Kilimanjaro Travel Insurance UK
When planning a climbing or trekking trip to Kilimanjaro, it is essential to be aware of the risks involved and for this reason, it is wise to organise a travel insurance policy for UK citizens to cover all eventualities. The correct cover should encompass the possibility of theft or loss of property, as well as medical problems or the possibility of a last minute cancellation.
You should make your broker aware of the fact that you are trekking in what can be a dangerous environment, as not all policies cover adventure sports. The policy should also cover the possibility of an emergency medical transfer or a sudden flight home. Theft tends to be a real problem in most African countries, so having the correct cover ensures that should your camera, laptop or phone be stolen, those items can be replaced with no financial loss.
There is a range of options available to ensure the ideal cover. If you are heading to Mount Kilimanjaro on a short trip, consider short stay cover. However, if you are planning on staying a little longer, long stay cover is the ideal option.
