Worldwide Traveller Protection
Blue Sky Wildlife is an online marketplace, based in the UK that connects the independent eco tourist with reliable local wildlife specialists from over 45 destinations worldwide.
When you’re organising a trip independently, you often have to make payments in advance to local tour operators in order to secure your place, whether that’s for a complete holiday or a day trip. One of the advantages of connecting with the operators through Blue Sky Wildlife is that it can offer protection for any funds you have had to pay up front. This is something that is often not covered by regular travel insurance.
Whether it is a deposit or the full payment, you have the assurance that if circumstances beyond your control force you to change your plans, even as an independent traveller your money will be protected.
Blue Sky Wildlife in collaboration with The Travel Vault has a range of insurances in place to cover the potential insolvency of local wildlife specialists listed on the site where we have agreements in place with those operators (e.g. where the traveller can make a direct payment to reserve a tour online) as well as the company itself should Blue Sky Wildlife cease trading.
Payments made directly to Blue Sky Wildlife, acting on behalf of the local wildlife specialist, whether it’s an initial deposit and subsequent balance payment for a set departure tour already live on the site, or a bespoke wildlife tour agreed directly with the wildlife expert, will all be covered by this arrangement. As long as it is processed and paid via Blue Sky Wildlife, it will be protected.
- Blue Sky Wildlife’s insurance can only cover those wildlife tours booked and paid for via Blue Sky Wildlife. It cannot offer this guarantee for a direct enquiry that translates into a direct payment from the traveller to the local wildlife expert. For more information, please refer to the booking terms.
- Half and Day Trips are not covered by our Worldwide Traveller Protection.
