Walking Tree will follow the published itineraries as closely as possible. However, it may be necessary or advantageous to alter our programs slightly because of weather, transportation impediments, or unexpected opportunities. If changes are necessary, we will provide as much notice to students and families as possible.
Our experience has taught us that travel can be unpredictable. As such, we strongly recommend that our participants purchase a separate travel insurance policy that helps to cover them financially in the event of an unforeseen complication. Coverage for trip cancellation, trip interruption, emergency medical treatment, emergency medical evacuation, and lost or stolen baggage are basic tenets of any good policy. Walking Tree is happy to facilitate the purchase of such a policy through a company with which we’ve worked in the past for an additional fee. Otherwise, we encourage you to research other options but we highly recommend additional coverage while your son or daughter is abroad.
