Trip Protection & Optional Cancel for Any Reason

Please carefully read this information about important insurance coverage for your travel plans.

We encourage you to enroll in the Academic Explorer Adventurer Plan, below. This insurance policy is an individual plan which you may purchase on your own. It is intended to offer some financial protection if you must cancel your trip for a covered reason, if your trip is interrupted or your travel delayed, as well as for lost or delayed baggage while traveling. Also, you can add-on the optional Cancel for Any Reason Coverage to protect your financial investment if you’ve been accepted to a program and you later cancel your participation because you’ve had a change in plans. We recommend you purchase BOTH the Academic Explorer Adventurer Plan and the optional Cancel for Any Reason add-on.

There are several other insurance providers who offer Trip Cancellation and Cancel for Any Reason insurance policies. If the one below does not meet your needs, we encourage you to investigate other policies on the market which may help you. Please email us ( for any clarification.
