Emergency Evacuation Insurance (Included Complimentary)
An emergency evacuation protection plan with a maximum benefit of up to $500,000 per paying passenger is included complimentary in the cost of your expedition. The included complimentary protection plan provides coverage only while traveling with Quark Expeditions, between the first and last day of the expedition. Any additional days of travel prior to the expedition and/or after the expedition are not covered by the included emergency evacuation protection plan. The complimentary emergency evacuation plan is paid for and provided by Quark Expeditions.
Medical, Cancellation and Baggage Protection
As we venture to remote regions of the world, and our guests often travel great distances to join our expeditions, we advise all Quark Expeditions travelers to purchase trip cancellation/trip interruption, emergency medical, baggage and baggage delay, and additional emergency evacuation/repatriation of remains benefits.
Why Invest in the Trip Mate Protection Plan?
We remind you that according to our Terms and Conditions of Sale our cancellation policy states that clients who, for any reason, cancel their intended participation in a voyage 120 days or fewer prior to departure forfeit all payments.
