When you go trekking, regardless of whether you are a beginner or an expert, you shouldn’t take nature for granted. So, always prioritise your safety. It’s important to have your wits about you at all times while trekking, but there are measures you can take before you embark, such as purchasing trekking travel insurance, to protect yourself from unforeseen circumstances such as an accident or losing your credit or debit card.

Take a closer look at the safety tips you must consider before setting out on a trek.

Purchase customised insurance

You can never be too sure of what you may encounter when exploring the outdoors. Trekking travel insurance is a reliable safety net that protects you when you’re indulging in this adventure sport. With CPP Travel Safe Trekking Travel Insurance available via Bajaj Finserv, you can avail financial assistance of up to Rs.1 lakh for travel and hotel expenses in case you are stranded.

Purchase customised insurance

You also get complimentary insurance against cancellation of trips, baggage loss, etc. up to Rs.3 lakh, all for a payment of Rs.699 annually. CPP Travel Safe Trekking Travel Insurance also provides you with a replacement smartphone in case you lose yours, to get in touch with your family or friends.

Check the weather forecast

Before you embark on your journey, check the weather forecast of the place you intend to trek to. If the weather department predicts adverse conditions, don’t take the risk. Instead, cancel or postpone your trek.

Hike during the day

Start your trek early in the morning and continue until nightfall. Avoid trekking at night as visibility is poor, you may charter off course or trip and fall, thereby injuring yourself. You’re also more vulnerable to insect bites and attacks from other animals in the night.

When you venture into the wild with these safety tips in mind, you can enjoy your trek without a worry. Trekking travel insurance will help you tackle anything that comes your way.
