While Japan is one of the safest countries in the world, travel in general can be unpredictable. Having travel insurance gives you a peace of mind that you will be taken care of in most unexpected or unforeseeable situations.
Not only do we highly encourage travel insurance, we require it. Specifically, you must have $100K evacuation coverage. As a small company, we cannot afford to extract our travelers in the event of a major medical, political or security events.
We are licensed by Arch Roam Right to offer insurance but you are not required to buy our insurance. Feel free to shop around!
When you are spending a lot of money on a trip it is nice to have peace of mind that if anything happens (cancellations, emergencies, lost luggage, etc) that you have someone to take care of you during that time.
That is why we have partnered with Arch Roam Right. We feel they provide everything you might want from a travel insurance at an affordable rate.
I personally purchase travel insurance for any international trip because I want that peace of mind, and I’ll tell you why…
Even the best planned trips can get cancelled, COVID as certainly taught us that. If you have spent thousands of dollars on trip, it’s nice to know that you can be refunded in the event of cancellations.
Airlines, tour companies and some hotels require pre-payment due to the volatile nature of cancellations and travel. These payments are usually non-refundable and having travel insurance will help!
Emergencies can happen. We don’t like to think about it and we assume it won’t happen to us, but it happens. Having emergency coverage means that in the event of an accident you don’t have to worry about how to pay for something. You can get the treatment and get reimbursed by the insurance.
Outside of emergencies, any health issues are likely not covered by your current health insurance when traveling internationally. If you need non-emergency medical care for any reason, having insurance can really save your financially.
Either due to serious sickness or injury or due to political unrest, evacuations can be costly. We are talking six figures. Many insurances come with evacuation insurance and that alone can be worth the cost. Most tour operators require it as well, for good reason.
In 2016, the world’s airlines lost or temporarily misplaced 21.6 million bags. Yikes! If this happens to you what do you do? Usually, buy new clothing, belongings etc. That can get expensive and possibly blow your budget for your entire trip!
With travel insurance, you can reimbursed for any lost belongings that had to be replaced. That way, you aren’t forced to end a trip early due to losing a bag.
