Learning how to backpack safely can be a daunting experience, so WBA is going to do everything it can to remove the roadblocks that stand between you and the great outdoors. We will provide all the gear needed for your trip, food, drinks and snacks, and all the knowledge you’ll need to hike like a pro.
World’s Best Adventures is pleased to offer WBA Trip Insurance for all adventures we offer. With it you can protect yourself financially and have some peace of mind if your travel plans get interrupted.
Insurance is a flat non-refundable $100-$125 per trip, per traveler, depending on what trip you are booking.
TRIP CANCELLATION BENEFITS:
Your trip insurance policy allows for a 100 percent refund of your WBA trip based on the following situations:
- Serious, disabling illness that prohibits travel for either you or your travel partner(s)– You must provide a doctor’s note along with your claim. Pre-existing and mental health conditions are NOT covered.
- If your trip is canceled due to unforeseeable natural events –
Hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, widespread flooding, widespread fire, winter storms (must have purchased insurance 30 days of trip to be eligible for refund)
WBA Trip Insurance will determine the date an event becomes “known and foreseeable,” thus not covered by your insurance plan. Contact your provider for details.
- If you are required to serve on jury duty during the scheduled trip. Must provide copy of summons.
- Urgent health alerts as issued by the World Health Organization and/or Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, as well as the local and/or state governments of the destination.
- World’s Best Adventures goes out of business or otherwise can’t conduct the scheduled trip.
Cancellation due to known, foreseeable, or expected events, government prohibitions, warnings, or travel advisories, or fear of attending an event are generally not covered. However, until further notice, we are currently accommodating claims for Event Cancellation and Interruption if a customer becomes ill with COVID-19 or if a trip must be canceled due to destination regulations/health concerns.
WBA's backpacking adventures are open to anyone age 21 or older! As long as you feel capable of hiking between 20 to 30 miles over four days carrying a 30–40-pound backpack, you'll be good to go!
Our trips are designed on a scale of Easy, Medium, and Difficult and our past customers have confirmed that these ratings are accurate.
Customers can receive a full refund or credit towards a future adventure 30 days or more in advance of their trip’s departure. Due to the logistics and planning involved in our adventures, no refund will be issued within 30 days of the trip’s departure.
Purchasing our optional trip insurance allows cancelation up to the trip’s departure day.
Our trips are rain or shine, but World’s Best Adventures reserves the right to postpone or reschedule trips in the event of emergency weather scenarios.
