What's included in your Ice Climbing Insurance policy?

Our policies for people heading overseas for ice climbing include the following benefits as standard:

Cancellation Cover

If you are unable to go on your pre-booked ice climbing holiday due to an injury or illness to you or a close relative, you could be eligible to claim up to £5,000 for the irretrievable costs from booking your trip.

Sports Equipment Cover

From crampons, to boots to helmets it’s likely that you’ll be taking and using a wide range of specialist equipment. We can provide up to £5,600 worth of cover against loss, damage and theft of these items.

Emergency Medical Expenses

Ice climbing is a risky sport and the threat of injury is very real. Throw in the fact that being rescued from a mountain can be a very costly scenario and you’ll be glad of our £10 million emergency medical fees cover.

Activity and Race Entry Fees

You may have booked on to a tutored ice climbing session or a guided tour. If an injury means you are unable to join in on that activity, you will be covered up to £500 on your Sports Travel Insurance policy.

Travel Delay Cover

If your flight is delayed it could take a big chunk out of that important climbing time. On our policy we provide cover for the time you are left on the ground due to industrial action, mechanical failure or adverse weather.

Personal Accident

We will pay the sum shown below if during your trip you sustain an injury which results in death or permanent disablement.
