What is required to enter Tahiti (French Polynesia)?
To visit Tahiti, all international travelers must fill and present an ETIS form and sign a Sworn Statement that must be submitted upon entering the territory. In addition, they are required to pay a flat fee to cover costs associated with Covid-19 health measures. This fee covers administrative and sanitary requests, ETIS procedures, arrival tests, and tracing while visiting Tahiti.
Why should you buy travel insurance to visit Tahiti?
Even though international travelers are required to pay a fee associated with COVID-19 health measures, we at Trawick International recommend that all travelers should also purchase additional travel insurance. We believe a trip cancellation policy that does not exclude costs associated with COVID-19 would be best to provide extra protection to you if you were to catch COVID-19 in Tahiti. Our trip cancellation plans also offer benefits for trip delay and trip interruption and on select plans, we offer the Cancel for Any Reason option.
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 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 US state).
How much does travel insurance cost?
Travel insurance cost is based on your age, trip cost, length of trip, and other factors. When purchasing a plan with trip cancellation, you should include all non-refundable travel expenses so you can recover the investment in the event your trip is canceled or interrupted.
When should I buy travel insurance?
Suppose you are interested in adding the CFAR benefit to your trip cancellation plan. In that case, you must purchase your insurance for 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.
