Travelers can choose to enroll in the Global Travel Protection plan because many insurance companies do not provide adequate coverage for people traveling abroad. Designed specifically with EF travelers in mind, this affordable plan covers all travelers for the official tour portions while groups are traveling with a Tour Director. In the event of an emergency, both you and your child will have 24- hour access to English-speaking emergency service, no matter where your child may be.
Global Travel Protection costs $155 and includes:
Tour Cancellation and Interruption Coverage
A refund of the Program Fee if you need to cancel from or interrupt the tour due to reasons of serious injury or illness requiring hospitalization, financial hardship due to unexpected job loss, jury duty, military call to active duty or severe damage to home.
Illness and Accident Coverage
Coverage of hospital bills, doctors’ fees and medical transportation for illnesses or injury while on tour, as well as travel and accommodation expenses for a family member to be with you while hospitalized in the event of a life-threatening illness.
Baggage and Property Coverage
Coverage for baggage, airline tickets, travel documents and valuable property in cases of theft or delay.
Flight Delay Coverage
Coverage for expenses due to flight delays (lodging, food, and other reasonable expenses) as well as a refund for every full land day missed of your tour due to flight delays or cancellations.
