Product Details

The main reason that we have put this insurance in place is for clients who arrive without the necessary cover for the activity in which they are partaking. It is not a substitute for travel insurance, but it could be an excellent add-on for those whose travel insurance may not cover trekking to the required altitude, or sports that are considered extreme. This policy is specifically for those partaking in mountain sports and covers most sports including mountaineering. snowshoeing, trekking, running, alpine skiing and cross country skiing.

Please note that we book this insurance with GBC Montagne, underwritten by Mutuaide Assistance - your contract will be with Mutuaide Assistance, and we book your insurance online when we receive your order. You cover will commence when you receive the contract and confirmation from us. Please be careful when booking short notice insurance - we are in and out of the office, and often in the mountains with no internet signal ourselves, so if you are booking with less than 24 hours to go you should contact us to make sure we can organise this for you. It normally takes us seconds to arrange - but you are not covered until we've booked it, so please be aware of this before booking, and do check your junk mail in case our confirmation email doesn't arrive.

There are 3 options, so be careful to tick the correct boxes when you book:

1. EU residents * (including those who are resident in Switzerland, Norway and the UK) who are visiting France, Switzerland, Italy or Spain - £4.90 per day
2. EU residents * (including those who are resident in Switzerland, Norway and the UK) who are visiting the rest of Europe - £5.95 per day
3. Non EU residents * visiting any country - £11.50 per day

List of EU countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden

* For the purposes of this policy, you must have been an EU-resident for 6 months if booking the EU-resident rate.

Quantity means the number of people for whom you are booking. If you are booking for more than 1 person, please enter the names of the people we are booking insurance for in the "Notes" section. We cannot book insurance if we don't know the names of the people you would like to be covered.

We assume that any booking is for consecutive days, starting from the date that you input as the start date. If you need non-consecutive days, that's no problem, you just need to let us know. As long as you make it clear what you need, we'll book it for you. There's a notes section where you can let us know the precise dates you need.

The cover for EU residents is a very reasonable price and offers good cover. The cover for non-EU residents is more expensive and covers less. We would recommend non-EU residents to purchase a more comprehensive travel insurance such as Travel Guard or Rip Cord before your trip - this local insurance is purely intended for those who didn't organise it before they arrived, in order that we will allow you to participate in the activity (we cannot take uninsured clients).

A summary of the policies can be found below with the full policies (in French) available at the end of each policy description.

There is no altitude limit to this policy.

It is up to you to ensure that the policy meets your needs before booking.
