’t make the trip? Or worse, what happens in case of a serious emergency while on your trip? The trip is likely nonrefundable unless replacement guests are found, and while we will make every effort to rebook your space, it is often very difficult to fill last minute vacancies. Further, many destinations such as Kamchatka, Seychelles, and Bolivia for example actually REQUIRE mandatory evacuation coverage for all guests.
Given the strict cancellation and refund policies associated with nearly all-fishing packages, we cannot stress enough the importance of obtaining travel insurance to protect your investment.
Travelers can obtain coverage for:
- Medical issues including pre-existing health problems (related to you, family, business or traveling partners)
- Emergency evacuation
- Lost baggage
- Delay and interruption
- Even “no questions asked” or “for work reasons” coverage
IMPORTANT: *** In order to qualify for maximum available coverage for any pre-existing medical conditions, you must buy your travel insurance policy within fifteen days of making your initial trip deposit! ***
