Guide outfitters encourage their clients to purchase travel insurance. For a fraction of the cost of the trip, travel insurance will provide you with peace of mind, protection against the unexpected, and security in your investment. While a travel insurance policy can be purchased at any time, purchasing a policy within 20 days of making your initial trip deposit gives you the widest range of policy options.
The Guide Outfitters Association of British Columbia (GOABC) recommends the purchase of travel insurance. We have specifically recommend using Global Rescue or Lifestyle Insurance and Benefits Brokers.
Travelers have trusted Global Rescue’s medical and security travel services since 2004, and now you can secure the value of your entire trip with Signature Travel Insurance. Safety is their top priority, but unforeseen emergencies can occur. A Global Rescue membership will provide you with 24-hour advisory services, field rescue (evacuation from your point of injury/illness to the nearest appropriate medical facility), and also evacuation to your home hospital of choice for continuing care all at no cost to you.
