Travel Protection Insurance
The Blue Walk requires all participants on our walking vacations to carry Travel Insurance that includes emergency medical coverage while with us. If you already have medical insurance, please verify your policy includes overseas medical emergency coverage, and forward proof of insurance to us. If you don’t have coverage, you can use any company you choose.
We use CSA/Generali. Follow this link to request a quote from the CSA site.
For a quote for emergency medical coverage only (without trip cancellation coverage) enter $0 (zero) in “Total Trip Cost”‘
For a quote for coverage including Trip Cancellation Protection (strongly recommended!) in “Total Trip Cost” enter the total of your prepaid non-refundable expenses (tours, flights, etc.) so everything is covered. A simple way to calculate a full coverage amount is think about how much you would lose if you had to cancel at the last minute.
Full coverage includes trip cancellation for covered reasons, emergency medical and dental, flights, lost or delayed baggage, etc. The quote has all the details. Call CSA/Generali at 800-348-9505 if you have any questions (let them know our Producer Code is #05527620). Their phone support is very responsive and helpful. They can answer any questions and clarify policy coverages.
Again, Emergency Medical is required, Trip Cancellation is not. But too often it’s been our guests without coverage that have had to cancel, and lost everything. Please consider that you are risking the full cost of your trip without it. Feel free to use any company you choose (compare rates, shop around), but we can’t stress enough how strongly we recommend you get full coverage as soon as you make your deposit to protect it.
For basic coverage, in the CSA quote builder enter $0.00 in Total Trip Cost. Depending upon your age, policies begin at $21 (plus a $6 service fee) and include:
- Travel Delay ($150/day) : $1,000.00
- Missed Connection : $500.00
- Baggage and Personal Effects : $1,000.00
- Baggage Delay : $200.00
- Medical or Dental Expense : $50,000.00
- Emergency Assistance : $250,000.00
- Rental Car Damage : $25,000.00
If you’d like Trip Cancellation coverage included, enter the amount of your non-refundable prepaid travel costs for a complete quote.
