BMC office Coronavirus closing information

Posted by Alex Messenger on 24/03/2020
We'll be back soon.

Following the latest advice from the government, the BMC office in Manchester is temporarily closing from 5pm on Tuesday 24 March. We'll be back as soon as we can - until then stay safe.

With all our staff working from home, we are operating as normal across many areas. However, some aspects of the BMC’s work have changed.

Travel Insurance
You can still buy BMC Travel Insurance but remember that it will not cover any claim in any way caused by or resulting from Covid-19 claims.

Travel Insurance claims
Find out how to claim here. Our claims helpline is open as normal. Call 01623 631 331 or email claims@foggtravelinsurance.com

Travel Insurance emergencies
The 24-hour Intana Global Line is open as normal: +44 20 7902 7405

Membership
Our online membership is open as normal. But if you’re a new member then we won’t be able to send you a joining pack at the moment.

BMC shop
The BMC shop is now shut. 

How to contact us
It’s not currently possible to phone the BMC office, but you can email our staff if you have a specialist question.

If you have an urgent question about any aspect of your BMC membership or insurance, then please email office@thebmc.co.uk. This address is being monitored by BMC staff as normal, although please bear with us as we will be giving priority to the most urgent issues.


Can I go climbing and hill walking?
The BMC and mountain rescue teams advise all climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers to stay in their home area and put all climbing and hill walking on hold.
