Travel Insurance is also an important security measure that Adventure International strongly advises you purchase. For recommendations, you can review Adventure International's travel insurance page. Travel Insurance is there to cover things that the ground handler/safari company, Adventure International cannot - repatriation should you have a health emergency, costs of things like helicopters for evacuation, trip cancellation, and so on. Please do not rely on automatic cover from credit cards, read the small print, and if you need any help, email the Adventure International team.
Insurance Information It is essential that clients take out adequate insurance cover against all risks associated with adventure travel, this means appropriate travel and medical insurance prior to departure of clients from their country of origin. A bike adventure, climb, or safari is an adventure holiday and accordingly neither Adventure International, LLC nor their officers and employees shall be liable in way for any loss or damages expenses or costs arising from any incident involving clients that may occur whilst using any of the services provided by either Adventure International, LLC or third parties contracted by the company.
Insurance should at least cover: personal accident, medical expenses, hospitalization, repatriation, trip curtailment, cancellation, and loss of valuables.
