A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is quite shocking. Therefore, we strongly recommend travel insurance for everyone who signs up with us.
It is a mandatory condition for joining any of Adventure Club Inc’s trips to be protected against comprehensive expenses likely to incur due to health issues, accidents, flight cancelation, trip cancelation.
You need to be careful while choosing a travel insurance policy as some insurance companies make special exceptions for adventure travel. Please make sure your insurer is aware of our itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip.
For example, if you are planning trekking or expedition in the mountains your insurance must cover emergency helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For trips like in Tibet there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so it is not necessary to buy the air ambulance coverage. Make sure you also check your insurance policy firmly to include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.
Insurance for Leisure Tours
Leisure tours usually do not involve traveling to risky zones or high altitudes; thus, they do not require advanced travel insurance. However, for these tours, your insurance should cover medical issues, pandemic, epidemic, flight cancelation and trip cancelation issues.
Trekking and Walking Holidays
The difficulty level on different trekking areas vary mainly due to the altitude and the mountain terrain, which might pose a high risk of life. You might need an emergency evacuation in areas where roads and hospitals are not accessible. For these types of trips, you must inform your insurance company about the maximum altitude that you will be trekking to. Accordingly, your insurance company will cover for emergency search, evacuation and medical issues. Also, don’t forget to include trip cancelation in the insurance coverage. Before buying your insurance policy, please contact one of our travel consultants for more details.
Climbing and Expedition
Climbing and Expedition trips are extremely risky. In the mountain cliffs, you will be climbing with ropes on ice and snow and there is a high risk of fatality. For these trips, you will require an advanced rescue insurance whose premium is usually a bit higher. Insurance companies offer policies based on the altitude that you will be tackling during your trip. Remember – search, rescue, and advanced medical insurances are mandatory for your climbing and expedition trips with us.
You need to send us a copy of your insurance policy details or carry it with you while you come for the trip. If you are unable to present the insurance that is required for a Himalayan Glacier trip, the company solely reserves the right to cancel your trip.
Note: We do not sell or coordinate or even encourage you to buy an insurance from any insurance company. This is just a recommendation and a professional advice to you. You can find an insurance company of your choice from our recommendations given below:
