Is travel insurance required to enter St. Maarten?
According to the St. Maarten Tourist Bureau, St. Maarten is no longer requiring travelers to complete the Electronic Health Authorization System (EHAS) Application. In addition, there are no Covid-19 Entry Requirements.
Why should you buy additional travel insurance to visit St. Maarten?
Trawick International recommends all travelers purchase additional travel insurance. Our Trip Cancellations plans offer benefits for trip delay and trip interruption and on select plans, we offer the Cancel for Any Reason Benefit. These additional benefits could provide vital protection if something unforeseen were to happen while traveling to St. Maarten.
Do the trip cancellation plans from Trawick International cover COVID-19?
Yes, most of our plans treat COVID-19 like any other sickness.
Optional Cancel for Any Reason coverage:
On select trip cancellation plans, Trawick International offers the Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) benefit that provides reimbursement for 75% of the prepaid, nonrefundable, forfeited payments you paid for your trip if you cancel your trip for any reason not otherwise covered by this policy - like border closures or travel bans. This coverage MUST be purchased with the initial policy and within 21 days of the initial trip deposit date, and the full, nonrefundable trip cost is insured. (This benefit is not available in every state).
How much does travel insurance cost?
Several factors determine the cost of travel insurance, such as your age, trip cost, length of trip, and other factors. When purchasing a plan with trip cancellation, we recommend that you include all non-refundable travel expenses so you can recover the investment in the event your trip is canceled or interrupted. By bundling all of your trip costs into one policy, you will be able to obtain the most coverage possible for your trip.
When should you buy travel insurance?
To maximize your benefits, you should insure your trip within 21 days of the initial trip deposit date and include all prepaid, nonrefundable trip costs. You can still purchase travel insurance after 21 days, but you may not be eligible for time-sensitive benefits such as CFAR or Financial Default.
