Updated March 6, 2020

Upcoming Adventure Life trips to mainland China have been canceled. Some countries and cruise suppliers are taking precautions to protect visitors and are restricting access to travelers who reside in, visited, or transited mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Iran, and any municipality in Italy subject to lockdown (quarantine) measures by the Italian Government. This restriction is enforced within determined time frames (commonly 14-30 days) prior to arrival at their borders. A list of country restrictions compiled by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) can be found here. Please contact your operations coordinator if you have plans to travel to these areas listed above within 30 days of the start of your Adventure Life trip

Many of you are contacting us and your travel insurance carriers to ask about travel insurance’s coverage of coronavirus. It is important to note that fear of travel, travel advisories and destinations being inaccessible due to this illness are not covered risks under common travel policies. Insurance will cover medical assistance and evacuation if you fall ill or if contracting the illness forces you to cancel/interrupt your trip. Plans where the Cancel for Any Reason upgrade has been purchased may allow travelers to cancel their trip according to the terms of the plan.​
