Welcome to the BMC Insurance Centre

Everyone taking part in mountaineering and climbing has a duty to ensure that the sport is carried out in the safest way possible, but incidents do happen. The BMC, with Howden, has arranged a variety of insurances for the protection of its members, clubs and officials in the event that you are held responsible for an injury to someone else or damage to their property.

Here you will find information regarding the cover that has been arranged for you and details of other covers you may wish to arrange.

NB. For the protection of BMC members and clubs, the limit of cover provided for Public Liability was increased in 2018 to £15 million. Please note this limit no longer applies to members domicile and clubs located in the Republic of Ireland and the limit in this respect is restricted to £10 million.
