ESAC recommends that all study abroad students consider trip cancellation insurance to cover items such as program fees, airline tickets, and travel-related costs in the unlikely event of a withdrawal from a program. Many travel insurance companies exist and each one has their own terms and exclusions. Some offer “cancel for any reason” supplements and might be of particular interest. (Please be aware that this type of coverage often requires that you purchase the coverage within 15 days of the initial deposit.) Even though ESAC does not endorse or recommend any insurance carrier, we have become aware of the following carriers that you might want to research for yourself.

ESAC is not liable for any theft. Example of such insurance is CISI Personal Property and Liability insurance.
