Travel Protection

Travel Protection Be Prepared for the Unexpected

At French America Line, we know that sometimes the unexpected can disrupt your vacation such as an illness that might result in cancelling your trip or require timely transportation to the nearest hospital. We recommend you purchase the French America Line Travel Protection Plan which includes coverage for Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Medical and Baggage benefits. The exclusion for pre-existing conditions will be waived provided your payment for this plan is received within 21 days of the date your initial payment or deposit for your trip is paid, and you are not disabled from travel at the time your plan payment is paid.
