Most standard travel insurance packages will not provide adequate protection whilst participating in sports such as bouldering. If you have found this to be the case, then our Activity TopUp policy is perfect for you. This specialist product will provide protection purely for the bouldering element of your trip as an add on to your existing travel insurance.
Why Do I Need Bouldering Travel Insurance?
When planning a climbing trip, it is important to know you are covered. However, without adequate bouldering insurance in place you could be setting off unprotected.
With our Sports Travel Insurance, you are covered for standard travel insurance as well as your bouldering activities plus you will enjoy the below benefits;
• Cover for your equipment or that which is hired to you during your trip in case it is damaged, delayed, lost or stolen up to £5,600.
• If you are injured and require medical treatment, the bill will be picked up by your insurance policy. Should you need to be repatriated back home, or if search and rescue teams are called, the costs will be handled by your policy.
• As with standard travel insurance you are also covered if you have to cancel or cut short a holiday abroad, or if your flight’s delayed or your baggage fails to arrive at your destination, your policy could repay the costs.
• Personal liability covering your legal liability resulting from accidents causing death, bodily injury or property damage to a third party.
• Discounts for couples, families and group policies.
How is Bouldering Insurance different?
Bouldering is a style of rock climbing without a rope normally limited to very short climbs over a crash pad designed to prevent serious injury. Those undertaking bouldering normally use large natural or artificially boulders in gyms and urban areas. However, it can also be practised at the base of larger rock faces, or less commonly buildings or public architecture.
We provide cover over 500 sports and activities and we split them into seven sports groups. Bouldering is in our sports group 4, which means you would also be covered for all sports in the same group and any lower groups. Please check our full list of sports activities here.
What equipment is covered?
You can include up to £5,600 worth of equipment cover onto your policy, this add-on not only covers your equipment but also any equipment you hire during your trip. It also covers your equipment in transit to and from your destination.
If your equipment is lost, stolen or damaged while on your bouldering holiday, you could claim back the costs associated with repairing or replacing it.
Does standard travel insurance cover bouldering?
Standard travel insurance policies do not normally pay out for accidents during so-called adventure sports unless additional cover is taken out. So, if you choose a specialist travel insurance policy read the small print to make sure bouldering is covered by it.
Can I take out bouldering travel insurance if I have a medical condition?
Yes, medical conditions do not affect the premium. You will need to declare any medical conditions, injuries or treatment within the last two years, and this is then referred to the underwriters who will assess any special terms.
Is there a maximum age restriction with your bouldering travel insurance?
You can purchase our bouldering insurance online up until 74 years old, above this age you would need to call us on 01494 484800 and we will be able to refer your quote to our underwriters. Please note, our quotes are based on your age at the start date of cover.
