Foreign Travel Program

Travel to foreign countries brings with it a number of challenges, including unfamiliar laws, languages and customs, corrupt officials, and crime.  Some risks are greater than others and will vary based on the destination country, the number and age of travelers, the types of activities they will be participating in, and length of stay, among other things. The Authority’s liability program does not cover members for legal expenses and lawsuits brought in overseas courts. To offset those risks, a foreign liability policy is available to protect all members when foreign trips are reported to the Authority prior to travel using the Foreign Travel Log.
