Anyone booking a trip with us must be in possession of valid travel insurance. First and foremost, you should make sure that your insurance policy covers you for climbing Kilimanjaro, as not every policy does. If you are in any doubt, you should contact your policy provider and ask them.
This is especially important as cover for high altitude trekking at 6,000 metres will entitle you to medical support and helicopter evacuation by Kilimanjaro Search and Rescue (SAR). Without such cover, these services are not available.
As well as this specific cover, most policies will cover the following:
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.
