Caving and life insurance



Hi Im fairly new to caving only been about five times now, all trips down swildons and my last trip was through sump 1. The problem i have is my wife worrying about me so i have decided to put her mind at rest and take out life insurance should something terrible happen, however it seems most companys dont like to insure caving/potholing as it is considered high risk. Can anybody out there advise me of any companys that insure high risk people like us. Any help would be appreciated.

Try posting this question in the main Uk Caving section, more people will see it there, as this is the Mendip section and generally we cannot read or write :LOL:

Maybe one of the Admin guy's will move it for you ??
