Our Mountaineering Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance policy is designed to protect those travelling abroad to take part in activities such as mountaineering. We provide cover for a range of mountaineering disciplines including climbing and trekking.

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 mountaineering, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

For those moutaineering in the UK, you may find our Sports Accident Insurance best suited. The policy provides a range of benefits including personal liability and income protection.

            Frequently Asked Questions

            Yes, our Mountaineering Travel Insurance can generally be taken out even if you have a medical condition. We can almost always offer cover at no extra cost, but occasionally our underwriters may apply special terms if you subsequently needed to make a claim relating to your condition.

            We provide cover for bouldering, rock climbing, via ferrata, trad climbing, multi-pitch climbing, ice climbing, and sea cliff climbing. You will be covered for your selected sport and any other listed in the same or lower sports groups. You can search for your specific activity in our sports travel group list.

            If you are climbing a mountain and planning to use any climbing equipment such as ropes, guides or crampons, we would class this as mountaineering.
