Travel Insurance Program


The Guide Outfitters Association of British Columbia strongly recommend protecting the cost of your trip with travel insurance.

Most guide outfitters encourage their clients to purchase travel insurance. For a fraction of the cost of the trip, travel insurance can provide clients with peace of mind, protection against the unexpected, and security in their 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.
