We recommend you take out your own Personal Accident & Liability Insurance before your holiday starts. We recommend World Nomad Insurance. In the event of an emergency, if you are on a Guided Walk – your guide will look after phone-calls and will organise to get you to a doctor or hospital, if necessary. If payment is required for medical attention and/or for prescriptions, your guide will ask you for the appropriate money.
If you are on a Self-Guiding Hike or a Bike trip – you will need to get yourself to a doctor or hospital, if necessary. If payment is required for medical attention and/or for prescriptions, you will need to pay that but ask for a receipt so you can claim from your insurance if applicable. PLEASE do ring us as soon as possible to inform us – we will help you as appropriately & quickly as we can.
All EU countries have a reciprocal health care scheme where you can claim back at least some of your health care expenditure on return, providing you have the necessary forms. Pick up a leaflet from your local Health Care Centre before you depart.
