Another insurance thread 28-Nov-2013 At 10:36:11 PM E.W.
Hi all,

I am off on a 9 month to year stint overseas basically working towards AMGA/IFMGA certification. Insurance is proving to be difficult to come by -

I have previously used NZAC and Insure4less - the former only covering aussies climbing in NZ, the latter declined to insure me for such a lengthy period (I will continue to hound them...)
I am a member of the Austrian Alpine Club and spoke to their insurers regarding the possibility of paying the extra $ to extend cover past their 8 week standard, however they have informed me that a) the AAC insurance does not cover for any type of "training" and b) they have another form of insurance, however this will not cover the length of the trip. Basically we cannot help you sorry.

I am looking into Global Rescue which seems promising, however this appears to be search and rescue/evac cover only. So the life or death evac stuff may be covered, and the lost luggage etc is covered through standard travel insurance, but what about the broken leg from a fall etc? Incorporated into the global rescue cover?

Unfortunately standard insure4less travel insurance policy does not appear to cover any form of climbing, backcountry skiing etc

Can anyone help?
