Travelex Insurance

Travel Insurance (US residents)

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

Travelex insurance is available for ANI's US travelers.

Travelex offers Medical Evacuation Plans, as well as Travel Protection Plans that include medical evacuation, emergency medical expenses, trip cancellation and interruption and other benefits.

Medical Evacuation, Trip Cancellation & Interruption (Trips up to $50,000)
