Travel Insurance

At Grand American Adventures we believe that your safety and enjoyment are the most important parts of your holiday. Therefore, extensive travel insurance is mandatory whenever you travel.

We recommend you take out insurance as soon as your booking is confirmed. You MUST be covered by insurance that includes adequate coverage for baggage, medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become too ill to continue to travel. In addition to this, we strongly recommend that you include coverage for tour cancellation in the event that you must cancel your reservation prior to departure because of serious illness or injury to yourself, a member of your immediate family or traveling companions. (Please see sections 3, 4, 5 and 15 of our Booking Terms).

If you join a Grand American Adventures tour without adequate insurance you MAY NOT be allowed to continue with no right to a refund. It is a mistake to think that it will never happen to you.

The Grand American Adventures policy shown below is specially designed to include all the activities listed in our brochure and on this website. If you have arranged alternative insurance please ensure your own policy covers all the optional activities you may wish to participate in. Please note that travel insurance provided free of charge by credit card companies may not provide cover for adventurous activities, tour cancellation or sufficient medical coverage for North America.

For persons aged 56-69 years at the time of arranging insurance, double the premium is charged. For those 70 - 74 years the premium is triple. For those 75 years and over and over please refer to Campbell Irvine on +44 (0) 207 938 1734 for advice.
