Travel Protection Plan

 

Academic Expeditions recognizes the importance of travel protection and purchases a Standard Travel Protection Plan on behalf of every participant in all groups that are traveling by air.  The Plan includes pre-trip cancellation, trip interruption, medical and accident coverage, medical evacuation, and baggage loss and delay.

For groups that are traveling exclusively by ground transportation, this Standard Travel Protection Plan is available for purchase.  In addition to the Standard Travel Protection Plan, we offer the additional coverage option CFAR "Cancel For Any Reason" that includes the standard features and may enable participants to cancel their tour for any reason up to 48 hours prior to departure date and receive a 75% refund of the cancellation penalty imposed.  (Note, the CFAR option is not currently available for residents of New York)

The insurance benefits are underwritten by United States Fire Insurance Company, Eatontown, NJ. Non-insurance related services are provided by One Call 24 Hour Assistance Services and Global Xpi and are not underwritten by United States Fire Insurance Company.   Benefits are administered by: Trip Mate, Inc. (in CA & UT, dba Trip Mate Insurance Agency) 9225 Ward Parkway, Suite 200, Kansas City, MO 64114, 1-800-888-7292.
