Travel insurance for your trip to the galapagos

Travel insurance for your trip to the Galapagos

If you’re planning a trip to the Galapagos Islands, I strongly recommend you purchase travel insurance and travel cancellation insurance.

Believe it or not, accidents on the Galapagos Islands are quite common. Unfortunately there have even been a few casualties on some of the hikes. This is extremely rare, but has happened!

 

TRAVEL SAFE IN THE GALAPAGOS:

 

Recently, the Ecuadorian government tried to impose a law requiring tourists to purchase travel insurance before traveling to Ecuador. However, due to politics and other complications, this law was never enacted.

Since I began helping travelers book daily tours, I’ve also tried to help them have a safe trip. A few situations where you won’t regret having purchased travel insurance include: flight cancellation, getting ill at your destination because of food poisoning or an accident while hiking. Considering the fact that a trip to Galapagos can be quite expensive, you should ensure you’re covered / insured.
