Q: Does purchasing a Refundable Booking mean I do not need to purchase travel insurance?

NO! Travel insurance is mandatory for all bookings.

It is similar to having the option when purchasing a flight to make it refundable under certain conditions. A Refundable Booking is especially helpful if you need to cancel last minute and Adventure Out Loud cannot offer a refund per our cancellation policy, outlined under section 22 of our terms and conditions
