Snowcard Insurance
« on: July 11, 2019, 08:41:37 am »
Just noted today that my renewal quote was double my old one - Caving without a local cave rescue team has been moved to the 'Pro Adventure Category'. Just a heads up for the expedition season.

The BCA now has foreign caving insurance. Check the website.

Seems to be more expensive that Snowcard if you want the US included! Without the US is very reasonable though.

I am 65 with no medical issues, and have a yearly Insurance cover for Europe only, for trips of less than 45 days.
The BCA Insurance quote was £302.35
Snowcard      "            "        "    £178.54

Have I missed something, or is the BCA Insurance better in some way?

I take it thats a quote for non-exploratory caving. For exploratory caving for anywhere (not including the US), the prices are a little higher:

In a country without cave rescue: £694.24
In a country with cave rescue: £296.75

My current policy which I got in September 2018 was £248, which was for exploratory caving in areas without cave rescue and included the US. So these prices have hugely increased over the last year.
