Travel Protection

With a Travel Insured International plan, you’ll have valuable travel protection coverage that travels with you. We recommend all pilgrims traveling with Verso Ministries consider purchasing travel protection to help protect you and your travel investments.

Travel Insured International

Cover your trip investment from those unforeseen circumstances that may arise before or during your trip. Travel Insured International (TII) provides valuable coverage at an affordable price and includes added benefits, such as a waiver of Pre-existing Medical Condition Exclusion and Cancel for Any Reason coverage, if travel protection is purchased during the time sensitive period (additional terms apply). Please refer to the plan document for eligibility requirements and details.

Insurance Coverages

All TII plans include travel insurance coverages to protect your investment in your trip and to protect you while you are away. Coverages offered by TII include:

Coverages may vary and not all coverage is available in every state.

Travel Protection benefits are subject to exclusions and limitations, including an exclusion for pre-existing conditions.

Coverage varies by state. For complete coverage information, please refer to the plan document by visiting www.TravelInsured.com.

Non-Insurance Assistance Services

Non-insurance assistance services provide immediate support while you’re on the trip. Such services help add value to the plan. Additionally, these services complement your Travel Insurance Benefits and help get you the assistance you need.

The following non-insurance services are included with the purchase of any travel protection plan:

Optional Coverage

Some plans offer you the option of adding coverage to your plan so you have extra or increased coverage in addition to the standard plan benefits. These optional coverages are available at an additional cost.

The following can be included on eligible plans if elected and associated fees have been paid.

*You must purchase the plan within the time sensitive period and satisfy additional eligibility criteria. This benefit is not available to residents of New York State.

Family Friendly Coverage

If your children are traveling with you, be sure to include them when you purchase your plan. If you would like to see a cost breakdown, we can provide you the price of the plan.

FAQ

A travel protection plan covers your trip investment in the event you have a qualifying reason for cancellation (e.g. sickness, injury, or death of you, a family member, traveling companion, or business partner). Travel protection can also help if your flight is delayed due to inclement weather, if you get hurt or sick while you are traveling and incur medical expenses, and with a host of other unforeseen circumstances. Travel protection also comes with many additional benefits such as 24/7 Worldwide Non-Insurance Assistance Services.

  • It’s late at night and you have one more connecting flight before you’re finally home again. Unfortunately, as you arrive at your gate, you learn that the plane is down for maintenance and that flight has been delayed for 8 hours. Travel protection helps you to pay for a hotel room for the night.
  • You’re standing at the baggage carousel in a foreign city. The belt is still turning but there are no more bags coming out. Your bags were sent to the wrong airport, and the airline won’t be able to get to them to you for more than a day. Travel protection helps you pay for a change of clothes and toiletries while you wait for your bags to arrive.
  • You were just enjoying a leisurely stroll down the streets of Paris when, all of a sudden, someone rushed by and snatched your purse. Your passport and credit card happened to be inside. Travel protection reimburses you for up to $100 to replace your passport, up to $100 associated with the unauthorized use of your credit card, and up to $250 to compensate you for the loss of your purse.
  • Your entire family has been planning a pilgrimage to the Holy Land for well over a year. The day before you’re set to depart, you get a call from your brother telling you he’s quite ill. Your brother goes to the hospital and the doctors tell him that he has a serious illness. The family decides it would be best to cancel. Travel protection reimburses non-refundable, prepaid payments made towards the trip.
  •  You’re enjoying the beauty of Rome’s grand architecture and sampietrini cobblestone streets until you suddenly twist your ankle and feel something pop. Instantly things start to swell and it’s obvious you’re going to need medical treatment, but your major medical plan does not apply overseas. Travel protection covers your medical bill.

These are all illustrations of situations where travel protection may apply. This should not be considered to be a guarantee of payment.

Worldwide Trip Protector and Worldwide Trip Protector Plus plans are based on the age of traveler at the time of purchase, traveler’s state of residence, length of trip, and the total trip cost. Group Plan rates, such as Deluxe and Student Deluxe, are based on the total trip cost.

Your trip cost is the sum of your pre-paid, non-refundable travel expenses. The travel expenses that contribute to trip cost are generally items like airfare, accommodations, rental car, and packages. 

Yes, you can increase your trip cost up until you depart for your trip. Increasing or decreasing your trip cost could result in a change in your plan cost. If you need to modify your trip cost, it’s always best to do so within the allotted time for your plan to maintain benefit eligibility for any subsequent travel arrangements.

To modify your trip cost, please contact TII’s Customer Care at (855) 752-8303 or access your TII account online. For instructions on how to modify your trip via your TII account, please click here.

No, the full trip cost does not need to be insured, but the portions that are insured would be those non-refundable costs, which would need to be insured within the time-sensitive period listed in the plan. However, any portions of the trip costs not insured would not be eligible for coverage in the event of a claim.

Your coverage is effective at 12:01 a.m. the day after you purchase your plan and typically ends on the last day of travel.

Each TII plan comes with a fourteen day look period. This refers to the amount of time during which you are eligible to cancel your plan and receive a refund of your plan cost.
