Yes. As per our booking conditions, it is essential for you to arrange your own insurance to cover at least the mountain elements of your trip. Exact policy details vary widely but as a minimum you should ensure that emergency search & rescue insurance; emergency medical expenses and repatriation are all covered as well as trip cancellation insurance. Insuring for loss of theft of your personal items is also recommended. This policy needs to be relevant to both the nature of the activity e.g. climbing, mountaineering, off piste skiing, ski mountaineering as well as the Geographical area e.g. many of our courses climb peaks over 4000m in the European Alps.
