Travel Protection Inclusions & Optional Upgrades

Academic Expeditions recognizes the importance of travel protection and purchases a standard travel protection plan on behalf of every participant in all groups that are traveling by air. The plan includes pre-trip cancellation, trip interruption, medical and accident coverage, medical evacuation, and baggage loss and delay. We also offer for purchase the additional coverage option – the CFAR “cancel for any reason” plan. This may enable participants to cancel their tour for any reason up to 48 hours prior to departure date and receive a 75% refund of the penalty imposed by our company cancellation terms.

Please note that the CFAR option is not currently available for residents of New York.

For groups that are traveling exclusively by ground transportation, the standard travel protection plan and the additional coverage option – the CFAR “cancel for any reason” plan are available for purchase.

The insurance benefits are underwritten by United States Fire Insurance Company, Eatontown and NJ. Non-insurance related services are provided by One Call 24 Hour Assistance Services and Global Xpi and are not underwritten by United States Fire Insurance Company. Benefits are administered by Trip Mate, Inc. (in CA & UT, dba Trip Mate Insurance Agency) 9225 Ward Parkway, Suite 200, Kansas City, MO 64114, 1-800-888-7292.
