Iím off to the Alps for a three week trip this summer and will be climbing, including glacier/snow travel up to 4,000m.
Iíve previously looked at acquiring AAC membership http://aacuk.org.uk/ as a means of getting reduced hut fees but also noticed that it includes some form of insurance including mountain rescue, repatriation etc. What Iím unsure about is whether this cover is suitable on its own or whether Iíd need additional holiday insurance.
Iím also interested how this compares to, and whether it could be used (with appropriate cover) in replacement of the BMC policy (Alpine) which Iíve opted to go for in the past?
In reply to eddiejames_uk: I have been using AAC on it's own ever since the BMC premiums for annual cover went up significantly. It's not as comprehensive as BMC but to be honest the BMC prices have gone through the roof. You need to take out separate travel insurance however as that is covered with BMC but not AAC but I have that with my bank account.
