Our Via Ferrata Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance will cover you whilst participating in via ferrata abroad for leisure or competition, and includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, plus more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have a travel insurance policy in place with another provider such as your bank but it does not include cover for via ferrata, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect climbers taking part in Via Ferrata in the UK. The policy provides a range of benefits including personal liability and income protection.
