Mountaineering Insurance 

mountaineering insurance

Summit Financial Services is different from many other insurance companies. We specialise in arranging mountaineering insurance, critical illness cover, income protection and private medical insurance for climbers, hillwalkers and mountaineers. We aim to provide the best quote that already takes your mountaineering activities into account. 

Mountaineering insurance experts

As mountaineering insurance experts, we know that not all climbing activities are the same. This means we know which questions to ask to ensure we provide you with the most accurate quote and get you the right level of financial protection. We understand the difference between trad climbing, sport climbing, a scramble in Snowdonia and a trek in Nepal. Our knowledge and understanding of your sport means we can advise each client individually, saving both time and any confusion. What’s more, Summit Financial Services are a trusted membership benefit of the British Mountaineering Council and Mountaineering Scotland.
