Travel Insurance

We find travel insurance essential and ask all participants to secure coverage.

Vacations are an investment and you need to safeguard that money in case, for example,

  1. you need to cancel your tour outside of Bike and the Like’s clearly stated refund policies above and no refund is possible,
  2. you test positive for Covid during the tour and need to seek hotel accommodations, meals, etc. at your own expense,
  3. you incur emergency medical treatment while abroad,
  4. Something delays or cancels your flight, or
  5. baggage is lost or delayed.

Suzie and Roger advocate a comprehensive travel insurance plan that includes the “cancel for any reason” add-on.

There are many trusted travel insurance companies that offer reasonable rates.
We suggest researching sites such as:

  1. Square Mouth
  2. Travelinsurance.com and
  3. Insure my trip
to investigate reputable companies and compare their coverages and rates.

All travel company websites should have excellent comparative analysis of plans and a phone number to call so you can speak to a knowledgeable agent.
