Why is a Hiking- & Mountaineering Insurance useful when going on holiday?
From a sporty weekend to a skiing holiday with the family: low mountain ranges and high mountains are increasing in popularity as a travel destination by aspirant mountaineers. Whether hiking in the Rhön region, passing via ferrata, trekking in the Alps or skiing and snowboarding in the Carpathian Mountains – this extraordinary scenery of nature has great attraction on anyone looking for an active holiday. Nevertheless the risks that lurk in case of ambitious tours away from well-trodden paths or by using a heavily used ski run, is often underestimated – also by the choice of the suitable travel insurance.
Time and time again over-enthusiasm and lack of experience at route planning lead to emergency situations that cause high rescue costs e.g. by a helicopter mission. These include, beside accidents involving injured people or blockage of people/groups, people who cannot free themselves without help from outside as well as emergencies due to dehydration and exhaustion. According to DAV (Deutscher Alpenverein) the risk of being killed in an accident while mountaineering has declined over the last 60 years and has now fallen to a historic low level. Since the nineties however mountain rescue teams have turned out to organized searches and rescues more often. The reason: an increased number of people are attracted to the mountains and in case of an emergency situation in the mountains rescue services are called out quickly by mobile phone.
In case you already have a foreign travel health insurance or accident insurance for the journey and feel safe on your tour, you should note the following: in case of sickness or an accident you are protected against high costs. Nevertheless only when you are abroad, not when you are hiking in Germany. Someone who comes into a desperate situation e.g. in the German Alps will have to pay expensive rescue cost by himself. If you want to play it safe, you take out the low priced hiking- & mountaineering insurance online right now. The insurance covers the risk of a rescuing mission as well as the consequences of an accident. With our simple calculator you can easily take out your hiking- & mountaineering insurance online – as an addition to your general travel insurance and only for the period of time you need it.
