Travel Protection Plan
Our Travel Protection Plan helps to protect you, your travel investment, and your belongings from unforeseen circumstances that may arise before or during your trip.
PURCHASED ON YOUR BEHALF:
We recognize the importance of travel protection. For this reason, Academic Expeditions now purchases a travel protection plan on behalf of each participant as a standard inclusion on all of our tour packages. The plan is available to citizens of the United States and Canada and includes Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Accident and Sickness Medical Expense, Medical Evacuation, Baggage Loss and Baggage Delay coverage.
In addition to the Travel Protection Plan, we also now include Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) coverage on every trip. CFAR enables participants to cancel their tour for any reason up to 2 days prior to departure and receive reimbursement in the amount of 75% of non-refundable payments or deposits paid to Academic Expeditions, less any refunds provided. Note: CFAR is not currently available for residents of New York.
The insurance benefits are underwritten by United States Fire Insurance Company, Eatontown and NJ.
Non-insurance related services are provided by Generali Global Assistance and Global Xpi and are not underwritten by United States Fire Insurance Company.
The Travel Protection Plan benefits are administered by Trip Mate, Inc. (in CA & UT, dba Trip Mate Insurance Agency) 9225 Ward Parkway, Suite 200, Kansas City, MO 64114, 1-833-297-2255
