We highly recommend you purchase travel insurance. The reason we are so keen on you having trip insurance is because it protects you if you have an unexpected change in travel plans. Here is an example. Let’s assume you are signed up for a tour and hurt your leg a week before the trip. If you have no trip insurance, you will call us on the telephone and we will be very sad to tell you there is no refund – because our costs are mostly fixed and you might have displaced someone who otherwise could have gone on the tour. You might then be unhappy with us, even though you took the risk of not getting travel insurance! If you do have trip insurance, you receive your entire airfare and trip cost from the insurance company and can start planning for your next tour! And trip insurance need not be expensive, costing in the range of $60-200 for most of our trips.
