Specialist Rock Climbing Insurance

Can’t wait to get out into those wide open spaces (and the narrow, tight ones too)? We’re with you! Whatever your level, we can provide you with the specialist rock climbing insurance you need.

Our rock climbing insurance is available to UK residents climbing at home or abroad. If you are set to explore the crags of the UK, our Sports Accident Insurance will cover you for things such as personal injuries, physiotherapy fees and Income Protection.

Heading abroad and your insurance doesn’t cover climbing, bouldering or via ferrata? Our Activity TopUp policy can add cover for your climbing escapades with benefits such as emergency medical fees included.

For full protection, our Sports Travel Insurance is the policy for you. As well as the added climbing cover, it works in a similar way that normal travel cover does, protecting you from things such as cancellation and curtailment, lost baggage and flight delays.

    What's included in your Sports Travel Insurance policy?

    Our policies for those rock climbing abroad include the following benefits as standard:

    Cancellation Cover

    Up to £5,000 worth of cover if you need to cancel a climbing trip due to illness or injury prior to travelling or if you have to curtail a trip prior to your scheduled return date for unexpected circumstances.

    Sports Equipment Cover

    From helmets to ropes, to harnesses, it’s likely you’ll be using specialist equipment on your trip. We can cover up to £5,6000 worth of items against loss, damage and theft.

    Emergency Medical Expenses

    Hospital and medical bills abroad can be astronomical. That’s why with your climbing cover in place you can rest assured that you have £10 million worth of protection for treatment and repatriation.

    Activity and Race Entry Fees

    Should an injury mean that you are unable to take part in climbing, whether that’s an organised even or training course, we can provide up to £500 worth of cover in order for you to recoup the costs.

    Travel Delay Cover

    Flight delays are frustrating and eat away at your important time on the rock-face. We provide up to £300 worth of cover if industrial action, adverse weather or mechanical breakdown causes a delay to your travel.

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