Trip Cancellation Insurance

To purchase Trip Cancellation/Evacuation Insurance for your trip:

As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance for all programs. Trip cancellation insurance may allow you to receive reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition. In most situations, trip cancellation insurance may be the only way to receive a refund for unused services or if you cancel less than 120 days before departure.  Please refer to policy for specific details, Alpine Ascents is not the insurance offeror.

Alpine Ascents International offers cancellation/evac plans in conjunction with our primary travel insurance provider, Ripcord.

Ripcord

When purchasing, no code is needed to purchase Ripcord travel insurance as this insurance plan is prearranged with Alpine Ascents.
We recommend the Comprehensive Travel Insurance Policy as this includes both Trip Cancellation and Interruption.
