TOUR AND EXPEDITION TRAVEL INSURANCE
|At Compass Expeditions we work hard to make sure that your motorcycle tour runs smoothly and safely. Your welfare is of primary concern to us and we know that we cannot control every situation on the road or while you are traveling.
Accidents happen, luggage is lost and tour or flight cancellations can occur, so it is our policy that all participants of Compass Expeditions tours have an appropriate level of travel insurance to cover the unforeseen. This is not only compulsory when joining a Compass Expeditions motorcycle tour, but it makes sense.
|We have sourced a number of companies that will provide you coverage in the event of an accident and/or other losses, depending on the policy selected and better still will give all Compass Expeditions customers a 10% discount off the advertised rates when purchasing through the our website, (this offer is not available over the phone). Compass Expeditions does not endorse, recommend or guarantee payment in the event of a claim from any of the insurers mentioned. We do know that they will offer a policy for clients riding a motorcycle OVER 250cc (including our bikes). This is a critical point to ensure when purchasing a policy. Compass Expeditions are offering this information as a service only to ensure all our clients are properly protected.|
Aussie Travel Cover:
Its hard to believe how much we fitted into eight days – criss-crossing the Mekong, Buddhist blessing, shooting AK47’s, drinks at the Australian Embassy, walking through Angkor Watt, visiting the S21 Genocide Museum, dodging water buffalo and Brahman on lonely tracks, lunch overlooking Laos, eating a spider, attending a silk commune, and meeting Cambodian families at roadside stalls, as well as many beers, meals and motorbike experiences with mates.
Well I made it back safely and I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you all at Compass Expeditions for putting together an excellent experience for my husband and myself.
You were right when you said we would be in good hands with Zeman. He was a fantastic coordinator, tour leader, mentor and friend throughout the 2 week experience. His wealth of knowledge of Cambodia is invaluable and you are fortunate enough to have captured this.
As Cambodia is slowly evolving into a full scale Western Asian society, I am pleased to have been able to see it before it becomes totally commercialised and turned into another Vietnam or Thailand. The local people in both the country and city are still so friendly, helpful and happy. It was a pleasure to be a part of that life if only for a couple of weeks.
I am pleased to say all the arrangements worked like clockwork for Dan (David) and myself, including pre and post accommodation, and I would like to thank you for this. Furthermore, the arrangements whilst on tour were fantastic. Between Zeman, Tim and Mac Mac, our life just consisted of staying up right on the bikes knowing full well that at the end of the day there would be a cold beer waiting.
I hope you continue with off road tours, with considerations to expand to other cities as I believe there is an interest out there. Rest assure we will certainly sing your praises.
Again thank you guys for all your input, making our holiday an unforgettable experience.
Suzanne and Dan, Australia
