/ Ama Dablam - Insurance?
Last time I was in Kathmandu, I took out great value 'Peak Insurance' for the duration of a summit push to cover emergency recovery, but only found out later that I was risking invalidating my general travel insurance for the rest of the trip!
Does anyone have any recommendations, or a ballpark price figure to aim for?
Campbell Irvine and Dogtag are worth a look, not sure on cost but I had the top coverage from Dogtag on Aconcagua and that was £140 for a month.
Will check snocard too, have found their cover more flexible and better value than the bmc in the past, but always felt that there were/should be more companies out there, that don't necessarily come up on a google search.
The standard answer, and the one I went with for Ama Dablam, used to be IHI. But, I think something has changed about it now which makes it less attractive, hopefully someone who knows a bit more will be along.
It was the cheapest cover for high altitude I could find, and you didn't have to get it from home country to home country, unlike many other insurers (WARNING, many policies are invalidated if you don't get them for the entire trip from home and back, and they'll use this as a reason to decline a claim, its really fairly obvious from your travel tickets.)
