TRAVEL INSURANCE

Travel Protection Insurance for your China trip is strongly recommended. Following is a summary of our comprehensive travel insurance plan that we provide for our passengers for only $139 per person.

This plan is available regardless of your age and tour cost. Pre-existing medical conditions are covered if the premium for the coverage is received by Tour Beyond (dba: China Spree), within 14 days of the initial deposit/payment for your Trip (provided you are not already disabled from travel when you pay your premium).

Travel Protection Insurance may be purchased any time by final payment due date and is non-refundable, but pre-existing conditions exclusion is not applicable if purchased more than fourteen (14) days after deposit is paid. After we have received your final payment, our special travel insurance package will not be available. This coverage includes the following features:

Trip Cancellation & Interruption: Up to trip cost. Covers non-refundable payments or deposits up to the air and land cost for cancellation prior to departure or trip interruption after departure, in the event of covered sickness, injury or death.

Pre-existing Medical Condition Exclusion Waiver: The pre-existing conditions exclusion will be waived provided your premium is received by Tour Beyond, Inc. (dba: China Spree) within 14 days of the initial deposit/payment for your trip, and you are not disabled from travel at the time you pay your premium. We recommend purchasing travel insurance at the time of reservation so as to take full advantage of this excellent benefit.

Medical Expense & Emergency Assistance Benefits Could Be a Real Lifesaver! If you have a serious illness or injury, the last thing you want to worry about is getting the care you need. Our comprehensive Travel Protection Plan gives you peace of mind with benefits that cover, up to $25,000, everything from medical expenses (incurred within one year of a sickness or injury that began during your trip).

Emergency Evacuation is crucial when you are seriously ill and need to be evacuated for medical treatment. Our comprehensive insurance plan provides up to $50,000 coverage for special transportation (such as an air ambulance) required for medical reasons.

Accidental Death and Dismemberment: Up to $ 25,000. These benefits are paid if loss occurs within 365 days of covered injury that occurs while on your trip.

Baggage & Personal Effects: It’s a traveler’s nightmare. You arrive at your destination, but your baggage has disappeared. Or has been stolen or damaged. What do you do? If you’re protected by our comprehensive protection plan, you’ll be reimbursed up to $1,500 to replace or repair your lost or damaged luggage and personal articles.

Baggage Delay: Our Travel Protection Plan reimburses you up to $300 to help cover the cost of clothing, toiletries and/or personal items if your baggage is delayed for more than 24 hours or more while you are on your trip.

Travel Delay: Up to $150 per day for a maximum of $750. Reimburses for additional expenses incurred by you for hotel accommodations, meals, telephone calls and local transportation if you are delayed 12 hours or more. We will not pay benefits for expenses incurred after travel becomes possible.


24-Hour Hotline Assistance: 24 hour hotline to provide help and legal assistance for medical and legal emergencies.
