IRELAND 2022


MARCHING ILLINI TRIP TO IRELAND | MARCH 2022

We are pleased to announce that the Marching Illini has been invited to the beautiful country of Ireland for the 9th time in university history. Below you will find information pertaining to this trip. Please see below – Instructions for Creating your Individual Payment System & Account – in order to register if you are planning to attend. If you are uncertain about attending, registration will remain open until early August of 2021 when the 2021 version of the Marching Illini is chosen. This trip is not required although we hope that all members have the opportunity to attend. This is truly an experience of a lifetime that cannot be duplicated on a personal vacation or trip.

REQUIRED UNIVERSITY INSURANCE FOR STUDENTS

  • Since our last trip to Ireland, the University of Illinois now requires each student to purchase university insurance for international travel. This insurance is primarily focused on health and not cancel for any reason (CFAR). More information will be shared as the university prepares information for our members. This required insurance is $75

OPTIONAL CANCEL FOR ANY REASON INSURANCE FOR STUDENTS, FAMILY & FRIENDS

  • There will be no refund through the University if the international travel ban continues. It is strongly encouraged to purchase CFAR (Cancel for any reason) insurance through Bob Rogers due to this uncertainty. This must be done 14 days from registration. Bob Rogers Travel is offering this travel protection plan with two choices – one does not include CFAR insurance and the other does – $94 vs $141. Read the following information carefully.
  • The Cancel for Any Reason insurance allows you to cancel for any reason and coverage is up to 75% of the nonrefundable trip cost and must be 48 hours or more before the scheduled trip departure
  • This travel protection plan must be purchased within 14 days of your initial trip deposit in order to be eligible for CFAR coverage
  • Travel Protection Plan Document
