/ Insurance for Expeditions.
Please don't say The BMC I don't think the cover is very good and it is outrageously expensive.
I have used Snowcard for insurance on expeditions before.
Sadly, once I had to make use of the insurance, and the service was good and fair.
For us non-brits, with the demise of IHI's coverage, insurance is getting more problematic. The way forward seems to be a 2 coverage approach with 1 insurer providing rescue and another company providing the travel component
Yeh, Globalrescue for the medevac and regular insurance for the touristy bit. In some cases you might want to skimp on the touristy bit (I always used to) but in the case of the US, medical costs are so crazy it's mad not to have coverage, plus flight delays, lost baggage etc.
