The trekking company I am using for my trek to Nepal notes the following on its website: " If you are a US customer and using World Nomads they are now requiring guests to pay evacuation costs out-of pocket in Nepal." I did an online quote, and upon reading the Explorer Plan benefits, did not see similar language for the emergency evacuation portion of the plan. Can you clarify whether I (US citizen, resident of Virginia) would have to pay the emergency evacuation costs out of pocket, as the Himalayan Wonders website indicates? Thank You.
Doug, we at World Nomads are about to send out some comms to our travelers telling them that if they are told by their trekking company or other provider in Nepal that they have to pay upfront for evacuation PLEASE CALL US. Phil at World Nomads about 1 month ago
