Travel insurance is required to participate on any of our Kilimanjaro trips. 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. Standard travel insurance provides coverage for:
Baggage delay and personal items lost
Hurricane and weather
Pre-existing medical conditions
Medical evacuation and repatriation
At a minimum, the insurance should protect you against trip cancellation and trip interruption, should you need to cancel your trip due to circumstances such as training injuries or sickness or emergencies. Ideally, insurance should cover high altitude trekking (not to be confused with "mountaineering" or "mountain climbing" which most insurance will not cover) up to and all medical and repatriation costs.
For our customers residing in the USA, we recommend that you obtain Travel Guard's Silver, Gold or Platinum plans, which provide coverage for #highaltitude #trekking
, trip cancellation, interruption and delay; lost, stolen and damaged baggage; medical expenses and #emergencymedical
evacuation; and luggage delay, for a low cost.
For our international customers, we recommend that you obtain travel insurance through #WorldNomads
Climbers are strongly advised to obtain travel insurance immediately after booking their trip. Travel Guard insurance covers trip cancellation due to pre-existing conditions only when insurance is purchased within 15 days of booking. Clients must be able to provide proof of insurance to staff upon request. Clients who fail to obtain travel insurance will not be allowed to climb.
