A Ripcord client experienced first-hand the benefits of travel insurance when his travel plans were interrupted for a planned trip to Argentina to climb Aconcagua. The mountain is the highest mountain in both the Southern and Western Hemispheres, and for many is the climb of a lifetime.

While on an unrelated ski trip in Antarctica, the same client suffered severe frostbite. His upcoming climb had to be canceled.

As a Ripcord client, he had elected to cover the full cost of his trip with our comprehensive travel insurance. When the trip was cancelled, he contacted Ripcord to file a claim and was reimbursed $12,600 – the full cost of his trip.
