The Important Value of Travel Insurance
As our clients well know, we here at Global Guest Suites are devoted to providing you with one of the most unique, finest quality travel experiences in the world, and when it comes to protecting you and your travel investment we do not want to make any compromises.
Why It’s Important. Travel does involve certain inherent risks. There could be unexpected medical expenses or even a costly emergency medical evacuation. Who can you call if such specialized assistance is needed while you travel? In addition, your prepaid travel arrangements can be up to 100% Non–Refundable if you must cancel or interrupt the tour for a reason beyond your control.
A Specially Designed Program. To protect against these risks, Global Guest Suites has negotiated a highly-rated a comprehensive travel insurance package called the Platinum Plan. It includes all the must have coverage for Trip Cancellation/Interruption, Medical Expense, Emergency Evacuation/Assistance, Baggage Loss/Delay and Trip Delays…. all in one policy. We also negotiated preferred premium rates for all Global Guest Suites’ travelers…far less than what most our travelers can purchase elsewhere.
Purchase is Easy. At time of tour invoice, we will include a quotation for this Premier Insurance Plan. Simply include this payment at the same time you make your tour deposit to Global Guest Suites. We will confirm coverage once received.
Urgent: Do not Delay. The Pre-Existing Exclusion is waived if you purchase coverage at time of tour first payment/deposit (or within at least 21 days of the first trip payment). There is also Cancel For Any Reason coverage available with early purchase for a nominal additional fee (Call us for more details).
We at Global Guest Suites realize the important value Travel Insurance provides our travelers and strongly urge all our passengers be protected with this comprehensive program.
Global Guest Suites highly recommends that all travelers, for their protection and peace of mind, insure themselves against Trip Cancellation, Medical and Baggage loss. A brief summary of coverage is provided in below. If you decide to take the travel insurance you will be sent a form to sign, which must be sent back to Global Guest Suites. This will confirm that you are in fact covered.
The cost is $75 per $1000 worth of coverage. For example to cover a trip and or accommodation that’s $2000, the cost would be $140 USD
