Trip Cancellation Insurance
As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.
In many situations, this may be the only way to receive a refund for unused services.
In brief, Trip Cancellation insurance may allow you to get reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents.
Alpine Ascents International offers a plan in conjunction with our travel insurance partner.
“The experience was fantastic. I learned so much about climbing on a glaciated mountain and what’s its like to be part of an expedition. I also learned a lot about myself. The sense of accomplishment is huge and will stick with me for a long time.”
