    Unexpected events can occur at any time during a student’s trip. It takes just one small unexpected event to leave you with cancelled plans, lost luggage or medical expenses far from home. The Student Travel Protection Plan is an affordable, broad package of benefits and services that can provide coverage and assistance for such unexpected events.

    Why choose the Student Travel Protection Plan?

    • It's 10 p.m. and the flight that was supposed to take you to your study abroad destination was scheduled to leave six hours ago. Who can assist you with finding a new flight to get you to your hostel in time for orientation?
    • Was it the local fare you just consumed in the little restaurant down street or is it something more serious? Who knows, but suddenly you’ve become seriously ill and need immediate medical attention. Who can recommend a good local physician and even coordinate transportation to the hospital on your behalf?
    • You safely arrived at the airport in your destination country, but now you’re looking at an empty luggage carousel. Your bag is nowhere to be found. Who can help you find it? If it's delayed, who will cover your necessities? If it's stolen, who will reimburse the loss?
    • While packing up to head to the airport after a great semester abroad, you realize that your passport and wallet are nowhere to be found. Where do you turn for an emergency cash wire transfer, and how will you get your passport replaced?
    • While exploring your campus abroad, you trip and hear a cracking noise in your ankle. After a visit to the hospital, the health care providers need payment right away. Who will cover the expense and coordinate payment since many medical insurance plans may not travel with you outside the U.S.?

    The Student Travel Protection Plan, developed by Travel Guard, can provide coverage and assistance for these events and much more. To enroll in the plan, pay the plan cost at any time up until your final trip payment and before departing on your trip.
