Bouldering travel insurance

Bouldering, the term for climbing man-made or natural rock faces without supports such as wires, is an increasingly popular sport among many groups of people. It can give you full-body conditioning, an adrenaline rush and is also a great way to explore both nature and cities while travelling!

Our travel insurance policies all come with automatic cover for over 50 sports and activities including insurance for bouldering (up to 4 metres with a crash mat). Please note that whilst these activities are included as standard, rock climbing isn’t, so you’ll need to add extreme sports cover to your policy if you’re setting off to scale a cliff face.

If you want to try bouldering on your holiday, you’ll be covered by our policies. However, please note that you will not be covered if this is the main purpose of your trip.

Whether it’s your first try or you’re a veteran boulderer, with InsureandGo you can rest assured knowing that your travel insurance won’t be something to worry about. As always terms and conditions apply, so check the policy wording for full details of this and the other activities we cover.

Why do you need travel insurance for bouldering?

Whilst incredibly fun, bouldering can also be a risky activity, even when done with approved crash mats and at safe heights. It’s important to make sure you have a travel insurance policy that will cover you in the event of an accident or injury. We’ll have you covered!
