FAQ ABOUT INSURANCE
  1. What kind of travel insurance do my clients need for a helicopter evacuation on Mount Kilimanjaro?
  • A travel insurance which covers Medical Evacuation up to 6,000 Meters, above sea level. It is very important your clients ask the travel insurance companies to include this in their final prices.
  1. Is the same insurance required for evacuation on Mount Meru?
  • If clients are climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and they have proper insurance coverage up to 6000m then they will also be covered on Mt Meru.
  1. What do I do if my client doesn’t have this kind of insurance?
  • Ask client to contact their Travel Insurance company to ensure they will have Medical Evacuation up to 6000m.
  1. Why do standard insurance packages do not cover high altitude trekking?
  • There is more risk involved for the insurance company, which means less profit.
  • The risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) increases dramatically above 2800 Meters, as do the costs of emergency medical services and evacuation.
  1. Is it possible for Kilimanjaro SAR to evacuate a client without a proper insurance?
  • Yes, it’s possible. Kilimanjaro SAR is committed to save lives of all climbers. In case they lack a proper insurance, they will have to pay for evacuation costs after they are fully recovered.
  1. Can Kilimanjaro SAR help my client to issue a proper insurance?
  • No, it is very simple to purchase this insurance online or over the phone – even from Tanzania. However, as time goes on Kilimanjaro SAR will recommend the best insurers to tour operators, and so tour operators will recommend insurers to their clients.
  1. Do I have to submit my client’s document prior to hiking?
  • Yes, Kilimanjaro SAR advise tour operators to submit their clients’ insurance details and passport copies before hiking.
  • We need the operators to give us all climbing manifests prior to hiking.
  1. What kind of insurance is required for evacuation within national parks and game reserves?

TREKKING MEDICAL EVACUATION COVERAGE
MOUNTAINEERING /HIKING - INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS

Travel Insurance which includes Mountaineering and Hiking Insurance provides coverage for people mountain climbing or hiking while abroad. Mountaineers of all skill levels are at risk to the dangers of climbing, especially those traveling overseas to famous mountaineering destinations such as Kilimanjaro, the Andes Mountains and Mount Everest.

Many travel insurance policies strictly exclude mountaineering and other adventurous activities from plan benefits, which is why it is important to select a policy with mountain climbing coverage or a ‘hazardous-sport rider’ to ensure that you’re covered in the event of a mountaineering accident.Travel insurance for mountaineers also includes: emergency medical evacuation coverage, surgery, emergency hospital visits, and repatriation benefits. Travel insurance policies usually specify the maximum elevation the plan will cover.

For example, if you are injured while hiking at 15,000 feet, and your policy only covers hiking injuries up to 14,000 feet, your claim may be denied. Be sure to consider the elevation of your mountaineering trek when purchasing a travel/medical insurance policy. 

Who Needs Mountaineering & Hiking Insurance? 

People who will be partaking in any of the following activities up to 6000m should purchase a policy with mountain climbing coverage:

 Mountaineering

•Mountain climbing

•Hiking

• Trekking Why Do Climbers Need Mountaineering Insurance with Travel Insurance?

• Covers mountaineering injuries

• Covers medical & emergency evacuation in case rescue is needed

• Offers repatriation coverage in case of death

KILIMANJARO TRAVEL INSURANCE CONSIDERATION - BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY

To ensure you are covered for all risks we have set out the main Kilimanjaro Travel Insurance considerations below. There is also a nifty travel insurance calculator from adventure travel insurance experts, World Nomads, which you can use to get a quote for your Kilimanjaro trek.

Please note: consult an insurance professional to decide which product is right for your travel needs and make sure you read the terms and conditions of the policy wording and description of coverage. It is ultimately your responsibility to decide if the policy you choose is right for you.

High altitude

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) and the more severe forms of High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HACE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HAPE) are very real issues on Kilimanjaro.

You need to ensure that you are covered for high altitude trekking up to 6,000 meters. Most travel insurance providers do not include this under their standard packages and therefore it needs to be selected separately.

Important: most routes on Kilimanjaro are pure hiking paths. If you plan to do mountaineering with ropes etc, you will need to inform your insurance provider, and this will likely double your premium. In the case of World Nomads, you would need to add ‘mountaineering’ to your cover.

Trekking Accidents

Like AMS, general trekking accidents, like falls, rock slides and complications related to your health (i.e. heart conditions) whilst trekking are also a real concern on Kilimanjaro.

You need to ensure your policy covers accidents that can occur on the mountain, including the costs of helicopter evacuation and hospital coverage.

Off Mountain Accidents and Illnesses

Tanzania is a developing country where illnesses like yellow fever and malaria are concerns.Coverage for any illnesses and accidents that can happen off the mountain should be included in your Kilimanjaro travel insurance coverage.
