Travel Insurance for UK and EU Residents
It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). We also strongly recommend that you take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable. Please ensure that your insurer is aware of your KE Adventure itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken.
You will then need to advise us of your policy details and complete an Insurance Declaration. The Insurance Declaration can be completed in your MyKE account or you can download a PDF version of the form and email or fax +44 (0) 17687 74693 it back to us.
We recently approached insurers Campbell Irvine and asked them for a travel related insurance story to share with you to highlight the importance of getting the right cover, click here to read more .
CAMPBELL IRVINE DIRECT travel insurance is available to EU residents and will cover the majority of KE Adventure holidays. It has been designed to provide cover for activities normally excluded by other insurers such as trekking, mountain biking and climbing holidays. Please note that certain activities may attract a higher premium. In addition cover cannot be provided by Campbell Irvine Direct for KE climbing trips above 6000m, cover for these peaks can be obtained through Travelex (see below).
TRAVELEX is a USA based insurer offering travel insurance which can be used by anyone regardless of nationality or country of residence, including UK and European residents. KE recommends the "Travelex Select" package for our holidays. If your holiday involves using mountaineering equipment (ropes, harness or crampons), for either climbing or glacial travel, you should add the "Adventure Plus" option to the Travelex Select cover. This policy will also cover KE climbing trips above 6000m.
Travelex insurance plans can be quickly and easily purchased online, just click on the Travelex logo.
