Insurance Coverage for Mount Ararat Climbing Expeditions

Legal Disclaimer: On this page, you will find information about Mount Ararat Climbing Insurance. Our company serves as an organizer of tours and climbs, rather than an insurance provider. Please note that we do not possess the legal authority to sell insurance. As per the laws of the Republic of Turkey, it is obligatory for tour organizers to procure “Incoming Insurance” on behalf of participants, encompassing specific conditions. We ensure the acquisition of this insurance for each individual joining our tours. However, it is important to acknowledge that this insurance does not cover climbing activities and may not fully meet your requirements. Therefore, we recommend purchasing dedicated climbing insurance from our trusted partner company. It is your responsibility to obtain climbing or supplementary health insurance.

Our company is legally responsible for insuring all customers in case of tour cancellations during all climbing and cultural tours. In addition to tour cancellation insurance, we have also included insurance coverage for health and baggage loss in all of our tours. There is no extra payment required for these coverages. Insurance documents can be obtained as early as three months before the start of your trip. Once your insurance is prepared, the documents will be sent to your email address. The insurance coverage details are as follows:

Please be aware that insurance coverage for extreme, climbing, and dangerous sports is unfortunately not provided for foreign nationals in Turkey.

Some companies may present travel cancellation insurance as if it were climbing insurance. We often come across such claims on the internet. You can ask these companies to provide you with a sample insurance contract to have a chance to assess their honesty.

We kindly recommend that you consider acquiring climbing insurance from your home country or purchasing insurance online through Global Rescue, the company we have partnered with.
