Gold Seal Protection

Should I include Gold Seal Protection when booking my tour with Trafalgar, Insight or Uniworld?

What is Gold Seal Protection?

Most guided holiday companies are interested in their guests only after they reach their destination. But with Trafalgar & Insight Vacations, you get a great deal even before you leave home with their Gold Seal Additional Protection plan for only AU $99 per person (payable at the time of booking). Uniworld offer similar protection for AU $129 per person.
