For the following questions related to travel insurance, we can at least answer regarding the policies from our recommended insurance provider, Travel Insured International

What will happen to the insurance policy I purchased if the trip is cancelled or postponed?

Travel Insured International will simply adjust the policy to new trip dates, or simply offer you a credit for future use.

Will my insurance policy cover me if I fall ill or test positive for Covid?

Certainly. As per TII: “COVID-19 is treated that same as any other sickness for purposes of all coverages that are triggered by a sickness or that can reimburse losses resulting from a sickness.” So, if getting Covid prevents you from traveling, your policy will cover you. If you get Covid while you are traveling, benefits will apply. Etc.

As a travel “community”, the expectation of each traveler is to be punctual for designated meeting times – designated times to meet in the lobby to begin the tour, designated times to meet at the sites after free time to depart the site, and any other established group meeting time. Furthermore, each traveler is responsible to set their own “wake up call” to get ready to start the day. Each traveler has different needs in getting ready and it is the responsibility of each traveler to plan accordingly. If a traveler fails to show up for designated meeting times, the tour reserves the right to leave without the traveler and their meeting up with the group is their personal responsibility and their expense.

If a traveler decides to leave the tour for any reason, aside from a health matter or emergency, they will not be allowed to rejoin the tour at a later destination. Travelers are expected to begin and end the tour together.
