TRAVEL INSURANCE ADVICE
Here are a handful of companies we recommend to arrange your comprehensive insurance for your upcoming trip. Your insurance must cover:
- Each country you visit on the trip
- The specific activity required (Trekking, mountaineering, skiing, etc.)
- The correct altitude (You must be covered up to the highest point on the trip for air rescue)
- Lost baggage (if your bag is lost, your trip is in jeopardy so you must be able to make last minute purchases)
