Travel Insurance Coverage

Revised:    July 5, 2011

By ordering airline tickets through the BYU-Idaho Travel Office, travelers will automatically receive, at no cost to themselves or the University, $500,000 for accidental travel insurance (AD&D), $1,250 for baggage reimbursement, $1,000 for hotel burglary, and $10,000 for emergency evacuation. All personnel traveling on University business (including students) fall under the travel insurance policy. Employees who choose to purchase additional travel insurance will do so at their own expense. (Note: When traveling on a no-charge ticket, the corporate credit card company insurance will not be in effect.)

Travelers using privately owned vehicles must have a personal insurance policy in force which provides the following coverage for the vehicle:

    • $100,000 for personal injury to, or death of, one person
    • $300,000 for injury to, or death of, two or more persons in one accident
    • $100,000 for property damage

Travelers using rental vehicles under the Hertz or National contracts within the United States should not sign up for the rental company's insurance. The insurance is included in the contract rate. However, insurance should be purchased for any rental vehicles outside of the United States.
