Travel Insurance

Under booking condition number 13, Birdfinders insists upon adequate travel insurance being taken out by participants on all overseas tours. When the final balance is sent, we do need to have a photocopy of the policy document to ensure that the cover is adequate. Birdfinders no loner offers travel insurance.

Please note that travel insurance is often inadequate to cover specialist optical equipment such as binoculars, telescopes and cameras.

All the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. Please see our booking conditions for further information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to:
