Travel Insurance is just plain smart. We urge you to purchase cancellation insurance & supplemental medical coverage (which covers pre-existing conditions). This is a great way to safeguard against life’s surprises.
Please note that most insurance policies require purchase within 21 days of your date of registration for the trip.
We have chosen to partner with Faith Ventures Travel Insurance for all of our travel related insurance needs.

Why purchase travel insurance?
Encountering the unexpected is often a part of travel; ranging from the inconvenient to a truly serious emergency. A comprehensive policy coupled with 24-hour emergency assistance services helps you enjoy a worry-free trip.
Consider these reasons to purchase a plan before departing, for a true sense of security on your journey.
Peace of Mind
Whether you lose your job, a hurricane blows through your destination, or your travel supplier declares bankruptcy, a comprehensive plan benefits help get you back on track and find the peace of mind your trip deserves.
You work hard for the money and time invested in planning your vacation. All travel suppliers, whether they are tour operators, hotels, travel agencies, cruise lines or airlines, have cancellation penalties. Unfortunately even the most careful preparation doesn’t avoid life’s surprises if you need to cancel or interrupt your trip. Purchasing a comprehensive plan will help make sure you don’t walk away empty-handed.
Credit Card Shortfalls
Chances are your credit card may not protect you in cases of travel delay, trip cancellation or emergency medical coverage overseas. These plans tend to have highly limited benefits – always do your research to ensure you’re fully protected.
Ensure you’re covered if you see a doctor for a medical emergency while traveling. Your personal medical healthcare policy may offer limited coverage or none at all, once you travel outside the United States. Also, the plan may lower benefits or have deductibles when using an out-of-network doctor. Medicare supplement benefits also need to be reviewed to determine their exact benefits or lack of benefits when traveling. A proper comprehensive policy will reimburse you for medical expenses from any doctor around the world when seen for a covered medical emergency – without deductibles or co-pay; and cover pre-existing medical conditions.
Your health and safety is a concern that you should be addressed in advance. If an emergency medical evacuation becomes necessary, a proper comprehensive policy will transport you to an adequate facility to receive treatment. Additional benefits include transportation of a visitor of your choice to stay with you or to transport any traveling children back home, should you become hospitalized.
A trip to the beach isn’t much fun without a bathing suit. A policy should not only refund you for items lost, stolen, or damaged, but reimbursing you for necessary items you need to buy and continue having fun on your trip until your baggage is returned.
Travel Assistance & Concierge Services
Don’t overlook this valuable component. Available 24/7, prior to departing for assistance or advice on planning your trip – from booking concert tickets to making dinner reservations or a tee time for golf. While traveling, one call gives you access to a variety of travel services such as medical emergency assistance and lost baggage retrieval.
