Travel Insurance

As with any and all travel, we strongly recommend that you purchase a travel insurance policy in your home country that covers your cost due to cancellations. Though I’ve never had to cancel a tour, you may have to cancel your travel reservations in case of accidents, illness, interruption or anything else that may come up. We are not responsible and do not offer refunds for cancellations due to medical emergencies or any other reason. That’s why we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance to protect yourself.

Travel insurance covers any losses resulting from a cancelled trip such as (but not limited to) airfare, lodging, car rental, equipment rental and fees for attending our Explore With Spike adventure tour.
