            What is Walking Insurance?

            Whether you are taking a self-guided Coast to Coast walking holiday or exploring some of Kilimanjaro epic treks, our Walking Insurance policy can provide you with a comprehensive cover.

            It is designed to protect you for non technical up to 7,000 meter ascents (where no climbing equipment is planned to be used, except in an emergency) both in the UK and abroad.

            Individuals, families and groups travelling abroad can take advantage of our Sports Travel Insurance policy for walking which will cover them for medical expenses, repatriation and where required, baggage and equipment.

            If you are planning a walking challenge in the UK, our Sports Accident Insurance would be better suited providing personal accident, broken bones and physiotherapy costs as standard, as well as including the option to add on income protection.

            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.
