Insurance for Nepal

Postby johnrs » Fri 12 Jul, 2019 7:01 pm

Hi folks
Does anyone have any experience with insurance for Nepal?
We are in need of two ploicies, one ageneral trekking one for about 100 days,
and another for about a week crossing some climbing passes at 6300m, these will involve some use of ropes and climbing equipment.
Thanks for any suggestions
John

Options?

World Nomads
Global Rescue
Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance

Read the fine print! Some of these provide evacuation back to a hospital of your choice. Medevac flights are expensive ...
Some may not cover what you are doing. Read the policy. Your life could depend on it.

IHI travel insurance used to be very good for most adventures bar mountaineering. Have used 10 years ago, and was very happy with it.
This could be an option for your trekking needs.
