Well here I went again!! Time to renew the Annual Multi Trip Travel Insurance ahead of the ski season. No problem, straight on to dogtag.co.uk with whom I have been well served for a number of years, with their SPORTS+ policy which covered Ski Touring and Climbing. Followed the laborious on-line application for renewal, pressed send and, I know you're ahead of me here, BFPO Post Code not valid. Resorted to the old fashioned Dog and Bone and was told Sorry you don't live in UK so you can't have it. "But you gave it to me for the last 2 years" says Guy..."Ah, but now we have a new under writer who won't do it. Went to BASI web site (of which august body Guy Gourdior is a member) only to doscover that I am covered to teach anywhere in the world, but not allowed to have their travel policy pour famille because I don't live in UK. Now getting a little Pi**ed, I went to the BMC and same story. "So whats the point of being a fu**ing member then?" "We produce a nice magazine" she says! Finally back to "Specialist" HM Forces Insurers and those very nice people at JBI. jbionline.com Super annual family policy, inclusive of most AT and Skiing activities for just under £70. A seperate cover for Guy at £140 for Ski Mountaineering, Mountaineering and altitude work (3,500m+). So boycott dogtag.co.uk, BASI and other UK blind firms and stick with these guys.
