Insurances for our guests from Switzerland
From our experience we can recommend the following providers, respectively the following products:
The TCS offers an all-round carefree package (cancellation costs, foreign health, rescue costs, accident, repatriation insurance) called ETI Schutzbrief Plus for TCS members. There are currently no upper limits on the price of travel or exclusions of travel to high altitudes. For more information: www.tcs.ch
The Mobiliar also offers comprehensive travel protection. For more information, see www.mobiliar.ch
The Rega is a nonprofit company based in Switzerland. Rega is known for its rescues by helicopter in alpine accidents in Switzerland. However, Rega is also there for its members abroad and organizes, for example, patient transport back home in the event of a medical emergency. Rega is not an insurance company, but only assumes the costs if insurance companies or other third parties are not liable to pay. For more information, visit www.rega.ch

Insurance for 8'000m, 7'000m expeditions and the Seven Summits
Global Rescue, a company based in the USA, is a leading provider of travel and risk insurance. Global Rescue offers the right product for our trips, which is why we signed a partner agreement.
The company is specialized in organizing rescue chains, especially in remote regions. We recommend this provider especially to our participants of the 8’000m and 7’000m expeditions. One either purchases a membership for a certain period of time, or takes out an “all-round carefree package” including travel cancellation insurance.

IMG Global is a partner of Global Rescue and specializes in premium travel insurance. Since Global Rescue excludes the two poles as destinations, we recommend this provider to our Antarctic and Arctic guests. Insurance for expeditions to the poles is mandatory and must meet specific criteria in each case. Therefore, we are happy to assist in obtaining insurance. More information at www.imglobal.com.
