At East End Lodge, we strongly recommend that our clients purchase “Trip Insurance”. While we promise a one of a kind fishing adventure; our partner Global Rescue can promise you a one of a kind “Trip Insurance & Rescue Evacuation Services”.
Do I Really Need Fly Fishing Vacation Travel Insurance?
Even when you’ve been planning a trip of a lifetime to East End Lodge, things can get in the way of your travel arrangements. Imagine if you or a close family member suffers a medical emergency a couple of days before you’re scheduled to depart. Or life offers a joyous surprise such as a new Grand Baby! Whichever it may be, it is suddenly impossible for you to get away. That’s where Global Rescue Trip Insurance can help. Global Rescue also offers a Signature Plus plan where you can cancel for any reason. Even for something as simple as undesirable weather. Travel Insurance is a minimal investment compared to the total cost of your trip.
You’ll discover that Global Rescue Travel Insurance & Evacuation is just as valuable once you arrive on the Island. Chances are good that you already have health Insurance. However, many people don’t realize that their standard health insurance policy doesn’t always provide sufficient protection when traveling abroad. In the event that you are injured or become ill while away from home, Global Rescue Evacuation will step in and not only cover the gap, they will provide you with top-notch medical care. Global Rescue coverage ensures that you are evacuated to your home hospital of choice, anywhere in the world.
Basic Vacation Insurance
We often hear people say that trip insurance simply costs too much. They are already investing a considerable amount in the vacation itself, and they can’t imagine why they would spend even more money on insurance coverage that they are unlikely to use.
Time and again, we’ve discovered the fallacy of this thinking. An average week at the East End Lodge can cost several thousand dollars. Basic vacation insurance to protect that investment costs less than $200. Compared to the expense of the overall vacation, the cost of trip insurance is a mere drop in the bucket.
Nonetheless, this inexpensive insurance policy protects you in an incredibly wide range of situations that may arise before or during your vacation. Whether you break your leg a week before you’re due to arrive on Grand Bahama Island or your trip has to be cut short because of a tropical storm, you’re covered, and that protection cost you less than $200.
After reviewing the travel insurance offered by some of the most reputable insurers in the business, we settled on a company that offers outstanding coverage at affordable rates. Here is a sampling of what your trip insurance will cover.
- Trip cancellation insured up to $100,000
- Trip interruption insured up to 150% of trip cost insured
- Up to $2,500 for lost luggage/baggage delay
- $100,000 emergency medical/dental coverage
- $100,000 common carrier AD&D coverage
- Up to $2,500 for sports equipment rental
- Cancel-for-any-reason coverage 75% of trip cost
- Interrupt-for-any-reason coverage 75% of trip cost
Clearly, the Global Rescue Insurance that we offer is designed to protect our guests regardless of what unexpected circumstances may arise. Even a relatively minor irritation like delayed baggage doesn’t have to cause you any worry.
In the event that you need to use any part of your travel insurance, initiating a claim is a breeze. By simply calling a toll-free number, you’ll be connected with a knowledgeable customer service person. Your situation will be reviewed by a professional claims analyst within no more than 24 hours of your call. In many instances, the review requires substantially less time.
This travel insurance offers additional protection if you purchase a policy within 15 days of booking your stay at the East End Lodge. You’ll receive protection in the event of the bankruptcy of the airline or tour operator, and you’ll be covered in the event that a pre-existing medical condition flares up and causes you to cancel your trip or cut it short.
Don’t Fall for Travel Insurance Myths
Too many travelers fall for myths that convince them that they don’t need trip insurance. For instance, we often hear people declare that they are going on this trip “no matter what.” While this type of determination nearly always leads to a successful vacation, there are those rare, unforeseen occasions when something goes wrong that undermines even the most die-hard angler.
Other travelers think the coverage is too expensive. However, doing the math proves otherwise. Travel insurance costs on average just four percent of the total cost of the trip. Seen in this light, it’s impossible to claim that it’s too expensive.
International Evacuation Emergency Insurance
This separate coverage through Global Rescue may be just as indispensable as the basic vacation insurance policy. East End Lodge has forged a partnership with Global Rescue because they are the recognized leader in the travel insurance industry. When things go disastrously wrong in the midst of the vacation of a lifetime, Global Rescue is there to help travelers get safe and healthy. They may even save your life.
Chances are good that you already have health insurance. However, many people don’t realize that their standard health insurance policy doesn’t always provide sufficient protection when they travel abroad. This means that you could be left with inadequate coverage if you get ill or injured when you are far from home.
Global Rescue comprehensively covers this gap by offering insurance coverage that ensures that you receive top-notch medical care and that you can be evacuated to your home country or the closest, most capable medical facility of your choice.
Global Rescue’s name really says it all. They are the experts when it comes to saving policy holders from peril in even the remotest corners of the globe. When medical emergencies, earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters strike, Global Rescue’s expert teams will do whatever is necessary to secure policy holders in need.
They’ll transport you to the hospital of your choice in your home country when you are ill or injured. Regardless of how remote your location, they’ll arrive to safely evacuate you. Experts at Johns Hopkins Medical Center will be at your disposal thanks to Global Rescue, and many travelers appreciate the availability of paramedics and security personnel regardless of where they roam. A 24/7 Operations Center makes it easy for people to reach Global Rescue whenever they need to.
Global Rescue offers a variety of membership options. Many of our guests choose coverage for a single trip to East End Lodge. Others, being genuinely impressed by the protection Global Rescue provides and the affordability of the insurance, choose to become annual members so that all of their travels will be covered. Whichever option you select is certain to provide you with valuable peace of mind for the duration of your stay.
Emergency evacuation coverage is separate and distinct from travel insurance. Where trip insurance reimburses you for covered losses, the protection offered by Global Rescue is designed to remove you from a perilous situation with utmost efficiency. Most basic travel insurance plans cannot offer that, making the addition of a Global Rescue policy to your vacation plans all-but indispensable.
East End Lodge wants everyone to fully enjoy their experience. That’s why we have partnered with Global Rescue to make these valuable insurance options available to our guests. With comprehensive protection at a reasonable cost; most guests can’t afford not to choose Global rescue.
