Types of Travel Insurance

Swoop Antarctica is not licensed to offer travel insurance, however we can provide advice. To get a quote we would recommend you contact a local provider or one of the suggested companies our customers use indicated below.

It is worth noting the different types of travel insurance available:

  • Medical and Emergency Insurance is essential and you should not travel without it. It is relatively inexpensive to purchase.
  • Pre Trip Cancellation cover provides financial protection in case of cancellation by you between the point you book your trip (and place down a deposit) and travel. As such this type of policy isn't necessary if you book close to your departure date. Given the cost of a trip to Antarctica having this protection in place is a good idea, however it is a more expensive policy.
