Trip Insurance & Transportation

Life is anything but predictable.

 

For this reason alone - we strongly encourage you and anyone taking an excursion to look into trip insurance. Injury, illness, family emergencies, natural events, travel delays or your favorite team making it to the finals could all contribute to your trip not happening. 

Travel SE protection products can aid you in: trip cancellation, trip interruption, medical and emergency evacuation. Common claims include: injury prior to trip, travel delay, hospitalization or death of family member.

Travel LX includes all of the above benefits with the added perk of canceling for any reason if you purchase your policy within 20 days of initial trip payment. If you have a history of not being able to get away from work or if your favorite team makes it to the finals - not available in New York. 

If your trip does not include transportation, it also won't cover the park entrance fee ($35). You are able to drive your personal vehicle into the park and meet at the starting point, Maswik Lodge in most cases, your guides will confirm the starting location based on where the excursion will take place. 

Below we provide choices for insurance and transportation needs.
