Travel Insurance with Far Horizons
Protecting Your Peace of Mind
No adventure is without risk or uncertainty. Managing travel surprises well can mean the difference between a memorable experience and one you might want to forget. With decades of experience in the travel industry and ample research on the leading risk-management options for our valued clients, Far Horizons is now partnering with Travel Insured International to offer you what we feel are the best insurance plans to help protect your trip investment.
Optional Travel Protection Plans
We strongly recommend that you consider purchasing travel insurance with trip cancelation. Should illness or an unforeseen event force you to cancel your travel plans after your final payment deadline (120 days from departure) or during your trip, it would be doubly unfortunate to incur a significant financial loss.

Far Horizons offers customized protection plans through our trusted partner – Travel Insured International (a Crum & Forster Company) – with the following benefits:
- Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption for covered reasons
- Trip Delay
- Baggage Loss and Baggage Delay
- Emergency Medical Expenses and Emergency Medical Evacuation
- 24-Hour Accidental Death & Dismemberment
- 24-Hour Travel Assistance & Concierge Services
- Option to upgrade to ‘Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR)’
To waive the Pre-Existing Medical Condition Exclusion or to upgrade to CFAR coverage, the plan must be purchased within 21 days of the initial trip deposit, full trip cost must be insured, and traveler is medically fit at time of plan purchase. Otherwise, coverage may be purchased at any time prior to departure.

‘Cancel for Any Reason’ and COVID Considerations
Far Horizons understands the increased uncertainty surrounding international travel under the global pandemic. COVID is treated like any other medical illness under the plans offered by Far Horizons, and there are options to include quarantine costs in case COVID is acquired in transit, on tour, of if required by foreign government regulations.
With that said, for an even greater peace of mind, you may want to consider upgrading to a ‘Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR)’ protection plan. Under this type of insurance, if you cancel your trip due to a non-covered reason you will be reimbursed for 75% of the supplier cancellation penalties. Covered reasons are reimbursed at 100%.
Please note that any kind of testing or quarantine done on a precautionary basis (i.e. not directly related to a positive diagnosis and active medical treatment) is not currently covered under any travel insurance plan. This includes COVID testing for compliance with airline and foreign government regulations.
