Travel Protection


Protection against the unexpected

Travel protection plans are vital to help protect you and your travel investment against the unexpected. These plans include coverage for Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Emergency Medical and Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation, Trip Delay, Baggage Delay and more. All passengers on Polar Latitudes’ voyages must carry a Travel Protection plan that covers personal injury, medical expenses, repatriation expenses, evacuation expenses, and pre-existing medical conditions.

For US passengers, we’re happy to partner with Travelex Insurance Services for your insurance needs. You may view their plans customized for our passengers here. You can quickly price available plans by filling in a few fields at the top of the page. Though we strongly recommend purchasing cancellation insurance, you can price the plans to include all benefits except pre-departure cancellation by entering “$1” as the trip cost. Because of the high cost of evacuation from Antarctica, we recommend you choose Travel Select, which offers a higher level of evacuation coverage.

To contact Travelex by phone, please dial 1-800-228-9792 and reference location number 45-0019.

Please Note: To be eligible for the waiver of pre-existing medical condition exclusion, the protection plan must be purchased within 15 days (Travel Basic) or 21 days (Travel Select) from the time you make your initial trip deposit. However, the plan can be purchased any time prior to departure.
