Q. Does this plan include medical evacuation back home?
A. If you purchase the optional Emergency Evacuation Upgrade with the base plan, you upgrade your Emergency Evacuation coverage to include transportation to the adequate licensed medical facility of your choice or home for covered evacuations.
Q. Does everyone going on the trip need to purchase the insurance to be covered?
A. Yes. The cost is based on a per person trip cost, therefore each individual is covered separately. However, with the Gold plan, children age 17 and under are covered at no additional cost for each insured adult, but you must list them as a traveler and the child must be related to the primary insured. Only those listed as travelers on the enrollment form will be covered. All travelers listed on this plan must reside at the same address. If any travelers reside at a different address, a separate plan must be purchased. For your plan to include “kids at no additional cost,” the child’s trip cost must be equal to or less than the adult traveler(s) trip cost.
Q. How large of a trip can I cover?
A. With the Gold plan, you can insure trip costs up to $100,000 per person.
Q. How long do my bags need to be delayed before I will be covered for baggage delay?
A. 12 hours or more.
Q. Is there reimbursement for the single supplement if my traveling companion cancels?
A. If a traveling companion cancels and you are held responsible for a single supplement, you will receive coverage for the change in the per person occupancy rate as long as the reason for the cancellation is covered under the terms of the plan.
Q. I am 55 and my husband is 60, can we enroll for coverage under the same plan?
A. Yes. All travelers listed on this plan must reside at the same address. If any travelers reside at a different address, a separate plan must be purchased.
