Conservation Volunteers International Program requires every trip participant on our volunteer trips to obtain medical ($50,000) and emergency evacuation ($500,000) insurance valid in the trip destination.
If you purchase coverage at the time of your initial reservation, the ‘Pre-existing Conditions Exclusion’ may be waived by your insurance company (certain exclusions apply).
We strongly encourage the purchase of general travel insurance as well. Comprehensive travel protection provides for trip cancellation and interruption, travel delay, loss of baggage and travel documents and baggage delay.
With the threat of COVID-19 still an important consideration, we encourage you to consider “cancel for any reason” travel insurance. We also refer you to a recent Travel Insurance article on US News which you may find helpful: https://travel.usnews.com/features/the-best-travel-insurance-companies
ConservationVIP® does not make specific company recommendations. We leave your choice of company and other travel insurance up to you. To help you compare and choose the insurance you prefer, here are links to the programs most often used by or travelers:
