Individual Travel Coverage

Travelers can choose to enroll in the Global Travel Protection Plan, which we offer because many insurance companies do not provide adequate coverage for people traveling abroad. Designed specifically with EF travelers in mind, this affordable plan provides protection for travelers should something unexpected happen before, en route to or during the tour.

The deadline to add coverage is 75 days before departure. However, coverage begins as soon as a traveler adds it to their account and pays for it. Travelers can enroll on their personal website or by calling our Traveler Support team at 800-665-5364.

The Global Travel Protection Plan costs $165 and includes:

  • Tour cancellation and interruption coverage

A refund of the Program Price if your child needs to cancel from or miss part of the tour due to reasons of serious injury or illness requiring hospitalization, financial hardship due to unexpected job loss, jury duty, you or your traveling companion are in the military and called to emergency duty for a national disaster other than war, or severe damage to home.

  • Illness and accident coverage

Coverage of hospital bills, doctors’ fees and medical transportation for illnesses or injury while on tour, as well as travel and accommodation expenses for a family member to be with your child while hospitalized in the event of a life-threatening illness.

  • Baggage and property coverage

Coverage for baggage, airline tickets, travel documents and valuable property in cases of theft or delay.

  • Flight delay coverage

Coverage for expenses due to flight delays (lodging, food and other reasonable expenses) as well as limited coverage for every full land day missed of your program due to flight delays or cancellations.
