Kimberly Franke, Yellow Dog’s in-house Travel Insurance Specialist and favorite Aussie, knows that canceling an angling vacation is no joke. She explains, “It can take years to plan your ideal fly fishing adventure, but only seconds for it to be ruined.”
Yellow Dog’s plans can cost as little as 6 to 8% of your total package price. Well worth the investment. Kimberly provides the top five reasons for purchasing trip insurance with your next fly fishing package:
Reason 1: Most anglers are traveling with friends and in groups. If anyone in your party falls ill, suffers an injury or has to cancel for any other reason that causes you to pull the plug on the trip, you’re covered 100%.
Reason 2: Many of us have pre-existing conditions. Any personal illness previously diagnosed that may arise before or during your travels is covered under our plans. Trip insurance also protects YOU if a member of your party is affected by a pre-existing condition which causes you to cancel.
Reason 3: Many travelers have elderly parents. With an insurance plan, you can rest easy with the assurance that you will be reimbursed in the event that you have to cancel due to an unforseen event with a senior family member.
Reason 4: Ever heard of a hurricane? Many tropical locations popular for angling travel experience extreme weather. It comes with the territory. Cover yourself.
Reason 5: Own your own business? Many Yellow Dog clients are self-employed or CEOs of significant enterprises. Trip insurance will protect you in the event of having to cancel a trip for business reasons.
