*From MCI – Hello Houston Masterworks Chorus Tour Participants,If you are wanting to arrange your own flights and change to the land-only tour cost, then we must receive your signed land-only form before we can make these changes to your account.

You can access the land-only form by logging into the tour portal. https://portal.musiccelebrations.com/

Once you have uploaded your signed form, please allow us a few days to update your account.

These forms are not due until the end of July, so you do have time to make your decision. However, we do recommend to purchase your flights sooner than later to receive the best fares (if you are wanting to arrange your own flights).

Insurance FAQ’s

MCI provides “standard” level of coverage at no cost to the traveler.  The coverage amount is only $600.

Traveler has the option of purchasing “premium” coverage and there are 2 option for this coverage.

A         Traveler chooses the amount of coverage he/she wants.  This coverage covers trip cancellation for the specific reasons listed in the policy.  They are the usual reasons, illness, death (both apply to the traveler and family members of traveler), work related, natural disasters, etc.  Standard reasons for all travel insurance policies.

B         This policy covers what is call “Cancel For Any Reason” (CFAR) and is exactly what is says.  If you decide you simply don’t want to go it pays the coverage amount you’ve purchased.  It is more expensive than Premium A coverage.

 

Both A & B premiums are determined on the dollar amount the traveler wishes to cover.

Also, according to the documents from MCI, pre-existing medical conditions have been waived.  This is a big plus.  This can be important since if the traveler has had any change in an existing medical condition, including a change in the dosage of medications being taken, within 60 days prior to the purchase of the policy, then the cancellation for illness clause is not applicable and there is no coverage.  MCI has waived this.

Contact Carol Mallett for a quote if you’d like to extend your trip on either side.
