Travel Insurance

Do I Need Travel Insurance?


It's always a good idea to protect your investment (your vacation), no matter how small or large it may be.

Travel insurance can minimize the considerable financial risks of traveling: accidents, illness, missed flights, canceled tours, lost baggage, theft, terrorism, travel-company bankruptcies, emergency evacuation, and getting your body home if you die. Each traveler’s potential loss varies, depending on how much of your trip is prepaid, the refundability of the air ticket you purchased, your state of health, the value of your luggage, where you’re traveling, the financial health of your tour company and airline, and what coverage you already have (through your medical insurance, homeowners or renters insurance, and/or credit card).

We are proud to offer travel insurance as an available add on for any vacation package. If not prompted to add-on travel insurance at checkout, please contact an agent if interested.

Please note: disease outbreaks or pandemics are NOT covered.

Premium Cancel for Any Reason Travel Insurance - Covers everything! All serious reasons for cancellation such as illness, injury, deaths, births, etc, will receive 100% of payments refunded.

Travelers with Disabilities

I have a disability, can I still travel?


In order to fully enjoy your iTravel2Getaway vacation, we recommend that you select a trip that is suitable to your physical capabilities. Tour participants requiring any form of assistance, including travelers with physical disabilities, sight or hearing impairments, are required to notify iTravel2Getaway prior to reservation for review and our agreement. Additionally, the tour participant must be accompanied by an individual responsible for providing those services. Tour managers, guides, drivers or other tour, hotel, ship personnel are not able to provide such assistance. In order to participate in escorted tours, passengers must be able to understand and follow instructions given by the Tour Director at all times, both for the successful operation of the tour as well as for their personal safety. iTravel2Getaway reserves the right to reject participation or remove any individual from a tour if notification was not provided and/or when, in our sole judgment, continued participation would significantly hinder the services to be provided to all guests. Expenses, including cancellation fees and/or costs for alternate travel plans or to return home, will be the sole responsibility of the passenger. Escorted tours are fast-paced, often requiring lengthy walks over uneven terrain. In the interests of group harmony, clients should be able to maintain the pace of the tour. Clients with special needs may be better served independently. iTravel2Getaway can suggest touring options based upon specific requirements.




Can I bring my wheelchair or walker?


In pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (the ADA), iTravel2Getaway seeks to accommodate disabled travelers to the extent possible and consistent with the specific tour itinerary. Nevertheless, you may find that certain tour features may not be accessible to the extent that you require a wheelchair, scooter, or other special equipment to participate. We cannot provide individual assistance to travelers with wheelchairs or other mobility devices. We regret that some itineraries cannot accommodate wheelchairs or motorized scooters. Passengers are required to advise iTravel2Getaway of their accessibility requirements prior to booking in order for iTravel2Getaway to determine if reasonable accommodations are available. iTravel2Getaway will endeavor to accommodate special access needs, but does not guarantee that it will be able to do so in all cases. Given the above, for international trips: hotels, sea and river cruises outside of the United States are not required to comply with ADA requirements and therefore may not have ramps, wide entryways or elevators to accommodate disabled passengers or devices such as wheelchairs, walkers and motorized scooters. Due to physical constraints and space limitations, wheelchairs, walkers and motorized scooters may not be taken aboard motor coaches and river cruises.




Can I bring my service animal with me?


Service animals cannot be accommodated on international escorted vacation. Passengers on USA escorted vacations who require a service dog because of a disability should check with iTravel2Getaway prior to booking a vacation.





Traveler Misconduct

What is your policy on misconduct?


Our trips are designed for well mannered individuals that like to have fun! Though we hardly ever (< .01%) have an incident of a traveler misconduct- it is important to state our rules for it, should it arise. We have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for anyone that exudes any physical or verbal harassment to any staff, participant, tour operator, hotel staff, etc. before or during the trip. Should you do so, your trip will be cancelled with no refund and legal action will be pursued. Misconduct also applies to your behavior whilst on the trip. AGAIN, we want you to have fun, but drink responsibly and treat everyone with respect. This includes everyone on the trip with you, our staff, tour guides, hotel/restuarant employees, etc. Verbal Abuse/Loud/Cursing Erratically - We will give you one warning, and if you continue to behave in such manner, you will not be allowed to partipate in any further group activities whilst on the trip nor ever book a vacation with iTravel2Getaway again. Should you exude physical violence, legal action will be pursed against you while on your vacation. Have you seen locked up abroad? That's not were we would like you to be, so please BEHAVE!
