‘I will always recommend you to my family and friends’

Camp 1 on Mt. Aconcagua

Branimir M., a Ripcord client climbing Mt Aconcagua in Argentina, experienced severe dental pain caused by changes in atmospheric pressure. He had to abandon his ascent of the highest peak in South America, and was evacuated off of the mountain.

This also meant that Branimir had to adjust his return flights and incur additional hotel room costs. Including his lost climbing days, he had incurred $3,074 in losses in all.

As a comprehensive travel insurance climber with Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance, he submitted a claim, and Ripcord reimbursed him the full amount.

“Thank you for your fast response and overall high level of business communication,” Branimir wrote in an email. “I will always recommend your company to my family and to friends who are passionate travelers.”
