Travel brings a world of unfamiliar experiences. More often than not, you will be pleasantly surprised by becoming more through your travel experience. Travel insurance can help give you the confidence to make the most of your journey.

We encourage all Beyond Group Travel clients to purchase travel insurance for their travel. We offer Allianz Global Assistance Travel Insurance* for all of your insurance needs.

Keep in mind that to secure coverage for pre-existing medical conditions*, the insurance industry requires your purchase to be within fourteen (14) days of your deposit (Product not available to residents of all states).

If you have question or wish to purchase trip insurance, please contact our office at (713) 954-4825.

*Terms, conditions, and exclusions apply. Insurance benefits underwritten by either BCS Insurance Company or Jefferson Insurance Company, depending on insured's state of residence. AGA Service Company is the licensed producer and administrator of these plans.

Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Members enter the United States through automatic kiosks at select airports.

At airports, program members proceed to Global Entry kiosks, present their machine-readable passport or U.S. permanent resident card, place their fingerprints on the scanner for fingerprint verification and complete a customs declaration. The kiosk issues the traveler a transaction receipt and directs the traveler to baggage claim and the exit.

Travelers must be pre-approved for the Global Entry program. All applicants undergo a rigorous background check and in-person interview before enrollment.

While Global Entry’s goal is to speed travelers through the process, members may still be selected for further examination when entering the United States. Any violation of the program’s terms and conditions will result in the appropriate enforcement action and termination of the traveler’s membership privileges.

In many countries, vaccine preventable diseases are still common even though they have been eradicated from North America. Without vaccines, epidemics of many preventable diseases will return, resulting in increased illness and death and a lower quality of life. 

Vaccination before travel is imperative to ensure global public health and to help individuals stay healthy during and after their travels.
