                  IMPORTANT TRIP INSURANCE INFORMATION

                  Please see the information below regarding trip insurance.

                  Dear Ken and Amy,

                  There is an important change coming to the travel protection policies offered by our preferred travel insurance provider, Travel Insured.

                  Starting today, policies which include the “Cancel for Any Reason” (or CFAR) feature, must be purchased within 14 days of the traveler’s deposit date. Plans which do not include the CFAR can still be purchased up until the date of the final payment.

                  As you have contracted a trip with us prior to the announcement of this change, all travelers in your group will have until October 16 to purchase a policy with the CFAR feature. After this date, the CFAR feature will no longer be available for your travelers to purchase.

                  For more information on the insurance policies, please see the attached flyer.

                  Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions!
