Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is mandatory for all trekkers.

You are required to have a personal travel insurance policy at least 60 days prior to the departure date of your trek. Your travel insurance policy must include provision for

  • emergency evacuation from anywhere along the track by helicopter, aircraft, or porters to Port Moresby;

  • medical treatment in Port Moresby and/or Australia as appropriate;

  • payment of hospital bills and repatriation back to Australia if necessary;

  • travel delays; lost/delayed luggage; lost/stolen money;

  • death and disability cover.

You are required to advise Adventure Kokoda of your Policy Number and Insurance Company and certify that it includes the above requirements.

Air tickets

If you book ex-Port Moresby and arrange your own international air tickets you must ensure you are able to transfer them to another date should your trek be cancelled or postponed for any reason.  Adventure Kokoda will not be responsible for any loss due to air tickets that are not transferable to another time or date.

Credit Card Charge

A surcharge is applicable on all payments made by credit card.  This varies according to the normal rate charged by Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Diners, etc.

Passport

You will need to have a current passport - which MUST be valid for six months from the return date of your travel.

VISA FOR ENTRY INTO PNG

You will need to arrange for an entry Visa into PNG.  Visa on Arrival (VOA) can be obtained for eligible countries.  Visit the Papua New Guinea Immigration and Citizenship website for further information or contact your nearest PNG Diplomatic Mission.  The visa will be valid for six months from the time of issue.

Price Variation

The trek price may change at any time due to international currency fluctuations, Australian/PNG airport tax departure variations, airline fuel surcharges, and other charges.

These variations would not normally be charged to you after your full payment has been received. However if the variations are substantial you will have the option of canceling your trip and receiving a full refund or upgrading to a later trek.

Tour Variation

PNG has been referred to as 'the land of the unexpected'.  It is a developing nation and as such we cannot accept responsibility for accident, loss, injury, disappointment, delay in irregularity in flight accommodation, transportation and other services provided on your trip.

Application for any refunds due to any of these unforeseen circumstances must be made in writing.  Any claim must be limited to the cost of the service.  Adventure Kokoda does not accept liability for any additional costs for airline or transportation delays.  In the event of any legal action against Adventure Kokoda the client/travel agent agrees where and/or accepting travel documents that such action will take place under the terms of the laws of the independent nation of Papua New Guinea.

Trek Itinerary Variations

Adventure Kokoda reserves the right to:

  • change direction of the trek from Owers Corner to Kokoda or from Kokoda to Owers Corner if there are less than 10 trekkers booked on a particular direction; and

  • make any variations to the trek itinerary in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

Personal Carrier

If you are not in peak physical condition you are strongly advised to engage a Personal Carrier prior to your departure from Australia.

If you are required to engage a Personal Carrier during your trek, you will be required to pay the full fee plus a $150 surcharge.  Adventure Kokoda cannot guarantee the engagement of personal carriers during any trek.

Withdrawal from the Trek

If you have to withdraw from the trek for medical or any other reason you will be required to return to Australia on the first available international flight.

If you are evacuated from the trek for any reason you will be required to meet any personal accommodation, transport and medical expenses incurred whilst in Port Moresby and claim these against your personal travel insurance policy.

Adventure Kokoda will not accept liability for any such expenses.

Personal Health Requirements

The Kokoda Trail crosses the rugged and remote Owen Stanley ranges in Papua New Guinea.  The trek across the trail is a physically arduous challenge in a hot, humid and wet tropical environment. You therefore need to have a high standard of physical fitness and be free of physical ailments and handicaps.

Medical

You are advised to arrange for an appointment with your Medical Doctor to arrange for complete health check-up and fitness test due to the remote and physically challenging nature of the trek across the Kokoda Trail.
