Travel insurance is covered as a benefit of the University's Travel and Expense Credit Card. No additional paperwork is required to activate insurance coverage using the card.  However, credit card insurance DOES NOT cover trip cancellation or coverage for guest travelers. These are additional costs that can be purchased with Maritime Travel.

More information on travel insurance coverage with the Corporate Credit Card is available on the Corporate Card Program Handbook.
