Comprehensive Risk Management Plan
For over 30 years Eos StudyTours staff has dealt successfully with the vicissitudes of international travel. We have adapted to a changing world environment: oil price increases, currency devaluations, terrorism, piracy, wars, revolutions, and so on. Even during the fiscal year that included September 11, 2001, when travel virtually shut down for months, royalty checks were sent to every one of our client institutions.
Eos StudyTours provides professional liability coverage of five million dollars ($5,000,000) in the name of your institution. You will receive a certificate indicating that your institution is an “added insured” to this policy.
Eos StudyTours carries zero debt.
Eos StudyTours excels in fiscal management and protection of passenger funds. There is never any co-mingling of passenger funds.
Local tour operators are meticulously selected and each is carefully contracted with all itinerary details specifically outlined.
Participants complete medical forms to confirm they are fit to travel and what (if any) special medical problems or dietary needs they have and what (if any) prescription drugs they require, in case of emergency.
Eos StudyTours staff systematically reviews US State Department Warnings and Advisories.
Medical recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control are provided for each destination to every participant.
“While full liability coverage has been provided to protect the Club, in the 17 years of Explorers Club Travelers, there have been no claims. This is a credit to the careful planning and management of these expeditions.” Don Walsh, Captain USN (ret.), PhD, Honorary President, The Explorers Club. Read More…
The recent revolutions in North Africa and the Middle East, especially Egypt, provide a good example of Eos’s adaptability and fiscal integrity: Eos StudyTours directs all educational travel programs for the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA Tours). In January 2011 we had a group in Cairo and three more groups scheduled to arrive in Cairo when the revolution turned violent in Tahrir Square and a Travel Warning was issued by the U.S. State Department, urging all Americans to depart Egypt immediately and cancel pending plans to enter Egypt. The following testimonial was received from one of our travelers who was on that January 2011 trip.
“I wasn’t expecting a final result quite this soon so the refund is a great surprise. This is great news and recognition of excellent work by your staff at AIA Tours. Please accept my thanks and appreciation to your staff for all the efforts in securing my refund. I would definitely like to book for the Egypt’s Hidden Treasures – January 28 to February 12, 2012” Paul – New South Wales, Australia.
