What insurance will you need for your Machu Picchu trek?

Kandoo insists that you have adequate insurance to cover any medical or accident-related expenses. 

Make sure your insurer knows of your travel plans, and check that your policy fully covers your trek and any other activities you plan. Specifically, for treks on the Inca Trail you require insurance coverage up to 4500 metres. For the Lares and Salkantay trails it is up to 5000 metres  and for  the Ausangate Trek up to 5500 metres.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fully and adequately insured for the duration of your trip. Please ensure that all activities, excursions and destinations in your itinerary are included in your travel insurance policy, in addition to your regular cover for cancellation and medical expenses.

We ask that you keep a copy of your policy summary (containing policy number and the emergency contact number for your insurer) in your day sack at all times, so that we can access this information should we need to contact the insurer on your behalf.

We recommend dogtag, the specialist adventure travel insurers and the global supplier of travel insurance, World Nomads. Make sure you include hiking to your required altitude as a sport/activity before checkout and be sure to read the small print carefully for any policy you are considering. Different policies provide different levels of cover, so make sure you understand what is and isn't included in your policy.
