      Pre-Departure Trip Cancelation Insurance -  As per the instruction of Westfield High School, the Trip Cancelation Insurance is included in the tour price. Select this option.  This plan provides coverage for Trip Cancellation for a Covered Reason (pre-departure) and Trip interruption benefits,  Trip Delay, Baggage Delay and Loss, Theft or Damage, Medical Expense and Emergency Evacuation coverage, and more. Paying for this when paying your deposit eliminates any pre-existing conditions.  With this insurance, 100% of your trip cost can be refunded if you cancel for a covered reason.

      Cancel For Any Reason - This plan includes all of the benefits of Trip Cancelation Insurance, but if your decision to cancel is not for a covered reason, you may still cancel and receive 75% of your trip cost by refund.  This insurance is 1.7 times more expensive than Trip Cancelation Insurance.
