Get covered before you travel
At TrekAmerica we believe that your safety and enjoyment are the most important parts of your holiday.
That's why we recommend you take out insurance as soon as your booking is confirmed.
IMPORTANT: You MUST be covered by insurance that includes:
Adequate coverage for baggage
All medical expenses
Any adventurous activities you plan to take part in
The cost of repatriation should you become too ill to continue to travel
In addition to this, we strongly recommend that you include tour cancellation coverage, in the event that you have to cancel your booking prior to departure because of a serious illness or injury to yourself, a member of your immediate family or travelling companions.
You'll be asked to provide details of your insurance policy, including insurer, policy and phone number on the morning of your trip departure.
If you join a TrekAmerica tour without adequate insurance, you will NOT be allowed to continue with no right to a refund.
We can offer you a comprehensive travel insurance policy which is completely tailored for your TrekAmerica trip and is specially designed to include all the activities listed on our website.
If you do not take our policy, you must ensure that the policy you do take offers an equivalent level of protection and covers you for the activities involved.
Be aware that some travel insurance policies do not include, or restrict, coverage for this type of travel.
There may be cheaper policies available, but this does not mean they offer better value - we strongly advise you check fully what will and won't be covered. Often cheap online policies and travel insurance provided free of charge by credit card companies do not provide enough cover for all adventurous activities, tour cancellation or sufficient medical coverage for North America.

Choose from a Single Trip Policy for the number of days that you need, or an Annual Policy which covers as many trips in a year as you like up to 10 weeks for any single trip!
Some of the benefits of our policy are:
