BMC Insurance

BMC Insurance

Are you looking for BMC insurance? BMC insurance spans several types of cover from Civil Liability Cover, that is part of the membership package through to optional cover such as international climbing travel insurance.

Summit Financial Services were originally established to support BMC members who were looking for life insurance, critical illness and income protection cover. BMC members were finding high rates because they climbed or were looking for cover to compliment travel insurance. Travel insurance provides cover to support rescue costs, hospital bills and repatriation. However, there was a distinct need for extra financial protection to meet the costs of paying bills or supporting a family should the worst happen.

Summit Financial Services are a trusted membership benefit of The British Mountaineering Council (BMC). We specialise in arranging life insurance, critical illness cover, income protection and more for climbers, mountaineers and hill walkers.

What is BMC insurance? 

The BMC is the representative body that exists to promote the interest and protect the freedoms of mountaineers, climbers and hillwalkers. The BMC recognises that each of these activities come with the risk of personal injury and even death. Therefore, those who participate in these activities should be aware of the risks and accept that they are responsible for their actions. 

There are different types of BMC insurance- those that are embedded in the membership package and those that are an optional additional type of cover (e.g., travel insurance). The cover included within the membership package depends on the type of membership you hold with the BMC and should be checked with them. 

Fortunately, with the help of Summit Financial Services, it is possible to get life insurance, income protection and critical illness cover for a range of different outdoor activities. 

The BMC also offers wide-ranging travel insurance cover for travellers, trekkers, hill walkers, climbers, mountaineers and skiers. All of their policies are designed by active experts for BMC members.
