GMJF Travel Insurance Policies

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation does not currently, and will not in the future, provide any medical insurance coverage while on the Mission. Any medical insurance coverage desired must be purchased for the Mission on own.

GMJF does not provide trip cancellation insurance for Mission participants and any coverage that is desired must be purchased for the Mission on your own.

Additional travel insurance could cover items such as reimbursement for trip delay, missed connections, sickness and/or accident medical expenses, lost baggage, personal effects, baggage delay, etc.

Travel Insurance: There is no trip cancellation insurance covered by JFNA/GMJF. Note: JFNA/GMJF highly recommends that all mission participants review their own personal insurance coverage needs with their insurance advisors to determine if additional travel insurance is required. This would cover items such as reimbursement for trip delay, missed connections, sickness and/or accident medical expenses, lost baggage, personal effects, baggage delay, etc.

Here are some providers should you wish to purchase additional insurance. Inclusion on this list should not be construed as an endorsement by GMJF.
