PREMIUMS: We can provide travel insurance quotations and bind coverage if you so desire or you can purchase the insurance direct from any number of insurance companies over the internet. We are not insurance agents. We will provide you with the terms and conditions provided by the company that we use for coverage, TravelGuard, and their quotations.
The specific details of the coverage and the exclusions can be verified through the insurance company. We will make no recommendation of coverages. It is up to each traveler to select the coverage that is best for them, their circumstances and their budget.
It is your responsibility to select a trip that is appropriate to your health, physical abilities and interests. As important is a positive mental attitude, a willingness to try new and different experiences and a sense of humor. We want each of you to enjoy and learn from each of our tours. We are happy to discuss our offerings with you and answer any
question that you might have.
ENTRY AND EXIT
As of January 2007 all U.S. citizens are required to have a valid U.S. passport for entry by air into the United States. Each other country has its own entry/exit requirements. It is your responsibility
to make sure that you have and carry with you the necessary documentation. Also,
each country has its own exit/departure fees. Those stated by us will be
accurate at the time of discussion, but changes in the fees and shifting currency
values might cause these fees to change. Please be mindful that we have no
control over these changes.
