Our Climbing Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance will cover you whilst climbing 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 climbing, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

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

            500+ Sports Covered

            Being a specialist in Sports Insurance, we provide cover for over 500 different sports & activities, far more than other providers.

            What makes our policy different?

            Many standard travel insurance policies will not cover climbing as standard and even if they do, there will likely be exclusions for rock climbing, via ferrata, bouldering or sports climbing, making a specialist policy necessary in these cases. 

            As well as including the more common travel insurance benefits, our policy also provides cover for injuries and accidents resulting from your climbing activities – something commonly excluded in standard travel insurance policies.

            We cover climbing (with ropes and/or guides or bolted) and we class it as a sport that has average risk. We also cover cliff/ice climbing and class it as a sport with higher risk.  Simply select the option you require from our quote page.
