We strongly advise all travelers to secure comprehensive travel insurance for their journey. This insurance should encompass a wide range of potential issues, including but not limited to medical emergencies, assistance services, and specifically cover costs arising from force majeure events such as natural disasters, severe weather, pandemics, and political unrest.
Additionally, the policy should provide robust coverage for trip disruption, trip cancellation, and trip curtailment.
For the most extensive protection, consider opting for a policy that includes Cancellation for Any Reason (CFAR) add-ons.
CFAR coverage offers greater flexibility, allowing you to cancel your trip for reasons not typically covered under standard policies and still receive reimbursement for a significant portion of your trip cost.
12.1 Responsibility for Uninsured Costs
In the event that you do not purchase travel insurance, you will be solely responsible for any medical expenses, evacuation costs, and other costs related to your journey, including those resulting from force majeure events and trip disruptions or cancellations.
Without insurance, unforeseen circumstances could lead to substantial financial burdens.
As such, obtaining adequate travel insurance is crucial to mitigate the risks and potential expenses associated with unexpected travel challenges.
