*When selecting a travel insurance policy, we recommend that each participant reviews the terms and conditions of their chosen policy carefully, especially to confirm coverage for COVID-19 if that is a concern. HEFY is not qualified to answer technical questions about the benefits, exclusions, and conditions of travel protection plans. HEFY cannot evaluate the adequacy of the prospective insured’s existing insurance coverage. If you have any questions about your travel protection plans, consult one of the brokers above or your personal insurance broker.
**Without adequate travel insurance you may not be able to recoup your expenses if the trip is cancelled by HEFY or you choose not to travel. You acknowledge that without this coverage, there may be no way to recoup any losses, costs or expenses incurred. If you choose to travel without adequate coverage, we will not be liable for any of your losses howsoever arising, for which trip protection plan coverage would otherwise have been available.
***You may have existing travel assistance and insurance benefits through memberships such as AAA or credit cards such as American Express or Chase. We strongly recommend you consider these benefits in determining the best way to protect your travel.
