Choosing the right altitude cover
Our trekking insurance works in this way to ensure that those trekking to 1,500m, for example, don’t have to pay the same premium as those heading to Everest Base Camp. With greater altitude comes greater risks. Not only does the likelihood of a claim increase, but so too does the cost of rescuing a stranded trekker or hiker. Make sure you select the appropriate cover for your activity.
What is Hiking Insurance?
Hiking is included in our Hiking and Trekking Insurance policy and will protect you whether you are heading abroad or staying in the UK. Hiking, especially in less accessible places comes with risks of accidents. Our Sports Travel Insurance can cover medical expenses and repatriation when abroad and our Sports Accident Insurance can cover personal liability and activities in the UK.
