Hi,
Im planning a climbing trip to Morocco and it may be prudent to have insurance.Im currently a resident of Gibraltar and im finding it difficult to find climbing insurance.
Can anyone recommend an insurer outside of the UK.

thanks Simon

When are you heading out there? I got mine through the BMC (Im out there in December to Janauary). It isnt cheap, but having seen someone crack a vertebrae from jumping a few meters into the sea a few years ago, and the costs of their extraction out of the country, its worth it.

I couldn't get BMC as I live in France - is Gibralta British? Not trying to be funny, I have no idea!

In reply to silo: Si, It's Chris. Get AAC UK membership. Covers us being resident in Gib. Don't even bother with the BMC, sent many emails back and forth in the past and they haven't been helpful at all.
