Travel Protection

At Grand Asian Journeys, we believe that travel protection is a great value and helps protect you and your trip investment!  Travel protection plans help provide coverage for Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Emergency Medical and Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation, Trip Delay, Baggage Delay and more. Travel Protection plans also include 24-Hour Travel Assistance & Concierge Services*.

Whether your destination is domestic or international, we recommend that you consider purchasing travel protection. Consider the unexpected:

  • What if you can’t leave home due to an accident, unforeseen sickness or natural disaster?
  • Where would you go if you were injured while traveling in a foreign country?
  • What would you do without clothing and medications if your bags were lost?
  • What if you miss a connecting flight and become delayed for a long time?

“On the day I was to fly home I came down with a very bad case of food poisoning which necessitated canceling my flight and spending the night at the Travel Clinic (CIWEC CLINIC). If I had not had Travel Insurance, the night I spent in that facility would have cost me $1100. For a night in the hospital that sounds cheap by American standards, but as it turned out I paid nothing for excellent, professional care from an international staff.”

“Just a note from one who’s used the Grand Asian Journeys recommended insurance: I had to return early from my last trip to Nepal having contracted pneumonia.  The company which insured me (thru the GAJ website) was very helpful getting me home early and changing all my airline tickets.  I was doubtful that I’d get much, if any, of my trip fee returned…..but, lo and behold, 12 days after sending my information in, I received a check which fully reimbursed me.” (Sandy’s coverage included trip cancellation and interruption)
