Travel Insurance

We would recommend you get your travel insurance soon after booking. Adequate travel insurance is vital for this trip for three reasons:

  1. These bookings are often taken a year in advance and if anything happens to a member of your party during that year which affects your ability to travel, you would then, be able to claim back any cancellation fees.
  2. You are travelling to wilds of Africa and you want to make sure that if anything unforeseen was to happen whilst on your trip that you are protected.
  3. It is a condition of travelling with Weekend a la Carte that you have a policy in place.

We recommend TAGCONNECT for insurance as they are travel specialists.
