You must ensure that you have adequate travel insurance for your Kilimanjaro trek; you should also check that the policy covers you for high altitude climbing and trekking. We reccomend that you make copies of your policy and keep one copy with you at all times.
Your travel insurance policy should include cover for the following;
Holiday insurance policies that include cover for trekking over 4000m
There are many insurance companies that offer policies that include high altitude insurance and will cover you for climbing Kilimanjaro, here are some of the policies we found that offer this type of cover:
Dogtag - SPORT+ insurance policy; which has three levels of cover.
Snowcard – Activity level 3 insurance policy; which has four levels of cover.
British Mountaineering Council – Trek insurance policy; covers Kilimanjaro but not Umbwe route. (This does require BMC or BMC affiliated club membership).
