cancel your holiday because of emergency reasons. The reasons which are
covered include illness, accident, death in the family, illness in the
family, quarantine, being called to jury duty and missing a holiday
because of flights being cancelled due to bad weather. For full details on
this you should read the policy.
insurance is optional but we recommend that you purchase it if you do not
already have insurance. Some travelers have it already as a benefit with
their credit card or their employment. The price depends on the
cost of your trip, your age and the length of your stay outside the
country. Ask for a quote when you book your trip.
EMERGENCY MEDICAL INSURANCE
We ask that every participant on a walking holiday have medical
coverage while away from home. If you do not already have this already as
a benefit of your employment or your credit card please ask us for a
quote. Price depends on your age and the number of days you are out of the
country. If you are Canadian this insurance offers unlimited emergency
medical cover. If you are an American resident we
suggest you purchase medical insurance from a US insurer. We can recommend
several insurance companies.
