Trip Insurance

The American Mountain Guides Association highly recommends that you purchase a Travelex Travel Select protection plan, with the Adventure Sports Coverage optional upgrade, to help protect you and your Mountain Guide Program tuition investment. 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 provides coverage for trip delays, baggage loss or delays, medical expenses, medical evacuation and more!
