Travel Insurance


For your convenience and protection, we offer optional travel insurance coverage for our trips. For policy information, please select the type of trip in which you're interested.

Why get travel insurance?

We strongly encourage all our travelers to protect their travel investment by purchasing insurance—even if it's not with Friendly Planet—because we believe it is the safest way to travel and a small price to pay for peace of mind. Even with the most meticulous planning, travel can be full of surprises. Here are just a few unforeseen circumstances:

  • A family emergency comes up the day before you're due to depart.
  • You get sick just before travelling.
  • You booked a domestic connecting flight, but it's delayed, causing you to miss your international flight.
  • A severe storm causes your international flight to be grounded, and now you'll miss part of your tour.
  • Your bags get lost, misrouted or damaged in transit.
  • You get food poisoning or sprain an ankle while on tour.

With our travel insurance policies, you could rest easy knowing that you're covered in these and many other situations.
