Insurance

Medical insurance is required and travel insurance is optional. These are not covered in the cost of your trip. Emmaus does not issue such insurance policies and is not affiliated with any insurance provider. It is the personal responsibility of the traveler to have proper medical coverage for overseas travel.

REQUIRED Medical Insurance:  If you currently have personal medical coverage through your college, work or other institution, it is likely you are covered for overseas medical treatment. Please check your policy and check with your local insurance representative. If you do not have a medical plan that covers you for overseas medical treatment, you must secure such coverage in order to participate on the trip.

OPTIONAL Travel Insurance: If you desire to protect your travel investment against an unforeseen cancellation or a needed emergency return flight home, it is recommended you purchase a travel insurance policy. 

MEDICARE and MEDICAID are not valid for overseas medical coverage. You must secure an alternative health insurance plan.

  • "My trip to Israel was and will probably be the most memorable and thrilling trip of my life! I will never read the Bible the same as I now have a better understanding of the land, the people, the history, the Biblical perspective and so much more! Wink was so knowledgeable and adept at conveying the vast amount of information that he has acquired through his education and experience. After arriving at each of our destinations, we would be reminded to turn on our personal remote wireless headset and it was like having your own personal tour guide in your ear. It was wonderful, as you never had to worry about missing something he said! If you strayed from the group, you could always depend on Cris to help you find your way back. They make a great team! All the accommodations were fantastic and the food was always fresh, plentiful and delicious!"
