Uniworld Travel Protection Plan
SECTION 1: Travel Arrangement Protection
Provided by Uniworld*
Trip Cancellation: Up To Total Trip Cost
Reimburses the non-refundable Uniworld cancellation penalties imposed if you must cancel your trip for a covered reason such as illness, injury or death to you, a traveling companion or an immediate family member. Other covered reasons for cancellation include Common Carrier– caused delays due to inclement weather, jury duty, subpoena, or a documented traffic accident en route to departure, and other reasons as cited in the plan description.
The Uniworld “Any Reason” Cancellation Waiver**
With the Uniworld “Any Reason” Cancellation Waiver, Uniworld will provide you with 100% of the Uniworld cancellation penalties in the form of a future travel credit certificate, should you cancel your cruise/tour prior to your original scheduled flight departure time for any reason that is not eligible for cash reimbursement under the Trip Cancellation section of the Travel Protection Plan. Cancellation penalties are reimbursed in the form of a Uniworld Travel Certificate allowing you a two (2) year credit to travel with us at a later date. Please note that to be eligible for the “Any Reason Cancellation Waiver,” you must enroll and pay for the plan at the time you make your initial trip deposit. The certificate is valid for two years, is nontransferable, non-refundable and may not be redeemed for cash. Future travel certificates do not include airfare cancellation charges for air arrangements unless those arrangements were provided by Uniworld.
SECTION 2: Travel Insurance Benefits
Underwritten by Transamerica Casualty Insurance Company***
Trip Interruption: Up to Total Trip Cost
Reimburses up to the Total Trip Cost the cost of prepaid, unused land or water travel arrangements and/or additional airfare expenses to catch up to the trip or to return home due to covered illness, injury or other reasons as listed in the plan.
Trip Delay: Up to $1,000 ($150/Per Day)
Reimburses up to $1,000 ($150/day) of additional expenses for hotel accommodations, meals and transportation if your trip is delayed for 12 or more hours due to common carrier delays, loss or theft of passports, travel documents, natural disaster and other reasons as listed in the plan.
Baggage Protection: Up to $2,500
If your baggage or personal property is lost, stolen, or damaged, the plan will cover up to $2,500. If your bags are delayed or misdirected for more than 24 hours, the plan will reimburse you up to $500 for the purchase of necessary personal items. This coverage ends upon your return home.
Medical and Dental Expenses: Up to $50,000 Should you become injured or sick during your vacation, the plan will reimburse you up to $50,000 for necessary medical expenses for up to one (1) year from the date of your accident or illness or emergency dental treatment incurred during your tour. This coverage is especially important, as Medicare and many private insurance policies generally do not cover you outside of the U.S., and many HMOs do not cover you outside their provider area.
Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation: Up to $50,000
In the event that a covered illness or injury requires air or ground transportation to a specialized facility or to return home, the plan provides up to $50,000 in covered medical services and supplies (coordinated by our 24-hour assistance provider, to help ensure your safe transport). The plan also provides payment for transportation of mortal remains in the event of death that occurs during the tour.

Provided by On Call International
24-Hour Worldwise Emergency Assistance:
