Insight statement
regarding COVID-19

Updated May 28, 2020

Whether you’re a past, current, or future participant, we want to thank you for sticking with us through this time of uncertainty. The last few months have been difficult for the travel industry, for our university partners, and for our NGO/Social Enterprise partners. We appreciate your patience and support and can’t wait to be exploring again soon.

Give us a call today to discuss your Intern-Study-Travel plans for 2020 or 2021.


We understand that times are still uncertain and we want to put your mind at ease. To help, Insight has added (at no additional cost to the student) a new insurance policy to all Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 programs. 

This policy includes 'Trip Interruption' and ‘Cancel for Any Reason’ coverage so that your trip is protected and students are able to cancel up to 7 days before their scheduled departure. Students are still required to purchase their own travel medical insurance in the event they become sick while abroad.

A Note to Fall 2020 Students

As the world works to re-open, circumstances on the ground in the countries we operate in are changing quickly. At this time, we are planning for programs starting in Fall 2020 to continue as scheduled. 

For students registered in a program who have experienced recent financial difficulties,  please reach out to our Finance Team. We are here to help, and are happy to set-up custom plans that work for you, ensuring you’re able to experience your semester abroad. 

As always, all students have the option to defer their participation to a later semester if they would prefer to delay their term abroad.
