Pre-departure cancellation is not included in Outlook's insurance. We
would therefore strongly recommend that you consider taking out a
cancellation policy independently.
Look for cover that would include withdrawal from the expedition for reasons such as personal illness, injury or family illness.
Loss of Passport
most valuable possession on expedition is your passport. If you lose
it, costs aren't just limited to the replacement of your travel
documents. You could incur costs for travel to and from the embassy (for
you and a Leader), accommodation, flights to catch up with the team or even flights home. It can get very costly!
strongly advise that you take out personal belongings insurance that
covers the loss of passport whilst abroad and any associated costs.
Whilst we recommend that you leave expensive belongings, especially gadgets, at home - if you decide to bring along a camera or similar with you - it won't be covered on Outlook's insurance. Please check your home insurance and if it's not covered, look into alternative insurance for your personal belongings.
