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

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.

 
Sir Chris Bonington: “BMC Insurance... for me it’s the only choice”

As Europe is unlocked, BMC travel insurance is loaded with the essential cover that you need for adventure.  

From 10 July, many European destinations are opening up to UK travellers. This means that you can still have your summer adventure – from sport climbing in Spain to trekking in the Alps.

BMC travel insurance comes in five policies: Travel, Trek, Rock, Alpine and Ski and High Altitude.

All of our policies include the following Coronavirus cover:

  • 24-hour emergency assistance helpline
  • £10 million emergency medical cover
  • £100,000 Search, rescue and recovery cover

Please be aware that there is no cover for cancellation, curtailment, delays or journey disruption in any way caused by or resulting from coronavirus / Covid-19. Read more about the Covid-travel FAQs here
