Autumn rocks: we've got you covered for Covid-19

Posted by Alex Messenger on 06/10/2021

As Europe reopens for travel, BMC Travel Insurance has got you covered for Covid-19.

As the autumn nights draw in, the clouds gather and the temps drop, who isn’t dreaming of heading to hotter rocks?

From 4 October, the European climbing dream has become easier, as Covid-19 travel restrictions have been reduced.

To make planning your hot rock trips easier, from 1 September we've added Covid-19 cover into all BMC Travel Insurance policies.

Our new Covid-19 cover includes:

  • £5,000 cancellation cover: if you test positive for Covid-19 within 14 days of departure
  • Medical and repatriation: Covid-19 related illness
  • Being denied boarding: if you test positive for Covid-19 prior to your return home

And that’s on top of the world-class cover that you get with every BMC Travel Insurance policy:

  • 24-hour emergency assistance helpline
  • £10 million emergency medical cover
  • £100,000 search and rescue cover
  • £10,000 personal accident cover
  • £2,500 baggage cover

You can get cover with BMC Rock insurance from just £47 for a week

Join us: the benefits

You’ll need to be a BMC member, but you can join us by Direct Debit from just £18 for a whole year. Joining is easy and you can take out this membership as part of the insurance purchase. 

For full terms and conditions see our Evidence of Cover at www.thebmc.co.uk/insurance

* Policy details: £46.70 for 7 days European Rock policy up to age 69.
