Why Purchase Travel Protection

Missing a vacation is bad enough. Losing the money you paid for your vacation is even worse. The Linblad Expeditions Travel Protection Plan provides you with coverage for your travel arrangements, your belongings and most importantly you!
 

Enhanced Cancel For Any Reason Penalty Waiver

This additional Enhanced Cancel For Any Reason Penalty Waiver allows You to cancel Your expedition arrangements up to 72 hours before Your scheduled departure for any reason. When a cancelation of this type is made during a penalty period, Your cancelation penalty will be refunded in Lindblad Expeditions Travel Certificates.
 
Any amount payable under this Enhanced Cancel For Any Reason Penalty Waiver will be reduced by the amount of any Trip Cancelation amounts paid or payable under the Cancelation Penalty Waiver of this Plan or under any other travel insurance or travel protection plan providing Trip Cancelation benefits.

If your Trip is Canceled, Your Cancelation Penalties are Waived
 
Unfortunately, many things happen that might cause you to cancel your travel plans such as illness or injury, or worse the death of a family member. The worst part is, without this cancelation penalty waiver, you can lose your travel investment. Lindblad Expeditions Cancelation Waiver Program protects your travel investment if your Trip is canceled for specified reasons such as injury, illness or death of you, a Family Member or a Traveling Companion or a Business Partner.
 
If your Trip is Interrupted, Your Travel Investment is Protected
 
The Travel Protection Plan protects your travel investment if your Trip is interrupted for a covered reason such as injury, illness or death of you, a Family Member, a Traveling Companion or a Business Partner. Provides You with a reimbursement for the unused land or water Travel Arrangements for Your Trip, plus the additional airfare cost to return home up to 150% of the original cost of your Trip, if Your Trip is interrupted for a covered reason.
 
Travel Delayed? You're OK!
 
You’ll be reimbursed up to $150 per day (to a maximum of $750 total) for meals and accommodations if your Trip is delayed for 12 hours or more for a covered reason.
 
Medical Expense and Emergency Assistance Benefits Could Be a Real Lifesaver!
 
If you have a serious illness or injury, the last thing you want to worry about is getting the care you need. The Travel Protection Plan gives you peace of mind with benefits that cover, up to the plan's limits, everything from medical expenses (incurred during your Trip) to special transportation (such as an airambulance) required for medical reasons.
 
Baggage Lost or Damaged? You're Protected!
 
It’s a traveler’s nightmare. You arrive at your destination, but your baggage has disappeared. Or has been stolen or damaged. What do you do?
