A Word On Insurance
Insurance that provides cover for emergency repatriation in case of a medical emergency is compulsory for all expeditions. At the start of the expedition, we will request your insurance policy details and the corresponding 24 hour emergency contact number in case our team leader or other operational staff need to use them in the event of an emergency.
As a guideline, you will want to ensure that your policy covers you for emergency medical repatriation (to your home country) including any associated expenses abroad.
Insurance policies vary depending on your home country but whatever insurance provider you opt for, it is your responsibility to ensure that it covers you for every aspect of the trip you are joining (dates, activities, geographies etc) as well as the altitudes at which you will be trekking (usually up to between 4 - 5000m). If in doubt about whether the policy you are considering offers adequate protection for a specific trip, please let us know and we can try and point you in the right direction.
