Insurance for treks like Kilimanjaro or Everest Base Camp

It's a necessity for these expeditions...


When you've got your expedition place sorted then you'll need to get your insurance in order, too.

This will ensure you're covered in the event of having to cancel for personal reasons plus give you what's needed on your trip like medical cover, helicopter rescue, repatriation to your home country and more.

This would also cover belongings overseas, lost luggage if it happens and other key aspects of cover which might also be costs incurred due to delays or cancellations by airlines.

Travel insurance is available from places like The BMC, Snowcard and World Nomad but we recommend True Traveller -


After you've entered your travel and personal details you'll then be prompted to select an 'adventure pack' and further bits to ensure you're covered for the trip you're booked on.

This may be location specific or driven by altitude. Details are very clear within the process.

If you have pre-existing conditions you may need to look for a specialist insurance company and if you're not in the UK you may need to look more locally. There are lots of options via a Google search.

It's always worth printing a copy of the certificate off and leaving with your local operator, team or sending a pic so that someone has details in the event of an emergency.

If you're part of an Aspire Adventures trip we will ask for a copy of this so our medical teams in country can speed up the authorisation processes.

Something you should always look at is whether your insurance requires you to pay for certain things in advance or whether they require authorisation before. This could be necessary for things like helicopter evacuation. 

Please not that your trip insurance is a personal responsibility and if not adequately insured you may be liable for extensive costs.

You'll also be able to use this same process for stuff like the great wall of China, Machu Picchu, treks in the Alps. Lots of options.

If you haven't booked your space on Everest Base Camp, Kilimanjaro or Island Peak you can have a look below. We'd love to have you in one or multiple teams.




Happy trekking...
