Travel Insurance

Traveling is fun, but you still should be covered!

We strongly recommend that you have trip protection that includes travel medical coverage before setting off on your next adventure.

Most domestic US health insurance plans do not cover international travel claims or provide a global network of contracted doctors and facilities. We want to make sure you are covered in case of an emergency or non-emergency illness or injury while abroad.

What can travel insurance help with?

  • Trip delays, interruptions, and cancellations
  • Medical issues and injuries, or death, while abroad
  • Loss or theft of luggage and other personal belongings
  • Coverage if a tour operator or airline goes out of business
  • …and more

Trip protection coverage protects the investment of your trip. We do not have a required coverage amount, but typically coverage is based on your total non-refundable trip costs (i.e. travel package, flights, tours, and accommodations) that you make, or plan to make, prior to your departure.

Insurance in the time of COVID

COVID is no longer seen as an “extenuating circumstance” and is now a “known event” and therefore an assumed risk that travelers are taking.

Please double-check that whichever travel insurance you have covers COVID-related issues as providers may have modified their policies since the beginning of the pandemic.

COVID-19 Coverage with wanderwell

COVID-19 medical expenses may be covered and treated the same as any other sickness.

COVID-19 coverage provides trip cancellation reimbursement for unused, non-refundable insured trip cost if you are prevented from taking your trip IF you or your traveling companion become sick with COVID-19 before your trip is to start and a doctor states you cannot travel.


Insurance does not have to be expensive, and you may already have some level of coverage. For example, some credit cards and airlines may provide some aspects of trip protection. 

Important! Most coverage through credit cards, airlines, etc. will not include medical benefits. They also may have prerequisites for obtaining coverage, such as requiring you to book the entirety of the trip on a certain credit card. It is your responsibility to check your existing coverage and determine if supplementary protection is needed.
