Why We Recommend Travel Protection

Bold Earth strongly recommends purchasing travel protection to safeguard families from the risk of unexpected expenses due to last-minute cancellation of, or early departure from, a student’s adventure. Although this does not frequently occur; incidents such as illness, injury, and family emergencies can arise. In the event that an incident such as this occurs after tuition has been paid, travel protection can help recover the cost of tuition as well as expenses such as medical care and last-minute airfare. Travel protection is not required by Bold Earth; however, our many years of running programs have taught us that this is often a worthwhile investment for families.

We offer our families the choice between a basic policy and a cancel for any reason policy. We suggest opting for Cancel For Any Reason, or CFAR (not available to NY residents). You can read an overview of policy coverage in the link below and reference more in-depth information in this link.
