Travelers can choose to enroll in the Global Travel Protection Plan, which we offer because many insurance companies do not provide adequate coverage for people traveling abroad. Designed specifically with EF travelers in mind, this affordable plan provides protection for travelers should something unexpected happen before, en route to or during their program.
The deadline to add coverage is 35 days before departure. However, coverage begins as soon as a traveler adds it to their account and pays for it. Travelers can enroll on their personal website or by calling Traveler Support at 877-485-4184.
The Global Travel Protection Plan costs $165 and includes:
Program cancellation and interruption coverage
A refund of the Program Price if a student needs to cancel from or miss part of the program due to reasons of serious injury or illness requiring hospitalization, financial hardship due to unexpected job loss, jury duty, military call to active duty or severe damage to home.
Illness and accident coverage
Coverage of hospital bills, doctors’ fees and medical transportation for illnesses or injury while traveling abroad, as well as travel and accommodation expenses for a family member to be with a student while hospitalized in the event of a life-threatening illness.
Baggage and property coverage
Coverage for baggage, airline tickets, travel documents and valuable property in cases of theft or delay.
Flight delay coverage
Coverage for expenses due to flight delays (lodging, food and other reasonable expenses) as well as limited coverage for every full land day missed of your program due to flight delays or cancellations.
