INSURANCE
For all the Whitewater Adventures Nepal holiday trips you must have comprehensive travel insurance which we recommend you take at the time of paying your trip deposit. Participants without adequate insurance cover will be asked to arrange cover immediately before commencing their holiday and this can be very difficult and expensive to arrange.

For trekking trips your policy MUST cover evacuation by helicopter and repatriation. In the event of emergency evacuation, you are liable to the helicopter operating company and to WWAN for both the operating company’s direct costs. 10 per cent of the total cost will be paid to cover WWAN costs for organizing the evacuation. The amount paid to the helicopter company could amount to thousands of US dollars Passengers requiring emergency evacuation will be billed for the cost and required to this pay prior to departing Kathmandu or the relevant point of exit. WWAN will supply all necessary supporting documentation to enable you to make an insurance claim. We wish to state that your primary obligation for payment rests with you.

In particular, your policy should cover you for whichever activities are listed on your itinerary, Whitewater Rafting, Whitewater Kayaking, Trekking, Mountain Biking, Yoga retreat and any other activities included in your trip. Medical and evacuation expenses, lost luggage, search and helicopter rescue and repatriation. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are adequately insured for the whole trip for injury/ death, personal items, accidents, health emergency evacuation and loss or damage to personal effects and last minute cancellation of the trip.

Please check your policy carefully before leaving home and familiarize yourself with the procedures that you may need to follow in the unlikely event that you need to make a claim.

If you are covered by a policy arranged through your credit card company you will be ask to provide evidence of this cover, as well as a 24-hour emergency contact number. Many credit card companies do not provide an insurance policy number. In this instance, the tour leader will need to record your credit card number, as this is required to activate any request for emergency assistance. You should also bring along the travel insurance information booklet provided by your credit card company. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet the requirements set out by your credit card company in order to be effectively covered and that the cover offered is of a suitable standard.
