Trip Insurance

To protect your Mountain Guide Program investment The American Mountain Guides Association recommends that you purchase a Travelex Travel Select protection plan, with the Adventure Sports Coverage optional upgrade (not available to WA and FL residents, scroll to the bottom of this page for options). If prior to departure you, a family member traveling with you or a traveling companion needs to cancel, or if during your trip, an interruption due to a covered reason occurs, a travel protection plan will help provide reimbursement for your pre-paid non-refundable travel arrangements. The protection plan also can provide coverage for trip delays, baggage loss or delays, medical expenses, medical evacuation and more!

Important info: 

  • AMGA members must purchase Travel Select coverage and select the Adventure Sport upgrade to be covered for AMGA program activities (not available to WA and FL residents, scroll to the bottom of this page for options)
  • Coverage MUST be purchased within two weeks of paying your program deposit
  • Unfortunately, if you are NOT traveling more than 100 miles from your home to participate on the program, Travelex will not be able to insure your program investment
