Travel Protection Plans
Each of USC Trojan Travel’s trips is designed to put your safety and comfort first. However, purchasing a travel protection plan is an important precaution to cover you, your family and your investment should an unforeseen incident occur.
Note: Some tour operators are including supplemental insurance coverage as a secondary benefit on medical evacuation, medical expenses and trip delay. This does not protect the value of your trip in case of a cancellation or interruption. We strongly recommend that you protect yourself and your investment in the event of an unforeseeable event as well have added benefits that the supplemental coverage does not include like “cancel for any reason” or “Pre-existing medical waivers”.
The following information concerning the available travel protection plans was prepared by USI Travel Insurance Services (TIS).*
