Our Abseiling Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance will cover you whilst abseiling abroad for leisure or competition, and includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, plus more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have an existing travel insurance policy in place with another provider such as your bank but it does not include cover for abseiling, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect you whilst abseiling in the UK, whether that be for leisure or competition. The policy provides a range of benefits including personal liability and income protection.

Why do I need Abseiling Insurance?

Abseiling can be dangerous and presents a number of risks to the participants. 

As a result injuries can occur through collisions with obstacles such as trees and rocks. Heavy falls, most common due to failing anchors can result in broken bones, head traumas, spinal injuries and dislocations to name just a few. Less severe injuries from abseiling may include stress, rope burn or bruising.

Despite the potential risks, abseiling is generally considered a very safe pastime enjoyed by people of all ages. However, it is highly recommended that you take out suitable insurance to cover yourself against injuries sustained whilst abseiling.
