    Travel tools

    In this evolving world of travel, there’s a lot to take into consideration before you take off on a big adventure. We have gathered some handy travel tools and links below to help you keep informed on borders, passport and visa requirements, health information travel insurance and more. Please speak to your personal travel manager if you have any questions about preparing for an upcoming trip.

    Travel insurance

    “If you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel!”

    You’ve probably heard this phrase at some point before, and it couldn’t be more accurate. Travel insurance is essential to any trip as it covers your medical expenses, valuables, and travel plans should there be a delay or interruption to your schedule. Pre-existing conditions and any specific activities, such as skiing, can also be covered. Discuss your travel insurance needs with your personal travel manager.
