Travel Insurance

Depending on your needs and trip, you may wish to consider additional travel insurance. Tufts University does not endorse any of these providers, the list is intended to initiate the search process.

Why Travel Insurance?

While you should always ensure that your medical expenses are covered while traveling (which you can easily do by registering your trip with the Tufts Travel Registry, as registration enrolls you in the Tufts Emergency Travel Medical Coverage), you may wish to add additional benefits, such as:
  • Trip Cancellation
  • Trip Interruption
  • Lost Baggage
  • Personal Liability insurance
  • Personal Property insurance
  • Legal Expenses

Note: Not all travel insurance providers offer all of these benefits and exclusions may vary. Be sure to talk about your coverage needs.

Travelex Insurance - Trip Cancellation upgrade option
Travel Insured - Trip Cancellation/Interruption upgrade/Emergency Medical Assistance
Allianz  - Trip Cancellation and Travel Insurance

Please note that Travel/Flight Insurance is not a reimbursable expense under Tufts' Travel Expense Policy (
