WHY TRAVEL INSURANCE IS A MUST

You just booked a trip and likely made a very large investment with your deposit. What happens if you can’t make the trip? Or worse, what happens in case of a serious emergency while on your trip? The trip is likely nonrefundable; it is difficult for fishing lodges to fill last minute vacancies. Many destinations such as Kamchatka, Seychelles, and Bolivia for example actually REQUIRE mandatory evacuation coverage for all guests.

Given the strict refund policies associated with nearly all-fishing packages, we cannot stress enough the importance of obtaining travel insurance to protect your investment.

Travelers can obtain coverage for:

  • Medical issues including pre-existing health problems (related to you, family, business or traveling partners)
  • Emergency evacuation
  • Lost baggage
  • Delay and interruption
  • Even “no questions asked” or “for work reasons” coverage

IMPORTANT: *** In order to qualify for maximum available coverage for pre-existing medical conditions, you must buy your travel insurance policy within fifteen days of making your initial trip deposit! ***

COVERAGE with TRAVEL GUARD

Travel Guard’s Gold Travel Insurance Plan offers medical/cancellation/interruption coverage that is well suited for traveling anglers. Travel Guard also offers evacuation coverage as well — so you can “one stop shop” by obtaining a policy that covers evacuation as well as cancellation/interruption for your convenience.

COVERAGE with GLOBAL RESCUE

Global Rescue now also offers a comparable medical/cancellation/interruption policy similar to Travel Guard! If you are not interested in the fully comprehensive coverage of a cancellation policy, many travelers choose to invest in evacuation coverage with Global Rescue. If you are traveling to someplace super remote, Global Rescue has lightning fast deployment infrastructure and evacuation plans to get you out and safely to a medical facility. You can purchase an annual membership or coverage for your next trip with short term policies of 7, 14, and 30 days.
