Mountaineering and trekking travel insurance - World First

Mountaineering and trekking travel insurance

Insurance for mountaineers, climbers, hill-walkers and adventure travellers

So you are heading into the wilderness? Don't go without getting a mountaineering, walking and trekking travel insurance quote from us. We are specialist travel insurers and will have the perfect policy for your travels. It doesn't matter whether or not you intend to go orienteering in the Picos de Europa, trekking in the Himalaya or climbing in the Alps, we can cover you. We cover trekking and mountaineering up to 1000 metres as standard on our Single and Multi-Trip policies and also offer backpacker policies with more great benefits.

However, if you want to go even further - and higher - we can also cover you for trekking to Everest base camp and mountaineering up to 6,000 metres.

Benefits of our mountaineering, trekking and walking travel insurance include personal liability, cancellation, medical expenses, luggage and money, plus access to our 24-hour emergency assistance and an emergency repatriation service should the unexpected happen.

We also cover a wide range of activities as standard and offer winter sports travel insurance for skiing and snowboarding holidays too. And if you are a frequent traveller, then you may want to get a quote for our cheap annual travel insurance.

To make sure you get the cover you need take a look at the policy wording or give us a call. We'll be able to give you a quick answer and an idea of how little you'll pay for your premium from us.
