Travel Insurance

We recommend that all riders purchase trip cancellation insurance as we are unable to make exceptions to our cancellation policy for any reason, including personal emergencies. Travel insurance* can cover the cost of your America by Bicycle tour and other travel expenses in case you cancel for any number of covered reasons. There are restrictions on cancellations related to existing medical conditions, including being affected by the time lapsed from your initial deposit with America by Bicycle. Allianz Global Assistance (see below) requires travelers to purchase trip cancellation insurance within 14 days of making the initial deposit as one condition  to cover existing medical conditions. Other insurance providers may vary.

We recommend, but do not require, working through Allianz Global Assistance. To receive a quote and coverage information for trip insurance, call 800-284-8300 or visit their website http://allianztravelinsurance.com. Please provide the ACCAM Number: F026752 for America by Bicycle.
