Whether traveling for business, pleasure, or educational purposes, many travelers could benefit from the peace of mind that comes with purchasing travel insurance to help provide the security they need. This travel accident protection program responds to medical emergencies for travelers outside of their home country or country of permanent residence by providing accident and sickness benefits and valuable travel assistance services.

Coverage is only effective while traveling outside of the country from which you hold a passport. Sometimes travel outside of your home country can involve increased risks, especially if you need to travel to areas of political unrest and conflict.

*The UC Personal Travel Insurance Program is being offered as an option for employees, students, retirees, alumni and their traveling companions to purchase for their own for personal travel. This program is not affiliated with any University-provided employee benefit and the University makes no recommendation concerning it. As with any commercial travel insurance you purchase, the traveler is responsible for paying the premium, arranging for any travel assistance services, and resolving any claim or coverage issues directly with the insurance carrier.
