Frequently Asked Questions

We highly suggest purchasing travel protection! Ican be beneficial in the event of cancellation, medical situations while traveling, or other unforeseen circumstances. For your convenience, CTS partners with a company called Travel Insured to provide optional coverage for our travelers.

In addition to the benefits of the standard plan (which you can view here), CFAR coverage also offers a recourse for reimbursement if travelers cancel for reasons which would normally be considered limitations or exclusions to the standard group policy. In these cases, the traveler would receive 75% of their nonrefundable trip costs back through the claims process, provided they meet the requirements of the CFAR plan. Trip cancellation must be 48 hours or more prior to scheduled departure. CFAR must be purchased at the time of plan purchase and within 10 days of your initial trip deposit. Travel Protection is not available to residents of New York State. You can contact Travel Insured with additional questions at 1-800-243-3174. 

Yes! In fact, we strongly recommend that you insure all travel arrangements (extension trips, independent airfare, etc.) for optimal coverage. If you would like to increase your travel protection to cover additional arrangements, please call our Customer Relations Team at 313-565-8888 for assistance. 

You can purchase travel protection after completing your online booking journey, however it is best to make your decision at the time of registration.
