I'm going to be working in Switzerland for six months and I'll still be a UK resident for tax/ insurance purposes. While I'm there I will be covered under my companies policy for normal day to day stuff but it does not cover above 3000m, climbing, glacier crossing etc. I've tried AAC but they said I'd need to buy cover for the full six months, as do all the other companies I've checked with. This is difficult to justify as I'll probably only be in the mountains for 10 to 14 days over the six months. Does anyone know of a company that lets you buy individual days of cover or have any other solution that means I'm paying less than £70 a day for cover?

Look at REGA perhaps.

I live in Zurich. You need rega for mountain rescue otherwise they charge you for the helicopter that's 30 for the year and definitely worth having.

Above that it's law for your company to provide accident insurance in you're living in Switzerland for over 3 months I think, and that covers extreme sports.

Pm me if you need more info

Thanks for the ideas guys.

I think it's more trouble than its worth to try and get my company to provide better insurance. The hr department are not very on it. Only occured to them I'd need a permit a couple of weeks before I started here.  I think I'm going to go with true traveler  closer to the time and use their ''already traveling" option. Works out an ok price if I assume I'll only need it for around two months.
