GETTING THE RIGHT INSURANCE
Let’s face it, these types of trips don’t come risk free. We’re putting ourselves in amazing environments but also environments that carry an element of risk with them. In order to protect yourself adequately you will need a specialist travel insurance that caters for the types of activities you will be undertaking. It is a condition of our agreement that you are covered by adequate travel insurance for your arrangements. Such insurance as a minimum must cover your losses sustained as a result of cancellation, medical issues, and repatriation in the event of death, accident or illness.
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)

If you are climbing / trekking / skiing over 6000m or the trip takes place in the UK then you will need to work with a company like BMC in order to cover you adequately. You can learn more here.
FOR OUR NORTH AMERICAN OR AUSTRALIAN FRIENDS
If you’re coming from North America or Australia then the above insurance providers will probably not cover your requirements. Instead please enquire with Global Rescue as they can help with your requirements.
