Why choose us
Why do you need Walking Insurance?
Walking, including both fell and hill walking is generally considered less strenuous than trekking or climbing, due to the flatter landscapes. It is also classified as less risky.
Walking, however does carry it’s element of danger, largely dependent on the location of the walk itself. Common injuries can include trips and falls as well as twists and sprains, often as a result of walking on uneven terrain.
Therefore, we still recommend that suitable walking insurance is purchased for protection against potential injury.

This means that you will not be covered for any walking or ascents above 2,500m or walking involving ropes, crampons or ice axes. If you plan to go above 2,500m, please select “Walking – up to 4,500m” or “Walking – up to 7,000m”.
