Personal Insurance and Travel Arrangements

Travel insurance is strongly recommended. Make sure you have adequate health, life and disability insurance for you and your family and that your policies cover you while out of the country. You may want to purchase a rescue policy to help cover rescue or evacuation costs if necessary. Be aware that some travel policies do not cover climbing or high altitude activities.
