Is travel insurance mandatory?

Whether or not you are required to purchase travel insurance for your adventure is determined by your adventure operator.

Some operators do require mandatory insurance, while others leave this to the discretion of their travellers. You can find out if insurance is mandatory for your adventure by checking the operator’s Terms and Conditions.

You can also ask your adventure operator to clarify whether insurance is mandatory or not, by sending a message from your Booking Conversation Page once you’ve booked your adventure or use the ‘Ask a Question’ button if you’ve found an adventure that interests you, and they’ll let you know.

When travel insurance isn’t mandatory, TourRadar and each of our adventure operators always highly recommend insurance, as you never know when an emergency might come up. Insurance is better to have and not need than to need and not have.
