This is how it works

Please note we require a separate application for each climber.

  1. Simply complete and submit the online climbing application form (click here) at least 3 business days before you leave Australia. Once we have this information we will email you confirming:
    • Whether we can insure you and if so,
    • The price for adding cover to your policy.
  2. If you wish to proceed on this basis, we will ask you to email us back when you have bought your normal insure4less travel insurance, advising us:
    • Of your certificate number
    • We will then advise how to pay your additional premium.

Once payment is received, insure4less will issue you with an endorsement to extend cover to include your planned climbing.

Travel Dates Complete!

I'd like my cover to start on

Cover Start Date

Cover Start Date

And it should end on

Please select the date that you plan to return back into Australia or if you are on a one way trip - the date that you will arrive in your final destination.

Cover End Date

Travellers planning to stay in the United States (not Canada) for 365 days or more: Following recent healthcare reforms in the United States we are unable to insure travellers who are planning to be in the United States (not Canada) for 365 days or more.

Cover End Date

 

Will you be travelling to countries outside of the USA & Canada?

If you plan to visit the USA or Canada more than once during your trip, please calculate the total number of days you will be there. Then enter the date leaving USA or Canada as the total number of days from the date arriving.

For example: You will be in the US from 1st March to 31st March (31 days) and 10th October to 26th October (17 days) = 48 days in total. So you would have a start date of 1st March and an end date of 17th April. Ie 48 days. You will receive your certificate in an email, so simply reply to the email advising the correct dates of travel within USA or Canada and we will endorse the policy accordingly.
