        Travelling abroad?

        Whilst our Sports Accident insurance is valid worldwide, the benefits do not include cover for medical treatment abroad or repatriation. If you are going abroad take a look at our Sports Travel insurance to cover your whole trip, or if you already have travel cover but need extra cover for your sport or activity for a day(s), look at our Activity TopUp insurance.

        Via Ferrata Insurance

         

        A via ferrata is a mountain route equipped with fixed cables, stemples, ladders and bridges accessible to people with varying climbing abilities. Via ferrate routes are graded according to their difficulty and are specially designed so that people can climb without using their own ropes. The first via ferrate were built in the dolomite mountain region of Italy but can now be found in many European countries including the UK and a few places in the United States, Canada, Malaysia and Singapore.

        More about via ferrata

         

        As with any adventure activity via ferrata has an element of risk of personal injury. Via ferrata users climb under their own judgment and at their own risk. Those trying the sport for the first time should always start under the supervision of a professionally trained guide. Check with local adventure tour operators for availability. For experienced via ferrata climbers it is best to go with someone who knows the way and to check on the status of the route before setting off.

         

        Via ferrata has been given a group 2 rating with ourselves for medium risk activities. We strongly recommend taking out suitable insurance prior to engaging in the sport.
