trip insurance

Friendship Force ambassadors are required to secure adequate travel and medical insurance to cover emergencies during their Journeys. This requirement can be fulfilled in one of the following ways:

  • through the ambassador’s existing health insurance policy if it covers international travel or out of state travel
  • through the policy offered by FFI
  • by purchasing a separate travel insurance policy

PLEASE NOTE: Cancellation benefits are only paid for covered reasons. Tour operator cancellation is not a covered reason. Therefore, if your trip is canceled by the tour provider (tour company, host club, airline, FFI, etc,) for any reason, including government shutdown or closed borders because of Covid-19, you will not receive cancellation coverage. Becoming ill with Covid or testing positive before your trip or during your trip is a covered reason and benefits are available.
