overseas insurance that covers climbing 1-Sep-2006 At 4:19:42 PM MartinR
>> The RACV plus the AAC (UK) seems a good combo for approx $625?

I got a quote direct from the underwriters of AAC (UK) that allows you to extend past the standard 6 weeks of cover.

"Yes, it's possible to extend the limit of 6 weeks. The per-day rate incl. insur. taxes is 1,50 (individual up to 70 years of age). The minimum rate in every case is 10,50 - the maximum duration of insurance coverage is 180 days."

Thats around $2.50 AUD at the current exchange rates for a maximum of 180 days.

>> I would suspect that a basic mountain helicopter rescue and couple week hospital stay would be more
>>like $100,000 worth. Don't skimp on a policy that only covers $10,000

The AAC policy may be a bit light on for the USA medical system with a maximum of 7,500 for medical expenses. But at least they allow unlimited cover to fly you back home with an Air Ambulance. So if you are still alive once you have eaten through the first 7,500 you may make it home :-). They allow 22,000 for the rescue which should be enought to get you off the mountain even in the US.
