FAQ's and Additional Information About Travel Insurance Through Yellow Dog

While the fact is that most destination anglers will never need to use travel insurance or a rescue-evac, the reality is that every once in a while, someone will. And – if you’re the one who needs it – you will feel like it is the best investment you’ve ever made!

Trending benefits may include:

  • Cancel for COVID-19 Sickness - Included in Trip Cancellation & Interruption
  • Medical Expense Coverage (including COVID-19) - Included in Emergency Medical
  • Cancel for Any Reason - Available to purchase within 14-days of your initial trip deposit
  • Trip Cancellation - 100% of the Trip Cost
  • Trip Interruption - 150% of the Trip Cost
  • Cancellation due to work reasons - in most states
  • Baggage Delay
  • Missing Connections
  • Trip Delay

If you do have a claim with Travel Guard Insurance:Claims are initiated by simply going online, where you can enter your claim details and upload any supporting documents.

Still not convinced? Here are a few arguments that we hear all-too-often:

MYTH: “I am going on this trip no matter what happens!”FACT: Are you willing to bet and potentially lose the entire cost of the trip if a medical emergency, a hurricane, or another unpredicted event prevents you from traveling?

MYTH: “This coverage is too expensive!”FACT: Travel insurance is a minimal investment compared to the total cost of your trip. The total price for your coverage is usually between  5 – 8% of the total cost of your trip!

MYTH: “I already have insurance coverage.”FACT: This program provides such things as emergency medical assistance, evacuation coverage, and a Sportsmans Hotline to assist you during your trip – much more than most other policies!

 Our hope and expectation is that your destination angling trip will go without a hitch (as 99.9% do). Weigh the situation, however, and decide for yourself whether to purchase a supplemental trip insurance policy.

If you’re ready to purchase a trip policy, you can contact us here at Yellow Dog at 1-888-777-5060, and we will handle everything. You can also call 1-866-877-3241, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. To help Travel Guard Insurance make arrangements, please tell them you have booked your fishing trip through Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures.

Being without travel insurance is kin to standing on Madison Avenue buck naked at five in the afternoon. It sounds interesting … but in reality its not something that makes a whole lot of sense! My wife and I had a trip of a lifetime booked for Alaska that sadly had to be canceled at the last minute. At Yellow Dog’s suggestion, we had insured the trip through Travel Guard. When I contacted Yellow Dog they expressed genuine concern about the family member who was very ill, and then contacted Travel Guard to start the claim process. When I called Travel Guard I spoke to a real person, who was extremely professional and helpful. She also gave me her direct phone number and told me to call with anything. Once the paperwork was filed, Travel Guard let me know exactly how long the review process would take. While the claim process was going on, Yellow Dog also called me periodically to see how things were proceeding and to make sure that everything was taken care of. In a reasonable amount of time, and the claim was paid in full. We’ve since rebooked the Alaska trip, and needless to say, we’ve insured the trip through Travel Guard.” – Don O. (Durango, CO)


When you travel, chances are good that your personal medical insurance won’t bring you home or get you the emergency medical care you need.  An emergency evacuation membership could save your life. Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures works hard to ensure you have a safe and exhilarating experience while on our trips, but unavoidable incidents, unfortunately, do happen. Make sure you’re covered by a premier crisis response provider before you travel.

Additional Information About International Emergency Evacuation Insurance Through Global Rescue

Memberships are all-inclusive and have no deductibles or hidden costs. Memberships are available in short term, single-trip options or annual plans protecting all domestic and international travel. Standard Trip Insurance is an important financial planning instrument but is not designed to provide immediate emergency services. Although some trip insurance programs claim to offer medical evacuations and repatriations, the benefits are written with extensive limits and are designed more for reimbursement than timely emergency action. Would you rather a critical care paramedic backed by Johns Hopkins or an insurance claims adjuster answer the phone during your emergency? Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures strongly recommends purchasing a membership to protect yourself and your family when the next emergency occurs.

Services include: 

  • Medical evacuations to your choice of hospital in your home country
  • Emergency field rescue services from remote areas anywhere in the world
  • Medical consultations by specialists at Johns Hopkins Medicine
  • Deployable paramedics and security personnel to your location
  • Non-medical evacuations for security emergencies or cases of imminent grievous bodily harm
  • 24/7 Operations Center staffed by paramedics and special operations personnel for instant medical and security advice
  • Access to real-time city and country political; medical intelligence

I went to Mt. Everest this year and had Global Rescue insurance. I highly recommend it to anyone. They rescued many people off of Everest after the earthquake – for free. THEY are the go-to people for foreign rescue. Their doctors are the best available.” – Farnum A.
