Travel Insurance

While the AIG-World Risk insurance information detailed above provides extensive medical-related coverage, this policy is not a travel insurance program and does not include items traditionally found within standard travel insurance such as trip cancellation/interruption and broad coverage for lost/stolen luggage.

Whitworth University does not have a sponsored travel insurance partner and encourages all students and families to independently determine their need for travel insurance coverage.
