When you travel in China with us, you are offered a complementary travel insurance program by China Expedition Tours which is known as Travel Agencies' Liability Insurance, a policy regulated by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. This insurance covers any unexpected accidents occurring during the tour activities arranged by a travel agency with maximum coverage of RMB 200,000/person. However, it does not cover any other physical problems occurring outside the guided tour period or caused by clients themselves rather than accidents caused by tour activity while in China.
