Check out World Nomads travel insurance plans when rock climbing. Be adequately covered if injuries or extreme weather issues strike.
When looking for a mix of thrills, adventure and breath-taking natural landscapes, rock climbing delivers on all three. With so many top rock climbing destinations globally such as the Dolomites in Italy, Kalymnos in Greece, and Yosemite National Park in the USA, adrenaline junkies don’t have to look far.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced climber you may want to consider travel insurance as rock climbing can test your physical and mental abilities.
Insurance is essential if you are injured, severe weather derails your trip, or your equipment is lost or damaged.
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.
Depending on your Country of Residence and whether you’ve selected the Standard or Explorer plan, we may offer coverage for rock climbing for the following:
Residents of some countries may require an upgrade to include certain rock climbing activities and at certain altitudes.
While there are many activities available on the Standard Plan, those feeling adventurous can upgrade to the Explorer Plan, which offers higher benefits and cover for a broader range of activities and sports.
Travel insurance tip: to have cover for an adventure sport or activity, you may need to add it to your policy or select a plan with more benefits/coverage when you buy and pay the extra premium, depending on your Country of Residence. Remember, you can’t upgrade your coverage after you buy, so it’s important to get this right on the first go.
Travel insurance is designed for many reasons, for example if extreme weather derails your rock climbing trip, However, there are specific reasons why it’s important for a rock climbing trip. World Nomads offers coverage (up to the policy limits) for:

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.
