Importance of Registering

Accurate information on your travel plans is needed to deliver the services and protections the travel insurance policy offers. Your registration information serves to verify eligibility to the insurance company if you submit a claim, use any benefit, or request travel assistance services. Registering travel will also help direct aid to travelers in the event of natural disaster or major political event in their travel destination.

All travel booked using UC Travel Center on Conexxus will automatically be registered. Employees using other booking methods must register their travel plans prior to departure: Register online at uctrips-insurance.org. Upon registration, employees will receive confirmation of coverage and the toll-free number to call in an emergency.

Registration for iJet

Once you register for travel insurance, you will be prompted to provide some additional information in order to receive travel alerts and an ijet trip Intelligence Briefing. iJet registrants will receive security and emergency alerts/instructions while traveling. This will enable iJet and UC Merced to contact you should an emergency situation unfold that may affect you or your fellow travelers.

If you do not receive a welcome email from iJet automatically, click HERE to register directly in the ijet system.
