Things can happen when you travel that are out of your control and when they do, travel insurance can help enormously. There is no end to the number of stories out there – both good and bad – about how important it is to have the right coverage in place. As is the case with most of our travel industry partners, we require that all travelers on EarthTreks trips have medical coverage in place before leaving.
You may have coverage already in place through your credit card, but you need to establish if it is enough and the right kind of coverage.
In addition to medical coverage, we also strongly recommend trip cancellation and interruption insurance, to protect your travel investment.
EarthTreks is a licensed vendor of TIC Travel Insurance and we would be happy to walk you through all of the options. If you would like a quote, please CONTACT US – we would be pleased to provide you with one.
Even when you’ve planned your trip down to the last detail, the unexpected can happen, so it’s best to be prepared.
Travel insurance can help. Here are some real-life situations involving travellers who were
glad to have the protection and assistance it provides when it counted most.

Provincial medical plans don’t cover the hefty costs of medical care in the United States or other countries. So it’s a good thing Amelia bought travel insurance before her trip to Nevada. Just two days in, she developed fever, muscle pain and fatigue resulting from a case of the flu, which required her to stay at a local hospital for two days.

• Travel insurance: $61 CAD
