Celtic Heart Tours strongly recommends that all our Ireland tour group clients purchase travel insurance.
Travel is an investment, and needs to be protected as such. We are not licensed to sell travel insurance, but we recommend you talk to a travel agent who can guide you through it.
We asked home-based travel agent Joy Lingerfelt for her advice and she provided us with the following helpful information.
Joy Tells Why You Need Travel Insurance for Our Women-only Tours
The excitement of travel. It’s the hustle and bustle of the planning, the investments of time and expense, the packing, and all the arrangements for a trip you have wanted to take for years! And though a vacation can often bring joy – busy airport terminals, cancelled /delayed flights, and medical emergencies do not. So, before you venture out to see the world, or your loved ones, friends and family, don’t forget to include a travel insurance plan to help keep from seeing your mood (and wallet) turn flat.
A travel insurance plan can cover you:
- if you or a loved one unexpectedly becomes ill or injured, forcing you to cancel your travel plans
- if foul weather, volcanoes, storms make it impossible to venture out (or continue) on your trip
- if inclement weather delays or cancels your flight, a frequent problem during busy travel seasons
- if you’re suddenly required to stay home and work during your scheduled vacation.
Plus, most travel insurance plans through Travel Guard include 24/7 travel assistance services to rebook hotels and flights; coordinate emergency medical assistance and much more. Help eliminate the hassle involved with travel today. Include a travel insurance plan for wherever your travels take you and make the most of your trip!
We understand that many of you have some travel protection with the credit cards that you use, but most of the reasons we list above are not covered in those plans, especially in international travel.

But How Much Will it Cost Me?
Let’s put it this way: how much is your lost luggage or unexpected trip interruption worth to you?
Travel insurance costs vary depending on factors such as age, type of trip and type of coverage you opt for, but for our tours it should run between *$100 and $150. That’s a small price to pay for peace of mind!
