Planning your walking holiday - Travel Insurance for Walkers, Hikers, Trekkers and Mountaineers
Just ahead of your most comfortable and sturdy pair of walking boots, the most important thing to remember on any walking or hiking trip is travel insurance.
Even if it's just for peace of mind, knowing that you have a reliable safety net will make trekking, rambling or climbing in Germany, Austria, Switzerland or Northern Italy that much more enjoyable.
Chances are your walking holiday will be filled with so many positive and thrilling experiences. But what happens if something goes wrong while you are vacationing in another country? If you suddenly become ill or get in an accident, travel insurance can ensure you get the medical attention or coverage you need. It will also take care of unexpected mishaps from flight cancellation or delays to the loss or theft of personal possessions, money and passports.
When selecting a travel insurance package, do not necessarily select the cheapest one. Ensure it pertains to the particular walking, hiking, trekking or mountaineering holiday you are about to embark on.
