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
  • Terrorism

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.
