It is compulsory for all groupies to have travel insurance whilst traveling with Wanderlands Philippines. Travelling is all about adventure and experiencing the unknown, but unfortunately this can mean that some things don’t always go to plan from time to time. Whilst you are in the safe hands of your group leader from the moment you walk through arrivals to the end of the tour, planes can sometimes be delayed, luggage can go missing and accidents can happen. Your group leader will check your documents at the beginning of the tour to ensure you are correctly covered and you can travel with peace of mind. It is important your travel insurance covers you for the following:
- Medical expenses
- Missed flights
- Luggage loss and theft
- All activities included in the tour & anything you plan on doing during your stay in the Philippines - snorkeling, surfing, bungee jumps, sky dives etc.
