Travel Guard Insurance

Medical evacuation insurance for US and Canadian residents

Travel Insurance (US and Canadian residents)

Due to the high cost of evacuation from Antarctica, all guests are required to provide cover for medical evacuation

Travel Guard insurance is available for ANI’s US and Canadian travelers. Travel Guard insurance is not currently available for travelers from other countries. Travel Guard offers single trip and annual Medical Evacuation Plans, as well as Travel Protection Plans that include medical evacuation and emergency medical expenses, trip cancellation and interruption and other benefits.
