GTC arranges group travel only. That means our insurance policies have been specially designed to take care of the insurance needs of groups and their group leaders. Insurance is offered at an additional cost for all tours (except UK, when basic insurance is included as standard). As many or as few members of your group as required may purchase cover from us.
