As a small, boutique travel company, we must maintain a strict cancellation policy in order to operate sustainably. We understand that you need flexibility. That's why we require all travelers to purchase travel insurance. We highly encourage you to get a "Cancel for Any Reason" policy and confirm with your insurance provider that you'll be able to file a claim in the event that you cancel your CET trip for ANY reason.
In a post-Covid world, it's more important than ever to protect your financial investment in your trip with travel insurance. We highly recommend a "Cancel for Any Reason" travel insurance policy in order to recover as much of your investment as possible should you or CET need to cancel the trip. Note that these types of policies often require you to purchase them within a certain number of days after your first payment towards any part of your trip, so you'd want to take care of it as soon as you book! (Don't worry, we can help! Scroll down to "Get Help with Travel Insurance" below.)
All travelers are required to provide proof of current travel insurance 60 days before the trip begins. Your travel insurance must cover personal injury, death, medical expenses, emergency medical treatment, repatriation, and evacuation expenses at a minimum coverage of $100,000 USD. Trip cancellation insurance is also recommended as it may be required for reimbursement for flights and other non-refundable expenses. You are responsible for understanding the details of your travel insurance policy, ensuring that your policy covers all optional and included activities listed in the trip itinerary, and ensuring that there are no exclusion clauses (e.g., air delays due to mechanical issues) that would limit the coverage that you might reasonably need.
Please be aware some policies and types of coverage require you to purchase insurance within a certain number of days of your first payment towards any part of your trip.
