The short answer – yes. Travel insurance is compulsory on all Globetrotting rides and is a condition of booking with Globetrotting, regardless if you’re travelling within your home country or abroad. When selecting a travel insurance policy we require that at a minimum you are covered for horse riding as an activity, and medical expenses, including emergency repatriation.
When looking for a travel insurance policy make sure it covers personal liability, loss of luggage and personal effects and most importantly cancellation insurance. This will cover cancellation penalties in certain circumstances if you have to cancel your trip unexpectedly due to illness, injury or unforeseen circumstances. Unfortunately cancellation insurance will not cover you if you change your mind (unless you take the ‘cancel for any reason’ insurance – which we recommend.)
Your insurance policy including the specific name of your insurance company, policy number and emergency insurance contact number MUST be provided before you start your ride. You’ll be able to upload your travel insurance details within your Globetrotter profile.
