It is mandatory to have travel medical/ cancellation/ interruption insurance.
We offer a number of competitive insurance options. For student programs, our comprehensive travel insurance for youth is strongly recommended. This coverage includes the cost of your program (based on cancellation for medical reasons or death in the family), medical expenses, emergency medical, loss of baggage/ personal effects and flight accident and travel accident coverage. Please note however, that coverage for cancellation or interruption due to COVID-19 is not included in our insurance package. Once purchased, insurance is non-refundable.
Should you decide not to purchase insurance through us, you will be required to supply Global Journeys Academy with evidence of out-of-province medical coverage, as well as cancellation and interruption insurance within 48 hours of your application.
