Why Do You Need Accident Insurance?

As climbers we all know that gravity is constant. That is why we rope up. At some point almost of of us take a fall. While most are securely protected, some are worse than others. With average deductibles over $4,000 an accident could cost you more than you think. With protection from Buddy, you can worry less about the cost of an accident and focus on the crux.

  • Deductibles have risen 63% year over year.
  • Co-insurance requires you to pay a percentage after you've paid your deductible.
  • Buddy is the only accident insurance you can buy by the day.
  • We pay you directly, and you can use the money how you see fit.
