SWAT -Summer,Winter Adventure Travel markets ski trips, backpacking trips. We purchased trip plus their insurance for my son to go on their Utah ski trip. Their chaparones are newly graduated frat boys.
We ended up having to Medically evacuate my son at our expense. SWAT called me two days later when the trip was ending to say that my son was missing did I know where he was? Yeah, he is in the hospital!
They lost all of his equipment and luggage, and worst of all, did not put on the insurance policy that we payed for. The travel insurance company knew SWAT but had no record of the policy SWAT sold us.
Their business office is run like a frat house -leave messages they won't ever return. Thank goodness that I payed with my AMEX card when we purchased the trip. I got my money refunded when SWAT would not return AMEX's inquires.
Do not send your son or daughter on one of SWAT's trips!
