/ Decent travel insurance for ice climbing trip?
Has anyone found travel insurance that covers ice climbing abroad that is reasonably cheap? I don't want to pay BMC prices for my single trip as I'm not interested in becoming a member of BMC to merely take out insurance. Unfortunately all 'off the shelf' policies don't include ice climbing and when I phoned AXA up they said they don't customise the policies.
Any recommendations much appreciated.
Snow card they cover all kinds of things including ice climbing.
Nice one, I'll take a look right now...
Check the small print that Dogtag will cover you for the activity you intend.
I bought their insurance earlier this year, but followed through with a phone call to confirm. Having spoke to them on the phone, I withdrew the cover and went with Snowcard instead.
Just finished browsing all suggestions and I think Austrian Alpine club plus a cheap travel policy for the airport and flight stuff is the best. Comes in at around £55.
Cheers for the pointers folks.
