Travel insurance is compulsory for all of our trips and we recommend that participants take this out as soon as possible. This will insure you, not only against unforeseen problems that may occur overseas, but also if you are forced to cancel your trip prior to departure (provided it is due to an insured reason).

You are free to choose a policy that suits your needs which includes cover for all activities featured as part of your trip and depending on your challenge, the policy you choose should cover you for trekking at altitude and helicopter evacuation. Please refer to your Challenge Briefing Pack to ensure that you have all of the necessary cover.

If you are arranging your own travel insurance policy then you will must send a copy through to If we have not received proof that you are insured 12 weeks prior to your challenge, then your place on your challenge will be at risk.
