Travel Insurance

A travel insurance policy to cover theft, travel cancellation, flight delays, flight cancellations, travel problems, lost luggage or any item, including helicopter rescue flights, and other medical problems is a very important component for travel in Nepal.

When trekking in mountain areas, there can, sometimes, be the possibility of health issues, injuries, altitude sickness, and the like. There are a wide variety of policies of insurance available so check the policies, read them carefully, and choose a policy that covers medical and emergency transport, including helicopter evacuation for trekkers if needed. These events in some cases can be costly therefore you might purchase a policy that provides you with a minimum expenses limit of 100,000.00 US dollars. Also, you may prefer a policy that pays doctors or hospitals directly rather than you pay on the spot and claim later. In Nepal, most medical treatment must be paid at the point of delivery. If your insurance company does not provide upfront payments, then make sure you obtain receipts so you can reclaim them later.

Travelers must have a valid travel insurance policy to cover the possible eventualities as mentioned above because it is an essential condition of joining a trip with Jagadamba Holidays. In addition, we strongly recommend travelers take travel insurance (with COVID cover) if it’s available. If you have not arranged appropriate insurance cover, a list of Worldwide Travel Insurance companies that have been used by our previous travelers is provided below. It is, of course, up to you to make your own inquiries as to the most suitable policy for you, and Jagadamba Holidays make no recommendations in this regard.
