Remote Lands Introduces Summer Family Travel Experiences in Asia

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 6, 2008

Remote Lands, the world’s foremost luxury travel designer focused exclusively on Asia, is offering extraordinary summer travel opportunities for the most discerning families. The company’s tailor-made excursions for families include water sports, cultural experiences, kite-making and golf in Bali; playing with giant panda cubs, rock climbing and hot air ballooning in China; and camping, rafting and hiking in Bhutan. Remote Lands’ bespoke family journeys begin at around $ 1,000 per person per day, depending on the destination plus international airfare. Services such as private jet charters, helicopters, VIP audiences, and personal staff including chefs, trainers, concierges and other professionals are additional.

Bali: Beaches, Surfing, Kite-making, Golf

Bali is the perfect getaway for families with children of any age with its wealth of cultural highlights, sport facilities and art activities. As kite-making is a proud Balinese tradition, Remote Lands can arrange for clients to make kites with one of the Princes of Bali and his family, culminating in the maiden flight of the massive new kite from the beach at sunset. The kites are made in the shapes of animals and are approximately 10-feet wide and 30-feet long. Guests can visit the Franciscan Orphanage, where children are paired with their Indonesian counterparts for a first-hand learning experience inside the orphanage walls. Bali’s unique geography also presents unparalleled sporting opportunities from golf to surfing. A private surf instructor can be engaged to teach family members how to surf gentle breaks before moving on to bigger waves. Remote Lands arranges for families to stay in some of the island’s most spectacular yet child-friendly private villas with sublime views of the beach and a fulltime staff of personal chefs, butlers, maids, drivers and even a masseuse.

China: Panda Sanctuary, Private Cruises, Village Visits

Families visiting China for the 2008 Beijing Olympics are encouraged to extend their stay to experience some of Remote Lands’ signature, unique experiences. The central Chinese province of Sichuan offers the exciting experience of playing with panda cubs. At the Wolong Panda Reserve, families can meet with a resident biologist who will teach them about this species’ fragile breeding habits and the reserve’s conservation work. Visitors don protective blue suits to enter the cubs’ playground and hold one of these adorable creatures.

In southern China, the mythical landscape of Guangxi Province offers a multitude of cultural and outdoor activities. The picturesque Li River has long inspired poets and painters. Remote Lands recreates this experience for clients by taking them on a private two-hour river cruise accompanied by an expert in the history of Chinese painting, who will expound on the links between this remarkable topography and traditional Chinese art. Adults and children will have individual easels, paper and brushes to paint their versions of this area. Rock climbing is also a popular activity in the area and Guangxi’s majestic limestone formations lend themselves to climbing routes of all grades. Other exhilarating offerings available to clients in southern China include hot-air-ballooning up to high peaks or biking around charming, neighboring villages.

Bhutan: Camping, Hiking, Cycling, Rafting

Families can begin their Bhutanese adventure by white-water rafting in the Punakha Valley where they will select from a variety of routes to ensure the safety and comfort of children of all ages. Guests can spend the night in a private, luxury camp with a personal chef who will prepare authentic regional cuisine to suit any palate. Private archery lessons with top instructors can be arranged for families looking to learn about Bhutan’s national sport. Farmhouse visits are another possibility. Guests are encouraged to learn about and assist farming families with crop cultivation, tending to their livestock and cooking. Remote Lands can arrange for hiking or mountain biking experiences through the valleys to visit with local families in the remote villages of Gogona and Khotokha.

Holidaymakers Could be Paying 500% Over the Odds for Their Travel Insurance, Warns Confused.com


Cardiff, UK (PRWEB) May 16, 2009

Buying insurance from a travel agent, rather than shopping around, could see holidaymakers paying nearly 500% more for their holiday insurance than necessary, says Confused.com.*

According to the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) and Datamonitor, more than one third (40%) of all travel insurance policies were sold by travel agents last year. However, in the same way that customers can shop around to make significant savings on their car and home insurance policies, they can also save money on travel insurance policies.

Steve Williams, head of travel insurance comparison at Confused.com, says: “Even if consumers choose to purchase their holiday through a travel agent, they should not feel obligated to take their travel insurance out with them too.”

“While holiday insurance is a must-have, it makes little sense to pay through the nose for it, especially when shopping around for a better deal is likely to save consumers money. Price comparison sites enable consumers to trawl the market for the most suitable travel insurance policies on offer.”

“Not only is the service quick, easy and comprehensive, but it also enables consumers to directly compare levels of cover. For example, a family of frequent globe-trotters heading off on a three-week safari in South Africa would require a very different policy to a family which goes caravanning in France once a year. Price comparison sites are designed to empower the user and enable them to make educated decisions about the best policies for them, in turn saving them money.”

