ACA Climbing Insurance Survey Ė Please Help 10-Apr-2006 At 9:48:42 AM MartinR

One of the aims of the ACA (http://www.climb.org.au) is to provide climbing insurance for overseas travel. As you would imagine Insurance companies are not really that keen to provide this type of insurance. So the ACA is currently trying to convince them (I got that job, somehow!!).

For this I need the help of the climbing community to provide information on the design of such a policy. So we have created a very short survey of 11 questions which takes about 1 minute to complete (maybe 2 if you are an aid climber!). See link below:

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=824031994751

Completing the survey will help design the policy, but more importantly will show that there are climbers interested in such a policy. We would need 100ís of climbers to make it possible. So PLEASE fill in the survey if you are ever likely to climb O/S.

Searching the existing topics on Climbing Insurance shows, that old links no longer exist, companies donít offer climbing insurance or only provide insurance to local residents (few in the UK), etc. The only policies that I have found that may be options for Australian climbers are:
1). Austrian Alpine Club http://www.aacuk.org.uk, offers climbing insurance for members of the club.
2). IHI out of Denmark, http://www.ihi.com. Recommended by Eric Krista from Australian Section of NZAC.

I would value feedback from any climbers who have used these or any other insurance policies in the recent past.
