We at Easy Travel advise guests to take out insurance cover which includes ‘cancellation for any reason’. As a minimum, your insurance should also cover you for medical repatriation and trip interruption.
If you do not already hold a policy, then you should purchase cover as soon as possible after you book your trip. Travel Guard insurance (see below) covers trip cancellation due to pre-existing conditions only when insurance is purchased within 15 days of booking.
Comprehensive cover is important and you should ensure you have adequate cover. For climbers coming from the USA, Easy Travel can recommend Travel Guard, who offer their Deluxe, Preferred or Essential policies. These give cover for high altitude trekking, trip cancellation, trip interruption, and trip delay. They also cover against lost, stolen, damaged and delayed baggage, medical expenses and emergency medical evacuation. Their charges are reasonable. You can compare the different policies and buy the chosen cover at Travel Guard.
For visitors coming from certain other countries (including United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, Japan and others) we can recommend the policies offered by World Nomads.
Please note that climbers must be able to provide proof of adequate insurance to our staff, upon request. Those who are not able to prove that they have adequate travel insurance will not be allowed to climb, without exception.
