Travel Insurance for Altitude Cover

If your travel plans are going to be taking you somewhere off the beaten path like the Himalayas or the foothills of Machu Picchu, you might want to consider the apparent risks associated with the altitude in those locations. Our policies are going to provide the cover you need when travelling at high altitudes and mountain passes. 

Extras

There are no exclusions for altitude limits under any of our policies available online. 
However, exclusions do apply for the use of support ropes and for any trek which includes a rock climbing component. Under these circumstances you will not be covered during the use of support ropes and if you are partaking in rock climbing during your trek. 
 
Take a look at some of the coverage offered which may apply to you if your travels take you to some high-altitude destinations:
  • Unlimited medical and dental cover
  • Unlimited medical evacuation and repatriation are available on many policies.  
  • All policies include medical evacuation but can vary. Please get a quote via the quote panel on-page to view the benefits for each policy side by side.

    • Hospital compensation (of up to $8000)
    • Emergency luggage (of up to $1,000)
    • Personal liability cover (of up to $3,000,000)
    Travelling at high altitudes has some medical risks associated with it, particularly for young children, the elderly and anyone who suffers from high/low blood pressure or heart disease.

    If an injury or pre-existing medical condition is worse off by a high-altitude adventure, you may be prohibited from receiving full coverage unless you have applied beforehand for coverage of pre-existing medical conditions. 

    Drinking alcohol or taking illicit substances while at high-altitude can bring on or worsen symptoms of altitude sickness and may inhibit full insurance coverage.
