Travel Insurance

AAS suggests that you consider the purchase of travel insurance. Especially in expensive courses. This insurance may cover costs if you are unable to join your course due to personal emergency, personal or family medical reasons. It may also cover evacuation and medical expenses in the result of illness or injury.

Check with your travel agent for more policies. Many outdoor companies recommend and work with Travelguard or DogTag.
