TRAVEL PROTECTION

Blue Water Ventures (BWV) strongly suggests that participants purchase Travel Protection
for the
full value of your trip (trip cost and airfare) for all international trip destinations. Travel Protection is a cost effective way to help protect you and your investment.

Since some benefits are time sensitive, including the Pre-Existing Condition Waiver, we encourage all travelers to purchase a plan at the time of initial deposit.

 

To include the Pre-Existing Condition Waiver, trip protection must be purchased within 18 days from when your initial trip deposit is sent to Blue Water Ventures or within 18 days from when a airlines ticket is purchased.

You may still purchase Travel Protection at a later date, but the pre-existing condition waiver will not be included. 


Travel Protection Plans offer a variety of benefits, including coverage for medical evacuations, a cost that we cannot cover for you. Plans also offer benefits for Trip Cancellation and Interruption, in addition to many other insurance benefits and non-insurance assistance services.

Travel Protection helps provide coverage for unexpected circumstances and helps protect you and your travel investment. Please refer to your plan document for complete plan details and exclusions and limitations.

We offer Travel Protection through Travel Insured International
