Check out World Nomads travel insurance plans for your rock climbing adventures.
If you’re looking for a mix of thrills, adventure and awesome natural landscapes, rock climbing delivers on all three. Top global rock climbing destinations include the Dolomites in Italy, Kalymnos in Greece, and Yosemite National Park in the U.S. And right here in Canada we’ve got top spots like Squamish, Val-David and Niagara Escarpment. World Nomads offers travel insurance for international travel and travel outside your home province.
Rock climbing can test your physical and mental abilities. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced climber, you may want to consider travel insurance in case you become injured during your trip. Travel insurance is essential in case you suffer an injury or sickness while travelling. World Nomads travel insurance plans provide emergency medical and dental coverage. Our plans also offer trip interruption cover for missed connections due to inclement weather, and also provide cover for your sporting equipment.
World Nomads covers most rock climbing activities whether it is an indoor rock climbing day with friends or a week away at Yosemite National Park. However, we will not be able to cover you for rock climbing over 6,000 metres (19,685 feet) or if you plan on free soloing.
The rock climbing activities we cover include:
Activities in our plans are assigned different levels based on risk. Indoor rock climbing is a level 2, bouldering is a level 2, and outdoor rock climbing under 6,000m is a level 3. We do not cover climbing over 6,000m. Special exclusions also apply.
When you go through the purchase path, list the type of rock climbing, along with any other activities you plan to participate in while travelling. You’ll pay an additional premium for level 2 and 3 activities.
World Nomads covers more than 150 adventure activities, sports, work and volunteer experiences. Check out this article or the policy description for a full list of what is and is not covered.
Travel insurance is designed to cover losses arising from sudden, unexpected, and unforeseeable circumstances. For example, what if your rock climbing trip gets derailed due to severe weather, causing your flight to be delayed (three (3) hours or more) or cancelled? Or if your airline loses your luggage, or if you fall on a climb? World Nomads offers coverage (up to the policy limits) for:
Some things we may not cover include but are not limited to:
This is only a summary of coverage and does not include the full terms and conditions of the policy.

Never travel without insurance. This was the first time I ever purchased travel insurance and I am so glad I did. A few days into my trip to Spain I twisted my foot heading down to the metro. Thanks to World Nomads I was able to get medical attention in Spain and since, as luck would have it, I had a fracture that required surgery, they got me a flight home the next day. Filing a claim was surprisingly easy and when the claim was finally processed, I was reimbursed for all of my expenses including things like the extra week in the hotel I didn't get to take advantage of.
I recently had a serious injury traveling on my own & the team was amazing. Being confused with a brain injury they took care of everything. Claiming was no problem, they were on the phone constantly to see if all was OK. I can't recommend them enough. Absolutely fantastic & l will always travel with World Nomads Insurance. Thanks guys for getting me home safely.
I was bitten by a monkey at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur. I went to a nearby clinic and they gave me a rabies shot, antibiotics to take for 4 days, pain medicine, and anti-inflammatory medicine.
