Today’s active vacationers require complete coverage in pursuit of their next once-in-a-lifetime
activity. AIG Travel Guard, a leading provider of travel insurance and assistance plans, has launched an adventure travel insurance plan that provides coverage for many activities excluded in most travel plans, including bungee jumping, mountain climbing, sky diving and motor sports.

Adventure travel continues to be one of the fastest-growing segments of global tourism. Understanding the unique and rapidly changing interests and perspectives of adventuresome people is critical in serving this growing market.

“Adventure travel continues to be a high growth area for American tourism,” said John Noel, AIG Travel Guard’s chief executive officer. “Adventure travelers need coverage that the typical traveler does not — that’s why we created this special niche plan. Not only does it include insurance coverage, it also has a special hotline that’s a great resource for adventuresome travelers.”

The Adventure Travel Protection Plan offers a range of coverage, including coverage for participation in athletic events, motor sports, mountain climbing, aircraft flying and air travel including sky-diving and hot-air ballooning. The plan also provides a 24/7 Adventure Traveler’s Hotline* which offers weather reports and travel advisories, assistance locating trails and rafting locations, information on access issues, construction and detour information and locations of nearby gear shops, guides and outfitters. The plan also offers optional Cancel for Any Reason coverage and optional Car Rental Collision coverage.

AIG Travel Guard has also introduced a series of enhancements to its “Active Suite” of plans — the Adventure Travel Protection, Sportsman’s Travel Protection and Tee, Tour and Travel plans. The enhancements include higher overage limits and new features designed to provide increased coverage to travelers who continue to pursue their favorite activities while on vacation.

The complete family of travel insurance and assistance service plans available through AIG Travel Guard can be purchased online at, through Travel Guard’s 24-hour World Service Center (800-826-1300), or from one of the more than 16,000 travel agencies.

AIG Travel Guard is one of America’s leading providers of travel insurance plans for more than 6 million travelers each year. Travel insurance plans through AIG Travel Guard are distributed by more than 12,000 travel agents across the United States.

Travel insurance through AIG Travel Guard may include coverage for trip cancellation, travel interruptions and delays, emergency medical expenses, medical evacuation expenses, and lost or delayed baggage. AIG Travel Guard’s plans also includes 24-hour travel emergency service* for emergency medical assistance, last-minute or emergency travel changes, lost luggage tracking,
pre-trip travel advice, and more.

  3. Great information,

    It is easy to find a lot of health insurance companies online.What is not easy is to find genuine health insurance company.
    They are reputable companies that offer many insurances and all of them are with free quotes.
    There you can find the cheapest price because they are not middleman, like 99% of the online sites that offer health insurances.
    A friend of mine told about such a company.I thought it will be helpful for every one to share it here.

    BE AWARE: Many health insurance plans gives you coverage when you are out of the US but your deductable which may be in the thousends of $ will apply. If you are covered by one of those (which may be the case with BCBS), Travel Guard does not reimburse you for the deductable amount – see page 10 of their policy. That was also confirmed by their reprsentative.
