Travel Insurance for Trekking in Nepal

If you are thinking of trekking in Nepal this year it is doubly important to secure travel insurance to cover this activity. This is because many leading insurers are now refusing to provide cover due to a massive surge in the number of fraudulent helicopter rescues occurring in Nepal.
Big Cat is not among that number, and we are committed to continuing to providing insurance for trekkers to Nepaltrekking insurance Nepal through our Nepal Trekking Activity pack. But as always there is a price to pay to cover the additional risk that such fraud imposes, so regrettably we have been compelled to increase the excess to £1,500 in the event that a helicopter rescue is necessary.

Getting cover through our Nepal Trekking Activity pack will ensure that in the event that you sustain an injury which requires hospitalisation or you suffer acute mountain sickness (AMS) which cannot be remedied by descending to a lower level, then you will receive the prompt attention of a helicopter rescue and any necessary hospital treatment as a consequence.
Big Cat wants you to enjoy the incredible experiences that Nepal offers the trekker. And with our Nepal Trekking Activity pack, you can rest assured that you're fully covered.
