Insurance Information

It is a condition of joining any of our trips that you must have Comprehensive Travel Insurance which must cover you against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). This need not necessarily be the case if you are carrying out the trip in your country of residence. If you already have a travel insurance policy then please check with your insurer if you would be covered for “open water swimming.”
Your swimtrekking instructor will ask to see a copy of your valid insurance policy at the pre-trip briefing in order to provide an emergency contact number and a policy number. Please be aware that it is your responsibility to ensure you are fully covered for the activities that you choose to undertake whilst travelling with BAC Travel.

Our Insurance

The Swimtrekking-expeditions programme includes a Insurance policy through ASD Swimtrekking membership which covers only for swimtrekking activities. If you want to be fully covered, you must ensure that the policy you do take, provides adequate protection and covers you for open water swimming specialist Travel Insurance for your next Adventure.
