Travel Resources

Booking your trip is only part of planning a great vacation. At REI Adventures, we want to make sure that all your travel needs are covered. We recommend the following important travel resources.

Travel Insurance

Each season a handful of clients must cancel their trips at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances such as flight delays or cancellations, illness or injury. Many of our trips visit remote areas where the nearest medical facility could be many miles away. In the event that you or your loved ones become ill or injured, we highly recommend the purchase of travel insurance. You'll have the peace of mind that your investment is insured and that traveler assistance will be available at your destination should you need it.

REI Adventures has partnered with MH Ross and created custom plans that meet the needs of the active adventure traveler. MH Ross provides industry leading coverage that includes trip cancellation/trip interruption, emergency medical evacuation and treatment, and protection for your flights and baggage.

Please note that if you would like to take advantage of the pre-existing condition waiver, it is valid only if your protection plan is purchased within 21 days from the date your initial reservation is made. Certain restrictions apply.

To purchase insurance or to obtain more information, visit MH Ross Travel Insurance online or call MH Ross directly at 1-800-423-3632 for detailed plan information. Refer to plan R775 so they know that you are traveling with REI Adventures and the Customer Service Staff will help you purchase the insurance policy that is right for you.

Tourist Visas & Passports

Many countries in which REI Adventures runs trips require visitor visas for entry. We recommend using VisaCentral, the leading online resource for visa and passport needs. Recognized for their expeditious and secure handling of travel documentation, they solve visa and passport issues so you can travel with confidence.

For more information on specific visa requirements and to download applications, see the VisaCentral/REI Adventures Page.

The requirements stated on the VisaCentral website pertain to U.S. passport holders only. If you hold a non-U.S. passport, please contact VisaCentral for details. Residents of Canada may visit the VisaCentral/CIBT Canada website or contact them by telephone at 1-888-665-9956.

Foreign entry requirements pertaining to all travelers are subject to change at any time without advance notice.

Feel free to call us if you have any questions or concerns, or call the VisaCentral customer support desk at 1-866-788-1100.
