We strongly recommend that all guests consider purchasing trip insurance. For our International Trips, trip insurance is required due to the complexities of international travel and other potential travel related issues.
Purchasing trip insurance is a wise decision when traveling with Backcountry Journeys. Simple injuries, illnesses (like Covid), flight delays and cancellations, and family emergencies can quickly derail your plans for a long-awaited trip. Traveling with Backcountry Journeys is an active tour and often planned several months in advance. Protecting your trip is worth serious consideration.
Our tours can accommodate a set amount of guest. After you register for a trip that spot is no longer available. Once the tour is full, no more registrations invitations are taken. Therefore, our terms and conditions are designed so cancelling less than 120 days prior to your trip departure date results in no refund. With trip insurance, not only is your payment to us covered, but your flights, hotels and other travel costs can also be insured.
