Individual travel coverage

Travelers can choose to enroll in one of the Global Travel Protection plans, which we offer because many insurance policies do not provide adequate coverage for people traveling abroad. Designed specifically with EF travelers in mind, these affordable plans provide both pre-departure and on-program benefits for circumstances that occur on an individualized basis, including medical expense coverage that may apply on your program, and program cancellation for the stated reasons below.


 
See below for coverage details for both plans.
