It is mandatory that all of El Camino’s travelers provide proof of current and adequate travel insurance before the trip begins. Beginning in the 2018 season, we will begin requiring proof of insurance policy two months prior to departure. Travel insurance must cover personal injury, medical treatment, repatriation, and evacuation expenses, including helicopter rescue and air ambulance internationally. It is recommended that travel insurance also address personal property and trip cancellation coverage. Trip cancellation insurance may be the only means of receiving reimbursement for flights and other non-refundable expenses should an El Camino trip be cancelled for any reason, whether voluntarily by you or as a result of El Camino’s actions. You are responsible for understanding the specifics of your travel insurance policy, ensuring that your policy covers all optional and included activities listed in the trip itinerary, and ensuring that there are no exclusion clauses (e.g., air delays due to mechanical issues) that would limit the coverage that you might reasonably need. If you have current health insurance coverage, check your insurance policy to see if it provides the coverage described above while traveling outside your country. It is your responsibility to verify your insurance policy details with your insurance provider to ensure El Camino’s requirements are satisfied.