“Spending just a little bit of extra time finding the best holiday insurance deal will allow you to properly relax and enjoy your trip.”

Families Booking Popular Reunion Cruises during Wave Season Now Qualify for Travel Insureds Group Travel Insurance in 2010


East Hartford, CT (PRWEB) February 11, 2010

Travel Insureds recently updated group travel insurance plans allow coverage for family groups of 10 or more members booking their reunion cruises. The 2010 Wave Season marks the first time family groups can enjoy group travel insurance savings in the booking period when the industry offers some of its best cruise deals of the year.

The first quarter of the year, the traditional Wave Season period when cruise line members of the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) offer some of their most attractive sales, is an opportunity for family groups of 10 or more. They can tap into the growing popularity of family reunion cruises and get a great deal for cruising together in summer, fall or even next winter. Travel Insured International has recently revised and simplified its group travel insurance program into two choices of Travel Insured Lite or Deluxe Group Protection plans. The revision allows family groups of 10 or more members, who previously needed to purchase individual plans, to obtain the savings of Travel Insured group insurance. Remember that group members are required to be traveling to the same destination with the same departure and return dates to be covered on the same Travel Insured group protection plan.

Family travel insurance coverage allows for groups of relatives to take advantage of the popular reunion vacation experience that cruising provides. Dozens of daily onboard cruise activities usually include something for everyone, and supervised childrens programs on many vessels, organized for kids in multiple age groups, allow parents to enjoy adult vacations enhanced by hours of child-sitting services.

Members of a family can enjoy several Travel Insured Group Deluxe or Lite Protection plan options that mean flexibility for both the group and its individuals.

One set of attractive premium rates for the group: there is no difference whether the insurance is inclusive for all members or voluntary for individual members.
Cancel for Any Reason coverage is available as an included purchase for the entire group provided it is purchased within 14 days as an option with either the Lite or Deluxe Protection plan. The Cancel for Any Reason option allows group members to cancel their trip for any reason up to two days prior to scheduled departure and obtain up to a 75% reimbursement of prepaid, non-refundable trip costs.
If a group arranges its trip – and buys either the Group Lite or Group Deluxe Protection plan through a travel agent partner of Travel Insured International it enjoys the added option to purchase Cancel for Any Reason coverage either as an included purchase for the entire group or as an optional purchase by individuals within the group.
Group insurance members can qualify, if they purchase the group insurance plan prior to their final trip payment, for a Pre-Existing Medical Condition waiver. The waiver can provide Trip Cancellation coverage before the trip, or Trip Interruption and Emergency Medical Expense coverage during the trip, for a recurrence of a pre-existing condition that might otherwise be excluded from coverage under the plan.

The Best Group Cruise Insurance for Wave Season

In addition to the above pricing features and options, Travel Insured International group plans offer a range of coverage to deal with unforeseen risks that could potentially disrupt a family or other group cruise vacation.

Travel Insureds Group Deluxe Protection plan includes: Trip Cancellation / Interruption; Trip Delay of up to $ 150 per insured per day; Emergency Accident & Sickness Medical Expenses; Emergency Medical Evacuation; Baggage & Personal Effects plus Baggage Delay; 24-hour Emergency Travel Assistance and up to $ 25,000 of Travel Accident coverage.
Travel Insured Group Lite Protection plan has lower premiums and benefit limits than the Deluxe plan. It includes: Trip Cancellation / Interruption; Trip Delay; Emergency Medical Expenses; Emergency Medical Evacuation; Baggage & Personal Effects plus Baggage Delay, and 24-hour Emergency Travel Assistance.

Pre-Booking Travel Insured Group Plans

There is a pre-booking requirement for Travel Insured Group Plans. Group leaders or agents should visit http://www.travelinsured.com or call 1-800-243-3174 and ask for the Group Administrator. A first step is to apply either for inclusive plan for the whole group or a voluntary plan for individual members. For inclusive, the plan must be included for all passengers and payment included as part of the initial trip deposit. For voluntary, the cost of the protection plan must be invoiced as a separate line item with an option to decline the protection plan by subtracting the plan cost from the total package price.

Insured participants must insure the full prepaid cost of the trip. Premiums, which are net price, must be paid along with the group manifest by the 15th of the month prior to trip departure, and both manifests and credit card payment by Visa or Master Card, can be made online. Travel agency checks are also accepted. Once premium payment has been received the travel agent or group leader will receive electronically a Description of Coverage to be distributed to group members.

Remember to take along the best group cruise insurance for Wave Season, either Travel Insured Group Deluxe or Group Lite Protection with optional Cancel for Any Reason. Enjoy your reunion cruise!
