Yes. It is a requirement that every Insider Journeys small group tour client has comprehensive travel insurance coverage arranged prior to departure and for the duration of their vacation. It is also highly recommended that cruise and private journey clients have appropriate travel insurance coverage.
Having comprehensive travel insurance helps to ensure your safety and financial security should the unexpected happen while you’re in Asia or before you leave.
Comprehensive travel insurance covers instances such as:
Medical expenses and repatriation
Cancellation or delays prior to departure
Luggage, personal items and money
Personal accident cover
