At North x South Expeditions, your safety and well-being are our top priorities. As part of our commitment to ensuring a smooth and secure experience, we now require all travelers to purchase travel insurance with high altitude coverage at a minimum.

 Our travel insurance recommendations are listed below.


Here's why this requirement is in place:

Protecting You from Unexpected Events 

Traveling entails inherent risks, and unforeseen circumstances can disrupt even the most meticulously planned trips. From sudden illnesses and accidents to natural disasters and travel disruptions, travel insurance acts as a vital safety net. It provides financial protection and support when you need it the most, allowing you to navigate unforeseen challenges without unnecessary stress. 

Comprehensive Medical Coverag

Your health and well-being are crucial when traveling. In the event of an unexpected illness or injury, travel insurance covers medical expenses, hospital stays, and emergency medical evacuations. This coverage ensures that you receive the necessary care, regardless of your location, without facing exorbitant costs that could strain your budget or compromise your recovery.

Ensuring Travel Continuity 

Flight cancellations, delays, and missed connections can throw your travel plans off track. By purchasing travel insurance, you gain access to benefits that help you manage these situations efficiently. From reimbursement for unused accommodations and transportation to assistance with rescheduling flights or finding alternative routes, insurance provides the necessary support to ensure your journey continues smoothly.

Protecting Your Belongings 

Your personal gear and belongings are valuable and essential to your climbs. Travel insurance safeguards your possessions against loss, theft, or damage. In case of lost luggage or stolen items, insurance offers coverage and reimbursement, allowing you to replace necessary items and continue your trip with peace of mind.

Emergency Assistance and Support 

Travel insurance goes beyond financial protection. It often includes 24/7 emergency assistance services, providing you with round-the-clock support and guidance during your travels. Whether you need medical advice, assistance with language barriers, or help coordinating emergency travel arrangements, insurance ensures you have a reliable resource to turn to in times of need.

By requiring travel insurance, we aim to enhance your travel experience by mitigating risks and having a solution to offer comprehensive support when unexpected situations arise. Your safety, well-being, and peace of mind are paramount to us, and this requirement reflects our commitment to providing you with a secure and worry-free journey. Travel confidently, knowing that you have the protection you need every step of the way.
