Okay gents, I am getting down to the real fine points on this expedition
So, with regards to trip cancellation insurance or basically trip insurance
They ask for a "price of the trip" and I am unsure how to value this
best as I can break it down is this way
Other assorted Fees (gun, transfers, charters etc)
Dip and Pack
Now realistically, if the world stopped, I would be out
Deposit on hunt
various fees, insurance (guns, medevac ets)
Is that the value I insure for
just hard to figure what to insure for and of course what the carrier would pay for
I was thinking that the worst that could possibly happen is that you put a deposit down and fly over there and the PH never shows
Anyway, I sure would value some input and suggestion
Insurance will reimburse the non-refundable prepaid travel arrangements, if you must cancel your trip before departure.

look at the complete details on benefits, conditions, limitations and exclusions.
My favourite part, the small print.
Have fun shopping for insurance.
hmmm....shopping for insurance
wanna guess where that ranks on my list of enjoyable tasks
let's see I think
right behind an ice water enema
and just ahead of dinner with Nancy Pelosi
So is it a tie with an ice water enema given by Nancy Pelosi?

After reading the fine print I think you may be right
Seems like trip insurance is kind of a mugs game
If you check things out as best as you can I think at some point you have to toss it to the wind and trust to luck
The real problem I see is that they ask you to value the trip and then price it based on that and then turn around and in the event of a claim pay only what they have to, after the deductible of course
Think I am going to pass
oh, and yes, an ice water enema give by Nancy Pelosi over dinner is pretty much a direct equivalent
I am at the point where unless I am legally obligated, financially motivated (home insurance) or I need to cover my a$$ Liability wise, I will not stoop to buy insurance.
i have an annual travel policy that covers myself, wife and son. this includes cancellations, medical, personal property, winter sports, and maybe things i cant remember. i think its about the equivalent of us$450.00. this is a lot cheaper here than buying for each trip , or even 1 winter sports holiday. fine print , the main one is they dont pay out if the problem is caused by an act of terrorism...
I totally agree with you!

I could have been taken to a hospital alot quiker in Namibia than when I hunted elk in the Bridger Wilderness of Wyoming.
