INDEPENDENT STANDARD TOUR GUIDE (ISTG) COVERAGE

If you are a 1099 independent contractor and not an employee of the tour operator, there is a good chance that you could be on your own in the event of a problem, mistake or mishap. 

The possibility exists that both the company that hired you as well as an individual tour participant can pursue you legally for the problem, they believe that you have created.

 Therefore, being insured is important.

The following are some examples of situations which could likely result in a claim against the tour guide.

  • The injury of death of a tour participant
  • A missed or delayed arrival at a destination, or deviation from the planned itinerary that results in additional costs for the tour participants or tour operator
  • Alleged failure and negligence in performing your services

This policy, in most cases, may cost less than hiring an attorney for just one hour, to help you through an unfortunate situation.

  • $450 annually: $500,000 per occurrence/ aggregate ($500 deductible)
  • $595 annually: $1,000,000 per occurrence/aggregate ($500 deductible)
