Travel Insurance

Traveling entails a significant investment of time, money, and anticipation, yet unforeseen circumstances can disrupt even the most carefully laid plans. As your trusted travel agent, we understand that certain events beyond our control may impact your trip, which is why we highly recommend securing comprehensive travel insurance. While we strive to ensure smooth sailing for your journey, having adequate insurance coverage can provide peace of mind and financial protection against a range of potential setbacks.

When embarking on adventures such as climbing Kilimanjaro or exploring the wonders of Tanzania on safari, it’s essential to safeguard your investment with travel insurance that addresses various contingencies. Here are some key aspects that your insurance policy should cover:

  • Trip Cancellation and Interruption: Protection against unforeseen events like illness, death of you, a family member, or a travel companion that may necessitate canceling or cutting short your trip.

  • Emergency Medical Transportation: Coverage for medical emergencies requiring evacuation or transportation to a suitable medical facility.

  • Trip and Baggage Delay: Reimbursement for expenses incurred due to delayed departure or baggage delivery.

  • Lost or Stolen Baggage: Compensation for the loss or theft of your luggage and personal belongings during your travels.

  • Doctor and Hospital Payments: Coverage for medical expenses incurred abroad, including hospital stays, treatments, and consultations.

  • Travel Accident Insurance: Financial protection in the event of accidental injury or death while traveling.

  • Weather Delays: Reimbursement for additional expenses resulting from travel delays caused by adverse weather conditions.

Prior to your journey to Tanzania, we also recommend considering membership with organizations that provide emergency medical evacuation services within the region. These memberships offer invaluable support and peace of mind in the event of a medical emergency:

  • African Medical & Research Foundation Flying Doctors (www.flydoc.org): Offers East Africa memberships starting from US$16 per person per month, providing access to 24-hour air ambulance services and emergency medical evacuation within Tanzania.

  • First Air Responder (www.knightsupport.com/first-air-responder): Provides East Africa memberships from US$10 per week, ensuring prompt emergency medical assistance and evacuation services.
