Save moor this summer

Posted by Alex Messenger on 03/07/2020

This summer, all BMC UK travel insurance policies include a 15% donation to The Climate Project: our new project to help combat climate change.

Has COVID changed your travel plans this summer? If you're planning on staying local for your adventures this summer, then we've got some great news. 

This summer, all BMC UK travel insurance policies include a 15% donation to The Climate Project: our new project to combat climate change.

The Climate Project is a new campaign by the BMC's Access and Conservation Trust, supporting Moors for the Future in their vital work to restore damaged peatland moor in the Peak District.

Peat moorlands cover 15% of the UK, but many have been dug up, drained or destroyed. The Peak District moorland landscape is now the most degraded in Europe and damaged peat can be a great carbon emitter. Moors for the Future was founded in 2003 to fight back. So far they’ve transformed over nearly 8,000 acres of peat moors across the Peak District and South Pennines.

Every UK travel policy purchased this summer includes a 15% donation to The Climate Project, so you’re not only helping the environment by staying local, but also fighting climate change.

The Climate Project supports the work of Moors for the Future. Your support will help:  

  • Actively fight climate change
  • Reduce wildfire risk
  • Reduce flooding risk
  • Protect endangered wildlife

BMC travel insurance includes: 

  • 24-hour emergency assistance helpline
  • £10 million emergency medical cover
  • £100,000 Search, rescue and recovery cover
  • £5,000 cancellation and curtailment
