Travel Insurance
We strongly recommend that you purchase trip insurance before leaving the US. Remember, you may at times be away from roads and medical facilities. Minor injuries could become expensive if you need help getting to a doctor or hospital. Unused accommodations and other costs are contracted far in advance and are not refundable when cancelled at a late date.  Check your own health and home owner's policy to learn what they cover, and then check and compare different travel insurance companies. Here are some E-Mail addresses and phone numbers to get you started. We do not endorse any insurance company over another. Do your home work and read the fine print! Please NOTE: Some insurance companies may have a clause that preexisting medical conditions are excluded unless you purchase your insurance within 7 days of your initial deposit.
