Trekking (up to 6,000 metres) Travel Insurance

Trekking is an activity that can be done in many regions across the world, but remains most popular in those areas that offer spectacular views, more challenging climbs and/or the chance to see wildlife. It is an activity that combines walking and camping and is a journey made on foot, often to remote areas that cannot be accessed any other way. It is often undertaken with an emphasis on adventure and may involve walking over mountainous or other rough terrains. Treks up to 6,000 metres of altitude are among the most challenging outdoor pursuits, mainly because of the lack of oxygen in the air.

All of our policies provide cover for Mountain Rescue and Air Ambulance if it is medically required and also at the discretion of the Emergency Assistance Company. We recommend that you provide the company you have booked the Trekking with, the details of the Emergency Assistance Company before you start the trek.

You must always be with a qualified Guide. We cannot provide cover if you are Trekking without a Guide.

2. Common Injuries

Trekking at high altitudes, between 2,000 and 6,000 metres can be an exhilarating experience but it is possible to sustain injury, thus it is important that you are properly covered with Travel Insurance before going on a Trekking holiday.

Trekkers may face many risks including difficult terrain, adverse weather conditions, wild animals and may be subject to many illnesses ranging from dehydration to altitude sickness and physical injury. When trekking at high altitudes the air becomes thinner and oxygen becomes less available. These changes may affect your health.
