Travel Protection

At African Safari Company, we know how important your next big adventure is and how important it is to protect it. Let us help you to protect your travel investment against cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances and more. We work closely with our partner, Travel Insured International, to make sure you are fully protected.

It is not too early to think about travel protection.

Every year we hear from clients who must cancel their safari due to unforeseen circumstances. Though we are bound to the 25% non-refundable fees mandated by camps and lodges, we work hard to keep cancellation fees as low as possible. However, we do incur significant costs that we must pass on. If you are forced to interrupt your trip after it has begun, the fees will usually exceed your total trip cost. Travel protection may help you to protect your travel investment against cancellation.  It also provides you an array of coverages during your trip such as emergency medical care, medical evacuation, travel delays, lost or stolen luggage and more-

To qualify for waiver of the plan’s exclusion for pre-existing conditions:

  • You must purchase your plan within 21 days of the date that your initial trip payment or deposit is received.
  • You must purchase coverage for all trip costs that are subject to penalties or restrictions
  • You must also insure within 21 days of a payment or deposit for the cost of any subsequent travel arrangements added to your trip.
  • You must not be disabled from travel at the time your plan is purchased.
  • See your policy details for more important terms and conditions.

What about timing?

Don’t worry if you have not purchased your air tickets yet. You can add the cost of your tickets later by calling Travel Insured directly, or we are happy to assist as well. 

If you prefer, you may buy your insurance in stages, as your financial liability increases. Just be certain that you increase your coverage within 21 days of each payment and that you ultimately insure for the full amount of your non-refundable trip costs if you wish to be covered for pre-existing conditions.

We look forward to helping you plan your safari adventure and we sincerely hope that you never have to use this protection!
