Travel Insurance
We believe that safety and enjoyment are equally important when travelling with Encounters Travel (a trading name of Uncover the World Travel Ltd.).  It is therefore one of our terms and conditions of booking that you have adequate travel insurance in place before you travel with us. 
Uncover the World Travel Ltd. has teamed up with Endsleigh to offer our travellers a policy which has been specifically designed to meet their requirements. To view full policy wording and the range of benefits and exclusions, please click here. A Key Facts document is also available. 
To purchase your Travel Insurance Cover, please add the policy to your online reservation or contact us at the time of booking. NB It is advisable to take out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip as cover will commence for pre-departure cancellation from the policy issue date. This will, therefore, provide cover should you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason. Uncover the World Travel is an appointed representative of Endsleigh Insurance Services Limited, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority (http://www.fsa.gov.uk/register/home.do). Endsleigh Insurance Services Limited. Company No: 856706 registered in England at Shurdington Road, Cheltenham Spa, Gloucestershire GL51 4UE. 

It is your responsibility to ensure that your insurance provides sufficient cover appropriate for the activities included in the tour.  If you do not purchase your travel insurance through us, then your policy needs to cover:

Medical Expenses & Repatriation
  • Personal Accident & Liability
  • Travel Delays, Abandonment & Missed Departure
We also strongly recommend that you obtain cover for the following:
  • Cancellation & Curtailment
  • Personal Effects, Baggage & Money
We will need to know the Policy Number, the Name of the Issuing Company, and the Policy Emergency Telephone Number before you travel. 
 
Note: we strongly recommend taking out travel insurance at the same time as you book the tour with us. This will ensure you are covered for cancellation costs and travel delays caused by strikes or other issues that may be announced closer to your departure.
