What is Travel Insurance?

Travel insurance is a type of assurance that covers the costs and losses associated with travelling. Basically, it covers travel medical assurance,flight accident,luggage lost and other losses incurred while traveling and it is useful protection for those travelling domestically or abroad.

Why do you need it?

It is not necessary to have a travel insurance.But by taking it you are essentially covering yourself against travel risks and most importantly, unexpected medical costs abroad.There is always a fear of sudden loss.Therefore it provides a cover against any loss and it is your responsibility to ensure that you are fully and adequately insured for the duration of your trip

Important Note : If you don’t have insurance while  trekking in Nepal.You might end up affecting your health and your bank account.  Especially when it comes to trekking in Nepal,there is a narrow chance of minor health issues, injuries and most importantly – altitude sickness. So if any health issues happen to you at 4,100 feet up a mountain then you’ll need a helicopter to get you down.

A helicopter rescue in Nepal costs a minimum of  USD $5,000.That’s not including any hospital treatments or in-flight medical services.

That’s why we need your travel insurances to cover the cost of helicopter services in any unexpected cause. Therefore,precaution is better than cure.
