Additional Income Protection, which can be added on to our trekking insurance means that should you suffer an injury on a trek that means you miss work, you could be eligible to claim for loss of earnings.
Trekking differs from walking in that it’s generally considered more a form of hiking and is therefore more arduous, often comprising of steeper terrain. Many trekkers travel through isolated areas, giving them a different type of experience than walking within organised groups. Trekking can be done anywhere in the world, including popular areas such as the Himalayas in Asia and the Andes in South America.
