Make sure you are covered for medical emergencies
Rhino Africa provides complimentary financial protection. This provides Rhino Africa, and consequently our clients, with protection against financial loss as a result of insolvency by our suppliers (lodges, hotels, guest houses, cruise liners, tour operators and transport providers excluding international air travel). It is included in each booking completely free of charge. The financial protection covers all aspects of your travel package booked with Rhino Africa. We are the only tour operator in Africa to offer this protection and you do not get this protection if you book direct.
It is important to note that the financial protection is NOT travel insurance. You will have to make sure that you are appropriately covered against cancellation fees and curtailment costs in case of medical reasons preventing you from travelling. In addition you need to make sure that you have adequate medical cover in case of emergency. Sufficient insurance cover is absolutely essential during your holiday. Most importantly, cover against cancellation fees charged by our suppliers should be considered a must, as you need to be protected against financial loss should you or your family members not be able to travel due to medical reasons.
At Rhino Africa we accpept credit card payments and do not add a surcharge. Most major credit cards will include travel insurance if the card is used for payment. You should however check with your card issuer in this regard. Additional cover can be booked through various online travel insurance sites in your country of residence.
