30 Dec DO I NEED A TRAVEL INSURANCE?
Travel Insurance is a necessary requirement to participate on this trip. Climbers are strongly recommended to obtain their travel insurance immediately after the booking. Since trip-deposits are non-refundable and balance payments are only partially refundable, therefore it is prudent for you to protect your investment against trip cancellation, interruption, delays and unforeseeable expenses.
A standard travel insurance should provide you coverage for:
- Trip cancellation
- Trip interruption
- Missed connection
- Travel delay
- Baggage delay and personal items lost
- Hurricane and weather
- Employment layoff
- Pre-existing medical conditions
- Emergency medical
- Medical evacuation and repatriation
- Financial default
Your travel insurance must cover high altitude trekking up to 6,000 metres to be eligible for rescue by Kilimanjaro Search and Rescue (SAR) – a private company which provides medical support and helicopter evacuation.
