Travel Insurance

Now that you’ve signed up for your trip, you will want to consider travel insurance. Although we do not require insurance, to protect your investment in the event you need to cancel your tour, trip cancellation and travel insurance is highly recommended. Every year, 5-10% of our clients end up cancelling for a variety of reasons, and many costs are not recoverable. Please see our cancellation policy. Travel insurance is affordable, and a smart addition to your tour.

For US and Canadian residents, we suggest you compare Travel Guard plans and choose among Essential, Preferred or Deluxe coverage.

Buy trip insurance within 15 days of paying your deposit for extra coverages, including the option to buy “cancel for any reason” coverage.

Swiss Care offers plans for travelers from any country.
