PROTECTING YOUR TRAVEL 

Your trip investment is worth protecting to safeguard against unexpected events that can prevent you from traveling and being assessed significant cancellation fees.

     -CANCELLATION PROTECTION PLAN (CPP) - MOTORCOACH TOURS ONLY  

       Cancellation protection is not insurance but a simple plan to protect you from losing funds if you must cancel for a covered reason. If you cancel for a covered 

       reason, prior to departure, you will be reimbursed for the amount you paid for your trip. This covers cancellation only. No coverages apply after the tour starts. 

 

     -TRAVELEX 360 GROUP INSURANCE PLAN 

      The 360° Group Choice protection plan is insurance. Enjoy trip cancellation & interruption benefits, emergency medical coverage, along with 24/7 travel assistance & 

      concierge services. 

 

The enrollment form & payment needs to be completed BEFORE or AT THE TIME of final payment. Customers are NOT allowed to enroll after the final payment has been made. For complete plan information, please contact Allied or your local travel advisor.

Travel documents will be sent approximately two weeks before departure, provided full payment has been received. The documents will include a detailed itinerary, departure times and locations, hotel lists, medical forms, luggage tags, and other helpful information.
