TRIP INSURANCE

 

It is highly advisable to purchase trip insurance for any international trip. You will need to apply and purchase your own trip insurance, which is not included or offered by the Club. Obtaining trip insurance is voluntary, entirely up to you.

    

As a guidance, we suggest you visit www.insuremytrip.com and choose a comprehensive plan, that covers trip cancellation, medical, trip delays, evacuation, etc and has 24 hour assist hot line.

    

Keep track of the little footnote that says “secondary” That means that you are expected to have a primary plan and after those benefits are exhausted, your secondary kicks in.   If you have a chronic condition, pay attention to the ”pre-existing” waiver provisions.
