For climbers heading overseas our Sports Travel Insurance is a perfect policy for you. Not only will it provide cover for your standard travel insurance concerns, but it will also protect you whilst you are out on the rock-face too.
Each policy includes emergency medical expenses cover, so if you were to injured yourself abroad on a climb, the hospital bill will be taken care of. There’s also protection for your equipment, whether it is owned by you or hired, as well as a whole host of other benefits.
We can provide cover on a single-trip basis or if you intend to travel overseas more than once, our annual cover could be right for you.
Our Sports Accident Insurance for rock climbing is being used increasingly more by rock climbers to gain personal accident and sports injury protection to insure against the financial effects of a sports injury sustained whilst rock climbing in the UK or rock climbing abroad (which can be covered on our sports travel cover).
The cover provides an annual policy offering 24 hour worldwide sports accident cover whilst rock climbing. Whilst you cannot insure against the likelihood of physical injury whilst rock climbing – you can insure against the financial harm that follows temporary or permanent physical disablement from a rock climbing related injury.

Fantastic company, wouldn’t go anywhere else! Great customer service and competitive pricing – 5 stars from me!
Outstanding service! The support provided when my husband had an accident in France could not be faulted.
100% confidence in this company. I unfortunately had to make a claim last year when my golf clubs were stolen. The claims process was straightforward and well supported by SportsCover Direct.
First class! Simple, efficient and professional. The whole process was extremely simple from beginning to end.
I have used SportsCover Direct several times now for sports and summer sun insurance. They are first class at covering pre-existing medical conditions.
