Protecting Your Investment in Educational Travel

written April 20, 2015, by contentadmin


Travel Insurance and Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR)


Sending your child or student on an educational class trip to Washington DC or New York, Chicago, Boston or Montreal and Quebec is a substantial investment.

As these school tours are planned quite a few months ahead if not a year or two ahead certain events are unpredictable. Protecting this investment is now possible with a new travel insurance package offered through Travel Guard.

The coverage offered includes the traditional medical and travel interruption which is a sound protection in itself as even a minor incident could prove to involve high medical costs.

If a flight is delayed or cancel, certain associated costs would also be covered.

Best of all however is the Cancel For Any Reason – CFAR.

It is now possible Cancel For Any Reason up to and including the day of departure. For any reason, medical or other, the passenger may cancel his trip and 75% of the costs of the class trip ( or non refundable deposits) would be refunded.

This peace of mind coverage is only $25 (for trip packages under $1,000).

For example if your child’s student trip is $435 the total cost would be $460 with the CFAR insurance.

If there was a cancellation after the deposit (usually 30%) was paid:

    • $145, then $108,75% is refunded

After the final payment

  • $460, then $345 would be refunded to you

So on your next trip to Washington DC or New York City, Boston, Chicago and Montreal-Quebec, be sure to ask about our CFAR product.
