Travel is an investment in happiness, health, enjoyment and discovery. Make sure you protect your investment with travel insurance.
Whether you're traveling on your own or with one of our group tours, you need travel insurance. People get sick, parents get ill, or kids get stuck in summer school and plans are forced to change, which can mean losing thousands of dollars in your travel arrangements if you haven't taken the steps to protect what you've purchased.
Unfortunately, our staff sees the hard reality of what happens when a client does not purchase travel insurance and has to cancel. We don’t want this to happen to you. Please contact our office at 225.654.9210, and we will be happy to provide a quick quote over the phone and walk you through your options, or take a minute to fill out the form below if you feel comfortable booking it on your own. Payment for insurance is processed online and is made with a credit or debit card.

TOUR PAYMENTS, INSURANCE & CANCELLATIONS
FINAL PAYMENTS & CANCELLATIONS: In order to receive a refund, you must cancel before the final payment deadline of a tour If you cancel after the final payment deadline, you must have travel insurance to receive a refund - and the cancellation reason must be a covered reason by the insurance company.
INSURANCE & CANCELLATIONS: Should we as an agency decide to cancel a tour and you have not already cancelled with us, you will receive a full refund and we will request that the insurance company return your insurance premium.
If you cancel your reservation after the final payment deadline but before our agency cancels a tour, you will have to file an insurance claim in order to receive a refund, and you will not be eligible to get your insurance premium back.
If you do not purchase insurance and cancel after the final payment deadline, you will not receive a refund. In the past, we have made many exceptions for clients who have found themselves in this situation, but we are unable to do this going forward. You are strongly encouraged to purchase travel insurance.
Please note that due to the ongoing pandemic and COVID-19 situation, the policy for purchasing Cancel-Anytime insurance has changed and you must purchase at time of deposit. Other policies can still be purchased any time after deposit, however, if you have pre-existing conditions you are concerned about, insurance must be purchased within 14 days of deposit in order to be covered.
As of February 8, 2021, our travel insurance supplier is covering emergency medical care for a client who becomes ill with COVID-19 while on their trip. They are also accommodating claims for trip cancellation and trip interruption if a customer becomes ill with COVID-19 either before or during their trip.
However, please be mindful that most travel insurance suppliers, including the one we use, are not covering "exposure" to COVID-19. If you have been exposed to someone ill with COVID-19, and have to quarantine, resulting in a cancelled trip, travel insurance will not cover losses.
