The Galapagos Islands – Western ItineraryTravel Insurance

Orbridge strongly recommends that you purchase travel and cancellation insurance to protect your investment in the event of unexpected or unforeseen circumstances. It is best to look into travel insurance immediately after making your deposit. Depending on the insurance provider, some coverage can be linked to timing of initial payment. Check your options carefully. If you are on an international departure, you should purchase travel insurance that—at a minimum—provides emergency medical, evacuation, and repatriation coverage. Information regarding an insurance program will be sent to you directly from your alumni association. You also may wish to visit your alumni association’s travel website at for more information.

Given the remoteness of the Galapagos Islands, we strongly recommend the purchase of travel insurance with medical coverage, including flight evacuation. Without coverage, it may be difficult and at great cost to guests to obtain emergency medical assistance while on the islands. Reference the travel insurance suggestion that accompanied the invoice confirmation you received after making your reservation.
