Travel Insurance

Since the tour insurance compensation in many countries is very few and has the strict rule. And the items in the contract of these countries’ insurance companies have been not suitable to foreigners. In fact nearly most of foreign tourists can’t get compensation from these countries’ insurance companies.

Therefore from 2012 we don’t buy insurance for our clients any more. We cut down the cost and don’t include it in the quotation. We suggest you buy necessary travel insurance from insurance company in your country, which could give you high money compensation, since Novaland Tours not able to take any responsibility for the traveler's financial losses or hardships as a result of the traveler's failure to purchase adequate or any travel insurance, as well as the traveler's personal injuries, harm, property losses, or damages that occur during travel and tourism activities due to circumstances beyond Novaland Tours' control.
