Hello. My wife and I are going to spend a week hiking in the Italian alps. We will have an alpine guide as required locally. The plan is to progressively hike up to the highest refugio in the region (Magherita hut at over 4500m).
We would like to know what would be the most appropriate insurance cover for this type of trip?
That sounds like an amazing trip!
To be sure you're covered up to certain altitudes, type in 'trekking' or 'hiking' as one of the activities you want cover for when getting your quote and buying your policy.
There will be options to select the altitude. When you do, it'll provide you with a summary of coverage and any additional premium's that may apply.
Hope this helps.
