Travel Insurance

All passengers travelling on an Expat Explore tour are required to have valid travel insurance cover. If you need a visa to travel on your tour, the embassy will not issue your visa unless you have a sufficient travel insurance policy. If your personal belongings are lost or stolen, or you require health care while travelling, you will not be covered by Expat Explore. For a relatively small price, travel insurance provides you with the peace of mind so that you can enjoy your tour without any worries.

Travel insurance should be as much a part of your travel preparation as packing your camera, sunglasses and passport! Incidents happen… from flight and baggage delays to injuries and sickness. Can you afford to get medical treatment in a foreign country? Or what if you miss your flight due to reasons out of your control? Travel insurance gives you (and us) piece of mind, and, for this reason; we make it compulsory for all Expat Explore passengers.

There are different types of travel insurance available and you should look at the options available to you when preparing for your trip. If you have a medical insurer, contact them about your current plan. You might already have coverage for international trips. Also, investigate what travel insurance benefits your credit card includes and see if your credit card offers trip cancellation coverage.
