Our Scrambling 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 scrambling. 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 scrambling, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

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

Why Scrambling Insurance cr

Why do you need Scrambling Insurance?

Scrambling is considered a high risk activity, which is commonly done without the use of ropes or other protective climbing equipment. 

Scrambling can be a hazardous activity due to uncertainty of weather and the unpredictability of the rock face and surface. It is always possible to mistakenly go off route and venture onto more serious terrain.

Ensuring that you have proper protection in place to cover yourself against accident or injuries that could possibly occur is highly advised.
