Travel insurance

Santorini Walking Tours strongly recommends the purchase of a comprehensive travel insurance plan. We suggest that this policy covers as a minimum private medical cover for the entire duration of your trip including 24 hour emergency cover with a repatriation service. Please ensure that you purchase additional cover for activities or excursions not covered by the standard policy.  You are advised also to take out insurance to cover losses in the event of “force majeure” as we specifically exclude our own responsibility to you in such events. Please note that insurance provided by credit card companies, household policies and banks often has limited cover. Please check at the time of booking that the cover provided by such a policy complies with this condition.
