Group Travel Network strongly advocates for all travelers to review their options for Trip Protection. For most groups, Trip Protection options may be offered at registration. Trip Protection plans vary and it is up to the traveler and account holder to research the best options for their needs. Group Travel Network works with Travel Insured as well as TripMate, two companies who provide superior options and customer service to the student and group travel patrons.

Post Departure Student Travel Protection

Trip Protection helps protect your group by offering student travel protection required for many European and domestic destinations.

It helps to know you have a backup plan. Not only do we move thousands of students every year, but also millions of dollars in instruments and uniforms. Any number of unexpected situations can happen on a trip with large student groups. Trip protection is offered at the point of registration through our online system.
