Personal Travel Insurance for Holidays in the UK & Europe

Travel insurance is a compulsory pre-requisite for your active holiday in the UK and Europe and we recommend you organise your personal travel insurance at the time of booking. This way you avoid having to make last-minute arrangements and you may be covered for unforeseen circumstances before departure where cancellation of your holiday is required.

Why Take Out Travel Insurance

There are several reasons to take out travel insurance for your cycling or walking holiday and, if you have booked a trip with Sherpa Expeditions, your insurance must have the following:

  • Medical coverage
  • Coverage for evacuation from a remote area
  • Repatriation coverage

Other inclusions you may consider for your insurance:

  • Loss, theft or damage to your belongings
  • Cancellation coverage (if you unexpectedly need to cancel a confirmed holiday)
  • Accidents

Please note that no insurance covers for natural disasters and that depending on your length of stay and nationality, your visa application for Europe or the UK may require proof of sufficient travel insurance.
