Five reasons why you need BMC Travel Insurance

BMC Insurance: there when you need it.

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

Adventurous people like you have been trusting us to protect them for over 30 years, and we sell over 15,000 policies every year. Take out travel insurance with us and not only do you have gold-standard cover, you’ve got our legendary expertise behind you too.

We’re not a faceless insurance company. We’re the national representative body for climbers, walkers and mountaineers in England and Wales. We exist to fight for the rights of walkers and climbers and our insurance cover is no exception. BMC Travel Insurance is built for the mountains.

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 Speciality Assist 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
No age loading until you're 70

4.  We're competitively priced

We regularly review our rates and terms and conditions and check these against other adventure insurance providers. All our policies are competitively priced.

Children travel for free on our family policies. We 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. 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.
