Travel Insurance

Accidents can and do happen — whether it’s a missed flight en route or sudden illness while in a foreign country. The only way to protect yourself from unexpected expenses that arise from emergency situations is by making sure you’re covered, preferably before your plane touches down in your destination.

Thrive Creative Retreat recommends World Nomads travel insurance. Travelers can do things like request quotes, purchase coverage and files claims online. In the unlikely event where you require emergency assistance or evacuation, World Nomads’ teams are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Trip cancellation insurance may be the only means of receiving reimbursement for flights and other non-refundable expenses should an Thrive Creative Retreat trip be cancelled for any reason, whether voluntarily by you or as a result of Thrive Creative’s Retreats actions.

You are responsible for understanding the specifics of your travel insurance policy, ensuring that your policy covers all optional and included activities listed in the trip itinerary, and ensuring that there are no exclusion clauses (e.g., air delays due to mechanical issues) that would limit the coverage that you might reasonably need.

If you have current health insurance coverage, check your insurance policy to see if it provides the coverage described above while traveling outside your country. It is your responsibility to verify your insurance policy details with your insurance provider.

“Since returning from retreat,  I have changed the way I make decisions. Now I stop to check to see if those choices fit with my true intentions. It’s changed the level of stress when choosing between all the wonderful opportunities that come my way. Now I know how to say yes to my heart’s desire and no, not right now, to other things.

I never guessed how much it would have mattered. And then there was breathing deeply with like-minded women in one of the world’s most beautiful and inspiring places… I’m just thankful and changed.”
