Travelers who would like trip pre-tour cancellation/interruption insurance can purchase it directly from RoamRight at a guaranteed rate of $243.16 for the double occupancy or $280 for single occupancy. That would provide you with full reimbursement ($4395 or $4995) should you have to cancel your trip for a covered reason. You can also negotiate a lower rate for lower coverage. Example: You only want to be insured for $2000 of reimbursement (instead of $4395) should you have to cancel for a covered reason. RoamRight also offers CFAR (Cancel For Any Reason) coverage that gives you 75% of your payment back regardless of your cancellation reason. Cost for CFAR insurance would be $405.26 for double occupancy and $464.20 for single occupancy. You are also welcome to shop for the Trip Cancellation/Interruption Insurance with other companies if you so choose. We receive no benefits or commissions from RoamRight, but selected them because of their solid reputation. You can also insure yourself for less than the full value of the tour, those with pre-existing medical conditions may lose some benefits if they don’t insure for full tour cost. Confirmed passengers will be given a toll free number to call after their initial tour payment is received.
