Planning an adventure? Remember to pack BMC Travel Insurance. We’ve got you covered: from bouldering in France to trekking in India, sport climbing in Thailand to new routes in the Himalaya. Here are five reasons why BMC Travel Insurance is built for the mountains.
1. You can trust us
BMC Travel Insurance is built for the mountains. We sell over 15,000 policies every year, and have been protecting adventurous people like you for over 30 years. We’re not a faceless insurance company: we’re the national representative body for climbers, walkers and mountaineers in England and Wales. This means that we exist to fight for the rights of walkers and climbers and our insurance cover is no exception. By taking out travel insurance with us, you'll get gold-standard cover and our legendary expertise behind you too.
2. Our policies are designed for you
Our insurance is designed to protect you on your adventures, whether that’s bouldering in France, trekking in India or climbing the world’s highest peaks. We’ve got five different policies so that you can find the right fit, from travel, trekking, hill walking, climbing, skiing to mountaineering. We can also arrange specialist cover for unclimbed peaks and inaccessible regions.
3. 24-hour emergency assistance is just a phone call away
Facing a medical emergency? Our 24-hour Intana Global helpline is a phone call away. Each policy comes with a personalised and durable emergency contact card to take on your travels. If the worst does happen, you’ll be very glad of our comprehensive cover:
• 24-hour emergency assistance helpline
• £100,000 search, rescue and recovery cover
• £10 million emergency medical cover
• £10,000 personal accident cover
4. We're competitively priced
All our policies are competitively priced, as we regularly review our rates and terms and conditions and check these against other adventure insurance providers.
Children travel for free on our family policies. We have removed the limit on the number of children that can be included on family polices at no extra cost. There are also reduced rates for couples, families and single parents buying annual multi-trip policies.
If you hold a professional award (AMI, BMG, BAIML or MTA) then our professional extension is now completely free.
5. You're covered for Covid-19
From 1 September 2021, our new Covid-19 cover includes £5,000 cancellation cover (f you test positive for Covid-19 within 14 days of departure), medical and repatriation for Covid-19 related illness, and being denied boarding if you test positive for Covid-19 prior to your return home.
6. We’re working for you
All profit from our insurance scheme is invested back into our vital work for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers. This includes access work such as buying crags to secure access for future generations.
